Weekend Project: Bench

This is a rocking bench that I found at the flea market. I paid $30 for it, which is more than I wanted to pay, but you have to know how I love to rock.

I took this:

and after a little sanding, priming, and painting, it looks like this:

I am desperately trying to get my house in order and decorated to my satisfaction. The only major issue that I am having, you know, besides money, is the dining room. Still cannot come up with what I want to do in there. It may just have to wait until I can get a new dining table and chairs. I've got my eyes and ears open for the right one, and I'll know it when I see it. I just don't want to open the wallet too far. I think I just need to start yardsaling, looking for the missing pieces of the puzzle.

Well, spring break is over and we are off to work and school again today. Today will probably be one of the worst days of the year. One of my students was killed last Tuesday night in a car wreck, and I can imagine this is going to be especially hard today.

Thanks for being patient with me, as I excitedly wait for the end of this school year and semester at AUM. After May 5, much pressure will be relieved.

I still wish I had gotten the rocking chair to put on my front porch....
