I've started a new project...amongst all the others :-)
In the early 1960's or so my beloved Grandpa John Rule built a most beautiful picnic table for my precious Grandma Mary.
They lived on the shores of Loon Lake here in Eastern Washington..
Aptly named for the Loons that are its permanent residents..
...such a beautiful place that had been created over the years by the two of them.
They were both so incredibly talented, could do anything...
It was a most wonderful place to spend a childhood..
I loved the company of my Grandma and Grandpa..
I loved the lake..
So many pieces of time embedded forever in my memory..
I have diverted, of course...its ME... :-)
As I was saying, I have begun a new project...
I was fortunate enough when my Grandma passed on several years ago, to inherit the wonderful picnic table that my Grandpa had so lovingly built...
It has served many purposes over the years as it did when spending time with them at the lake...
So many gatherings, so many meals eaten on this table...so many family moments shared together at this table..
Well recently I decided that it was due some sprucing up...
When visiting my daughter recently I noticed that she had some leftover paint from painting her dining room...yes I know...its indoor paint..
However, with what I have planned I will be sealing it with an outdoor vanish when I am finished...
Right now I have only just started..
Here are the first pictures and one of what I have planned for the top...
I absolutely love this color...its by Behr and the name of it is
This is a picture of what I have planned for the top
Right now I just have the base coat on...I am going to put one more coat on and then start on the hearts...
Having just completed Christy Tomlinson's She Had 3 Hearts Workshop
I was totally inspired by the work I have done in the workshop...and the meaning behind
"She Had 3 Hearts"
I will post more pictures as I move along...
Thank you for taking a gander..
