I have had a few projects on my list since we moved in.  Our "new to us" table and chairs need some work.  We were so excited to find a large table with a leaf in it on the side of the road...for free!  Now I am hitting up pinterest for fun ideas.  

I need to work on something fun for my Brynne-sized table and chairs as well.  I love the idea of chalkboard paint for that one, but we will see.  

My first completed project is my jewelry case.  This one is special to me because it was a present from my dad when I graduated from high school.  I have always been a jewelry junkie, and I loved that he thought of this idea.  It was oak, and I really wanted to make it match our bedroom a little better.  I just love the end product!

Camping Adventures

We have thoroughly enjoyed our first two camping trips here in Colorado.  Our first was with a few families from our church.  Our second we were able to meet up with Rob's brother and his family.  Besides one rainy night and one windy night, things went quite smoothly.
