~*She's Coming Along Just Fine*~.........

Do you remember this cane lounge I showed you a couple of posts ago well she has finally started her make over. Because of the rain we had been getting I couldn't get out & scrub her, finally yesterday arvo the rain stopped long enough to start. Once she was scrubbed clean I moved her into the garage to dry.


I was up until 2.30am this morning giving her her first coat of paint, kinda thinkin' she's looking better already. Today she received the second coat. One more to go tomorrow & I'm kinda hoping My Darlin' will find the tome tomorrow to make the new base up for me. Two big squashy cushions to sit on & she will be all ready to put out on the front Veranda if she doesn't take up too much room out there...

Am really in the mood at the moment to do up all the things waiting patiently in the shed for me next I think will be a gold & black mirror which needs painting..... white of course..... OK so I'm off to find some fabric for the cushions......
Hoping you guys are having a creative weekend......

Hi Lyn,
This looks fabulous !! Amazing what a coat or 2 or 3 of white paint will do !! Looks wonderful !! can't wait to see the cushions you make for her !!

Thanks for stopping by, and your sweet words .. sooo very sweet of you !! Memorial Day is when we in America recognize and honor all who have fought, and served in our Country !! The men are all honored and grave sites are soo decorated !! It's an amazing recognition to them and for them !! I'm sure you have a certain day for this as well .. They desserve more than one day .. But, it indeed is very touching ..

Hoping your week-end is a lovely one, and pray that the sun will shine :)
