Extreme Makeover - Chair Edition
I am a sucker for makeovers. Don't you just love seeing before and afters? I am terrible at always capturing the befores... Maybe because I am so impatient and want to just start the beautification process!! We thought you might enjoy seeing these old 1880's solid oak chairs transformed. Julie had told me about a set of chairs she found at the Silvana Mercantile. There were definitely a diamond in the rough. She saw the possibilities...

Here are the chairs before.....
And here they are now....

Enjoy your day. See you soon.

Supporting The Camano Island Library

Recently our Landlord Myron asked Julie and I to paint a potting bench he made to be donated to an upcoming auction to support the Camano Island Library. The Friends of the Library need to raise $20,000 each year to keep the library open.
The Auction will be held on Saturday, March 20th, 2010 from 5pm-9:30pm.
You can find more information about the auction HERE

Here is the finished product! Myron came to pick it up yesterday. He used peg board on each side of the old barn window, and added hooks to hand garden tools.

The bench is even complete with a GARDEN pale! We think it turned out pretty cute. Get your tickets for the Auction Today! This darling potting bench can be yours.
For more information on the Camano Islands Library click HERE
It is located at Terry's Corner on Camano at 848 N. Sunrise Blvd.
Phone: (360)387-5150

See you soon! -Marybeth & Julie
