Mr. Sun Brings Excitement

Ooooh, gorgeous day, or what?  I hope all of you received as much invigorating sunshine as we did today.  A real outdoorsy day.

The excitement started as soon as I went out to the workshop — perfect weather to paint the primed units for my Project Table.  They’ll be dry tonight — I can move them into the house instead of back in the garage!!

They’re in the same ivory semi-gloss I’ve used for the kitchen & trim [SICO] & will co-ordinate wonderfully with the light oak of the wooden tabletop.

Okay, now I’m excited.  These units are the culmination of me trying to set up a work area to create stained glass windows in our ‘chilly’ environment.  The glass & tools are moved in — now the workbench will soon move in.  😀

I’d lost a little bit of enthusiasm for DIY over the last few days.  Life happens.  Rain comes.  Work on my headboard is stalled waiting for this table.

I love the look of ivory for trim & cabinets — especially if it has a bit of gloss to it.  White is nice & crisp when it’s new — too shabby after a bit of living.  In my experience, raising 3 active sons & mega-multiple dogs, ivory is a lot easier to keep clean & all the bumps & bruises of life blend in a lot nicer over time.

I’m quite ready to take a break from designing furniture — I need to design in glass.  And I need to turn that vision into a beautiful creation.

First a visit here tomorrow from my middle creation ;-), his lovely partner, & their beautiful, absolutely adorable, first creation.  😀

Simply A Dawne Thought
