Show and Tell Monday:

My sister-in-law and her family have been visiting for 10 days and will be here until the 16th. They stay at my in-laws house about 15 minutes from my house. Their three children and my two cannot get enough of each other. We pretty much spend every waking minute with them. The bond between cousins is just wonderful but it really cuts down on work time for me. I have had a chance to sneak away for a few hours here and there. I missed last week's show and tell and did not want to miss this weeks. I managed to get a few pieces painted. They are awaiting distressing but I thought I'd show them anyway. The two matching tables came out of an original beach cottage in my hometown. The little cabinet is actually a humidor, lined in copper. The two tier I got for a steal at a flea market. Thanks for visiting...

Francie of The Scented Cottage said...

Oh my, how far is it to your house from mine? LOL, you would find those pieces missing for sure!

Now I do have one of those dessert/pie tables and have been wondering if I had the nerve to paint it....

They are great pieces! I have two old tables that are in rough shape. I'm thinking of painting them. I can be a bit dangerous with paint though.


Patricia said...

Great pieces, that humidor is quite a piece.

I’m so glad that you get to spend some time with your family but as you say it’s hard to be working at the same time, I know of experience when we get company from back home, so much fun but…….
All the furniture looks great, can’t wait to see them when you are all done.
