Cedar Chest

I've been looking on craigslist for a cedar chest...I saw one that I thought would be what I wanted..but I decided to wait. One day when I was with Elaine we were in Tuesday Morning and I saw how much new chests go for....with her encouraging me I called about the one I saw...looked at it and Elaine got $10 off so it was mine.

I wanted to try chalk paint...I made my own from plaster of paris and sands down smooth and then I dry brushed with white, distressed it some and then finished it off with was.

Now I have a little more storage in my room.

And to top all of this off ALL the boxes are put in their place and the garage can now be used for what Chris needs it for!!!

from this

to this

and finished!

heading home

Janna was able to go with us to Nebraska for Lance's funeral....we were all very glad to be able to go..feel such a loss but can have comfort in a faithful life....

We left after breakfast on Wednesday morning...we went to Kenny's and some got together and made breakfast.

It worked out to be in Sioux Falls when Laura was done with school....we got to see where she lives and then she and her room mate came to Chili's for dinner/supper with us.

We took Janna home..visited the kitties and saw all the pumpkins and bought a few home for decoration. Janna also taught Alicia and I the technique of using freezer paper and painting on cloth or burlap.

After leaving Janna's we went on the Sibley Iowa to see Mom for a bit...she was still sitting in the day the boys were entertained by the birds while we visited.
