Before I get into what I've been up to, let me update you on Craig.  As I make this blog entry, Craig and Roy have arrived in Spokane, WA with their latest assignment.  It was a nice and easy ride north from Fontana, CA with little fanfare or anything of interest happening.  Heck, even the weather cooperated with them on this run.  We'll have to wait and see if the weekend dispatcher has anything lined up for them today, or if they will wait until morning for their next assignment.  I do know Craig wouldn't mind a few hours of free time to do some laundry.

Now, onto one of the latest projects for the store.  Thankfully, Cori had taken some before pictures so I can show you what it looked like before we went to town on it.  It's a basic plain table and chairs, with no extra detailing on it.  What's a girl to do but put a little bling on it.  A friend of Cori's husband had donated a box of old vintage door pulls, so we decided to put one on the back of each chair.  We also put one on each side of the apron of the table.  With a little staging, it went from plain jane to the belle of the ball.

Yesterday we spent some time working on a buffet using some metallic paint and on organizing our work area in the garage.  Then if that wasn't enough, we started in on a dress form which will find it's way into a boutique right next door to Serendipity 3 in New York City.  Here is is after we have applied some long forgotten sheet music we have found at thrift stores.  She still needs to get some extra added details, then some glazing, and she'll be ready for her trip across the country to her new home.  I can't wait to see how she turns out!

WOW! I love the transformation on the table and chairs. I just might have to come to the Farm Chicks show this year just to see all your great works.
