Spring project

A few weeks ago I ordered a craft table from Home Decorator's, it arrived last week and I began to assemble it.  I did it in the garage to keep the mess down there.......here is the basic frame put together.  The drawers were really hard to do and the slides too!!!



My sweet nephew had to come over and help carry it upstairs to my studio......the top was so heavy and it took the two of us to put it on the base and then the two of us to finish up the assembly.....what  a job this turned out to be!!!  But I am so glad I have it now, it is heavy and sturdy.  For years now I've been sewing on a folding table that was wobbley and had no drawers.......tomorrow I'll get some pics of the finished product.........

On a warmer note.......Spring has arrived!!!  My pear tree is in full bloom, and the white violets have left the flower beds and have taken over the side yard.........they are like little fairies dancing in the breeze!!!






 Silly violets!!!!  Ignore that flower bed, that's work for another day!!!

Hope Spring has arrived by you and you are enjoying yourself........

I have a love hate relationship with furniture, especially heavy pieces! I love my furniture dolly, it really helps with moving big items inside and outside! I highly recommend grabbing one the next time you see one at a garage sale or a junk store/pawn shop....etc...And I love your pear tree, what a pretty view!

Good Morning Cleo,Your view from your window is awesome. Furniture can always turn out heavier then we think, but you had help to get it where you wanted it. I am anxious to see your finished pictures. Sometimes our work tables aren't always where we would like them to be, but we manage. Some of the flowers have not with stood the cold. I am glad that I have held off buying any flowers. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri friend.

I suppose Spring arrived here, but it has left again. Georgia, with temps in the 40s and rain! Cold, miserable rain. Sunshine would be so wonderful. I'm hopeful that we will get warmer weather soon. Your table looks like it will be great in your studio. Can't wait to see the finished product! Have a great week!

Are those Bradford Pear trees?
Worst odor in the world. Like rotten meat. Or do you keep the windows closed while they are blooming? Or are they another variety of pear.
Love your new work table. Great color too. Well done.
