We totally didn't get back to posting yesterday but we did actually work on some furniture projects!
|What the kids are doing around 8 am. Yes, he is. Lol, ew.|
Bree's getting her internet back later today so she can bore you to death instead of me. Haha. But really, our content is so much better when we are able to work together.

We hauled out a table and desk that Bree had picked up on the cheap.
On the table, we removed the legs and measured for where we wanted to cut and then we fired up the saw (for the first time, eeee). We tried some paint stripper first but then realized that we could just sand the heck out of the top. We also sanded the bottom of the legs to even them out a bit.
After a little more hand distressing the legs and apron, we wiped the whole thing down and applied a nice dark stain all over. We put about 3 coats of stain on the top. I think it needs another coat or two of stain to even out the edges and then we'll seal it up for the kids!
We'll be working on the desk again soon. I'm having one of those weeks where I don't think there's much going on but then there's something going on every day! :)
