I love when I have some time to spare—which isn't that often—to attempt a weekend project. Most of my weekend projects involves color in some way and most often in paint. This past weekend was one of those rare moments when I was caught up with my design projects and paperwork so I decided to paint these two kitchen chairs [below].
Notice the sanded edges on the seat and back of the chair. I wanted to give them an aged look to complement my collection of antique accessories and crocks.Click here to view the before photos. It's amazing what a little paint can do!

Remember when I posted about our new gardening shed and raised beds in May. This is how it looked one year ago when it first went in. [below]
We have now entered phase 2 and this is how it looks now. [below]
We finally finished landscaping around the shed, keeping it simple and informal and using rocks from our yard.
The paths are completed around the raised beds and stepping stones were added in front of the flower bed on the side.
Our raised beds did great this summer so we plan to add two more next spring. That means more veggies for us and moving onto phase 3!
