Today I am sharing the end tables I have been working on this week.
My daughter, Jennifer found the end tables, they have been in the weather and were muddy. I cleaned the end tables up and painted them. My sheet rock is up in the family room, with a new sofa, in a flame stitch pattern, reminds of Navaho’s rugs,( decided I could not part with my large couch, it gets a black slip cover) I tried to decide what look I wanted in my family room, by starting with the couch and sofa. I have a Native American Indian collection in my bedroom, people always want to go into the bedroom, to see my collection. I have decided to bring it out into the open. This is a small taste of what is going on in my family room. I know everyone is showing their beautiful Christmas decorations. I have to get this room ready before I do any Christmas decorating. Now remember I am not an artist at painting, but I am pleased that I found I can do a sort folk art painting. I have two other furniture pieces that I have built from the wood off the walls of our Craftsman’s Bungalow, and hand painted, that will be coming into our family room. I will keep you up to date, as we get our family room together.

  3. Wow! You really transformed those tables! Great job. I’m glad you had “before” pictures, because I would have never believed they had started out like that. laurie

  4. This is my first visit to your blog. You did a great job with the tables. I really enjoyed your post about Mothers and Daughters.

  5. Dear Katherine,I came across your blog by reading Kellis blog. I would like to make a request for the wonderful recipe Almond Cinnamon Bread from your friend Hazel. I tried looking for it on the internet along with the recipe for the starter and so far I have not been successful. I would love to try this recipe as I have tried the Amish Friendship bread that requires a starter as well and is delicious!
    Blessings, Hope <><

  6. If you had not said, I would have guessed the pattern to be a way-long ago authentic design. The black is a very effective color for this. I would not have been so brave.

    Thank you for showing us.

  7. First off, I am so sorry about your husband. We had someone at church pray this morning for a man who had recently had some heart trouble. I wonder now, if that was your husband, as we don’t know anyone so I would not have known the name anyway. We are actually about 4 miles S. of Lena on Hwy. 13. So if you go to Lena via Hwy. 13 you pass right by my house. Also, we are surrounded by Watkins. So I am sure they are all somehow related. It’s funny what a small small world we live in. You will have to stop by sometime. If you need anything in regards to your husband being sick, please let us know.

    Oh, and your end tables are too cute. I love to paint. I just haven’t had a lot of time to do it lately.

  8. Hmmm, I don’t know what happened to my comment but I’ll start all over again. Please delete one if you find that this is a duplicate. You are very talented. The tables turned out really pretty! I love your tea set! I am also from MS (Natchez) Are we close? Thanks for your nice comment on Laurie’s blog about my dining room. You got me beat cause you have real live peacocks. I don’t think I can take care of them so I’ll just admire their beauty from decorative ones….Christine
