A DAY IN THE LIFE OF AN ORGANIZER


This is more like the last three weeks of my life.  I needed a change in my home; and after looking at most of my furniture options, I decided that my kitchen table was what I wanted to change the most.  I wouldn't mind an entirely new table, after all, it would have been much more easy breezy.  But money is tight and my skills are available, so I dove in and tackled the project.  

It was quite the challenge finding the time to sand, stain, and put three coats of clear finish on the table and six chairs.  I took full advantage of my son's nap times.  I also strapped him into the stroller with snacks when he would tolerate it.  And then at times I would let him play on the deck (which is like a giant play pen).  That was glorious!  To say the least a project that should have technically taken me one week took me three.  

Here are the before and after pictures:
Enjoy!

Now on to a little...or a lot... of sewing!  In my house, there is always a project to be done!
