THIS OLD GIRL LOOKS GOOD ENOUGH TO STILL WORK THE FARM!
Hi there so happy you could join me here at Sweet Tea N' Salty Air today! Hope you are enjoying the start of Fall. Just the word Fall puts Apples, leaves, pumpkins and rosy cheeks in my thoughts. I have been switching things around to prepare for the very busy holidays that will soon be upon us. I have been creating more work spaces for baking and cooking prep etc. So as I have done in the past turned the dining room into a "butlers type pantry and adding the dining table to the end of a very large living area. By doing that I have added 2 more prep areas that they could also double as added eating areas as well. I host Thanksgiving, Christmas, cookie parties etc. for quite a bit of friends and family. In the butlers pantry I added a very old friend , you may have seen her before in a past post.....
The last time you may have seen this old girl she was a light ginger color with a bird stencil.
Now she is bold with her faux wooden farmhouse look that I achieved using a wood rocker and a dark paint top coat.
This old girl has worked the farm field most of her life, she was always there rain or sun waiting for the woman in the family to come and pinch the ends of the stringbeans off. That is how she got her nick name "Stringbean table".
I gave her a very light coat of vanilla cream and let all her imperfections show as if she were doing a star!
This old table is a great place for food prep cookie frosting etc....
She has been paired up with a brown bench
Thanks so much for stopping in today, bye until next time!

Welcome...hope I find everyone enjoying everything Fall has to offer...as I see it I think that it may be everyones very favorite season. Here in Florida we have no changing leaves or Acorns but we do have some magnificent pinecones and a recent discovery of The Florida paper tree. My daughter and her friends went to the woods to gather some wood for the outdoor fire pit and as I was passing the wagon of cut logs I noticed they resembled birch tree a bit so I went and checked it out better. One of the logs was peeling apart oh I thought this is very cool so I grabbed a few logs and brought them on in the house I peeled one apart.
I thought I would try a couple of things first I covered a old floor board entirely. I used wood glue.
So I crafted this lodge sign just using some stencils and paint and attached these two?, sorry they look like a type of pine cone they were interesting so I gathered some.
Then I thought I would peel off some big enough pieces to wrap around just a typica…
Hello there......looking for a wonderful inexpensive Holiday Craft?? I have just the thing to gather the whole family around the table, serve a little hot cocoa and some cookies and it's a party! This is all you will need to get this party started......
Some basic white paper, scissors, glitter and some glue. The glue you will want to paint the finished snowflakes with but we did add a little water to it. I am so a magazine saver, this is an old one "Martha Stewart Kids", If you follow the numbered steps and besure to get a good fold the results areendless.
It is true no two snowflakes are a like! Once you get a "shovel" full its time to bring them to the glitter box, just a shallow box to sprinkle glitter, before that just a couple brushes of glue which we did in a different box then the glitter.
This is just one cut but once you follow steps 1-5 you can make your own cuts !
Little miss smarty pants which is my oldest daughter decided to show off with he…
