Welcome to the 385th Metamorphosis Monday!
How was your weekend? Something very weird happened to me this weekend. I think I must have gotten a knock on the head. 😉
Remember the potting bench that I ordered recently?
I had planned to give it a few good coatings of this marine varnish.
It’s the same thing I used on this potting table that lives downstairs under my deck. (Directions for building this potting table can be found here: Build a Potting Table for Spring)
A few days ago I started assembling the table but stopped. I decided it would be better to paint the varnish on all the individual pieces first, and then put it together. That would be easier and I could really get the varnish everywhere it needed to go.
There are a lot of pieces to this table, love its design!
But this weekend I got a crazy idea.
I brought the table inside, it’s way too hot to work out on the porch during the daytime right now.
No, the porch is strictly a place for iced tea, lemonade and Mint Julep sipping right now, preferably under the soft breeze of two swirling ceiling fans.
But inside, crazy stuff is going on! The potting bench pieces are all white with primer.
And this crazy woman has bought a quart of Sherwin Williams paint. Look out! It’s about to get all Dahlia up in here!
Once I’m done painting, I’ll need to assemble the potting bench. Hope to share the results real soon!
