At yesterday's link party, I promised to share one more feature. This one comes with a little story I wanted to share about one of my favorite blog friends who just happens to live in my little corner of the world!
Megan from Our Pinteresting Family linked up this awesome table (it's huge) and set of four chairs that she found on Craigslist. All the pieces are solid oak and had been used at a local church for their Sunday school classes for many years.
As soon as Megan got home, her husband Rob went straight to work sanding and staining the top of the table, then painting and glazing the bottom. The entire project was finished and posted on their blog within 24 hours! It's beautiful and gosh they work really fast!
Now I just happen to know that because Megan was sweet enough to let me know about the Craigslist ad. Megan remembered the little chairs I painted and personalized for a client in December. The chairs were a Christmas gift for my client's grandchildren. You can read the entire post here.
Megan thought I might want a few more chairs for upcoming tag sales. What Megan didn't know was that the personalized chairs were a big hit and I've already had requests for more. So Megan bought her table and chairs on a Saturday morning and I bought all the rest a few minutes later! And yes, there's a table in there too!
Megan and Rob did a beautiful job on the their table. And if you haven't already visited Our Pinteresting Family, head right over and say hello. As the name suggests, it's a family affair and many of their projects are Pinterest inspired. They are super creative and thrifty too!
Thanks so much Megan! It's really nice to have friends out there!
And if you're interested in a personalized chair, just let me know.
Thanks to Megan, I now have a few!
