Have a seat

Days have been great! A very successful trunk show, an invitation for another market in June, the o.k. to participate at another trunk show, an almost car free garage giving me enough space to finally paint my tables and some more small dressers and sideboards, enough of free time to do this all because I was able to get off on my job and yesterday I was able to visit a store that would like to host my stuff.... yeah! Time flies by, days are short, and this week is almost over.
The next market is coming up next Saturday and I'm almost sold out, so I will have to hurry up on getting off of my furniture (oh noooo!) and getting back to sewing purses and bags and knotting jewelry.

No question, I pushed myself a little over the top this week.
And since my first thought was to warm the muscles instead of cooling the sore nerve it got worse. So I'm sitting...well, I'm trying my bed reading through posts.

But luckily I prepared a little show off of a small stool I painted a while ago. Unfortunately I didn't take a before picture. It was painted in a reddish brown and the seat had the original color of hemp twine or straw.

I painted the legs in Annie Sloan "old violet" and used an almost dry brush with a little "old white" on the seat, sanded the you go.
Much love, Dina
