Im finally out of school and on summer break which gives me tons of time for junking and working on projects! I picked this up yesterday at a thrift store on 30% off day! Again, my husband was NOT impressed...
This is it after a quick sanding and some Howards wood refurbisher. It goes into my space tomorrow!
This is the last of my shovel art for the moment - Im out of shovels! Finished this one last night...it used to be for cleaning horse stalls! Im thinking it likes this job much better!
Another of my finds. I havent decided exactly what to do with it yet...Ill post when its done!

School is out and junking is in! I've been SO busy these last few months that there hasn't been much time for fun, but there IS NOW!! I filled my truck yesterday with great stuff so let the good times begin!

That's so funny about the gutter guards also...we do have great minds, don't we? I love to skim the aisles at Home Depot and let my imagination take over!

Have a great day,

Your table turned out great....silly husbands.

Can't afford to COMPLETELY retire. Love the table ~ gorgeous. Shovel is way cool and can't wait to see what the cabinet becomes ~ I see kitchen island..... Enjoy your time off.
