As you know, I usually post pictures of art that I have done. Today, I am proudly posting the pictures of art that my sweet husband has done.
Ta Da! He finished his studio workstation. You may remember the initial photograph that showed him out in the back yard starting on this project. Well, as you can see, he persevered. He designed, built, stained and polyurethaned the desk. I was really happy that he allowed me so much input, as this was his project, after all. I suggested the oak for the top, as well as the color of the stain. I gave him fine grit sandpaper and a tack cloth from my stash of supplies and I think I was even instrumental in him using foam brushes for the first time. He loved them.
While he was occupied with his desk, I had time to think of fun projects around the house. We had the perfect place in our dining room for a little reading nook. Yesterday I browsed around a bit on the World Wide Web and found a chair that reminded me of how much I like to rock. My Grandmother was a rocker and I always read and rocked when I was a teenager. I found one online that I liked, so we went to a local furniture store to see if they had something similar.
It's a rocker and a glider combo. There were some that were just back-to-front level gliders, that I liked, but this one, is an actual rocker on a fulcrum type mechanism, as well as a glider. It takes very little movement to get that rocking motion. It is so cozy and comfy, and it's my favorite shade of green. We found the perfect lamp at Home Depot and now, after making sure all my chores are done, I'm going to chill out and read for a while.
I made several really nice pieces of jewelry this week, but I'll save those for the next post. Hope everyone is having a great week so far. Remember, as always, stay creative and enjoy yourself and we'll talk soon.
