I heart 3 day weekends

I lurve a 3 day weekend!! Especially one in which the weather is nice enough that people are out selling their junk treasures!!  I made a few rounds this morning hoping to score a few pieces of furniture to paint.  Here is what I found.....
 I bought this already painted because I liked  it and the price was right. I added my own touches and it will be resold. (Skippy loves the camera and my furniture.)
 This is a very sweet bench/table.  It is getting a paint job this weekend.
This one has a twin and sorry to say they are going to be separated, as one has been sold.  This one is going to get an extreme makeover.
  The small black table just needed some minor changes.
I distressed the table a bit and added  chalkboard contact paper to the top. (side bar here: This was after a failed attempt at decoupaging the top with a super cute black and white damask print....insert frowny face here.. but just for a minute.)
                                                      So what do you think???................

Here is a blurry before picture of the owl trivet, too....
Now that I have a few more projects to do, I must get to work.....however,

Peace my friends!!! (disclaimer: Although I am a teacher, I reserve the right to misspell words, use as many exclamation marks as I want, and make major writing blunders as I see fit for the purpose of entertaining others as well as myself. Hey it is MY blog!!! Thank you and Amen.)
