Good Saturday morning.
The rains of yesterday have blown out, it's a real 'Fallish' morning......
damp, grey, with leaves starting to pile up here and there,
but some sunshine promised for later, then the trees will
be more colorful hopefully.
Today will be another busy one......first an early stop at
SuzAnna's Antiques to take granddaughter to work, and you
just know I'll be looking around the shop.
The armoire is finished and standing empty, must work
on re-stocking with contents of several boxes of decorating
books, English china, French linens, Scotch whiskey,
Grand Marnier, Spanish sherry........crystal glasses
and decanters..........you get the picture.
The lower region is 'the bar', doors kept closed,
the upper - the pretty part for all to see.
I'm really pleased with the way it turned out.
I found the waxing part somewhat harder and more
time-consuming than the painting.......
but it's the waxed finish which brings out the beauty,
protects the paint, and gives a large piece like

chains or marring with screwdrivers.......was not

Now I have several other painting projects in mind.
How about you? Anything planned requiring a pot of paint,
a brush, and a few spare
