Fishing, before & after photos

I've mentioned Walnut Point State Park practically situated in our back yard. Stephen loves to take the boys fishing there & Evelyn and I love to walk the trails and play at the park..We all went last Sunday and just enjoyed being out in nature together. 

Okay, now, I'm just gonna go up this ramp, down these stairs and then circle back around again. and again. and again.

Big brother Will helps Max 'release' his bluegill.

Max is becoming quite the angler.  He caught 5 fish this day. I'm so proud.

And here are some before & after photos of just a couple of projects I've been working on.  I've always got several projects lined up but I am trying to share these with you more!
If you are a local reader, all of these items are for sale in my shop. :)

circa 1940's metal kitchen cabinet before
And after.  It was filthy & rusty in areas.  I scrubbed, sanded, & painted it into an awesome looking display piece.
These bentwood "Eames" style chairs came from the Uof I dorms.  They were in rough shape so I decided to paint them..

And after:in a bright cheery red that looks awesome paired with this oval yellow top chrome table. The curves of the chair's arms complement the shape of the table as well.  And, there are still 2 chairs left unpainted for those "leary" over the red paint. 

Evelyn just loves "helping" herself to our corner snack, bread, breakfast cabinet.  We can not keep her out of it. She usually goes for the giant marshmellows for smores fixins'.  She is so fast & sneaky and here she has found mommy's tortilla chips, ran to the couch with them and is sharing them with Max.  It was so funny & cute I couldn't "scold" her and had to get a pic! :)
