Thursday thoughts...

Due to my recent illness, I've missed a couple of weeks of furniture refinishing, and I'm in withdrawal.  I really try not to do this at home, it's so messy, and as you know I don't like to clean.  So, I thought I'd just look at a few pictures. I to love see the different layers of paint on an old piece. 
stripped!
You know I only get this way when I start to clean, and move things around.  I'm afraid my eldest has inherited this "moving around" gene.  His girlfriend says everytime she comes over the room is in a different  arrangement.  I told her it's a sign of instability, he could go Viking on anyone, anytime.  I figure if she was just messin' around, she'd have left him by now, so maybe she's willing to stick it out.  I think I like her.

I wish I was crafty like you. My mom and 3 sisters had the gene, but not me. Maybe I need to find a project and try it, I might like it.

I used to move the living room furniture around ever so often. I haven't in about 4 years, even though I want to.

LOL, I don't like to rearrange the furniture at all. I would trip over everything! I'm glad you are feeling good enough to start the refinishing project again.

Isn't it funny what clues us into this one just could be the one! I love to rearrange, but it drives my hubby crazy so I try to limit it.
