Happy Feet

It rained hard today but the boys didn't let it stop their outdoor play. I have one specific childhood memory of playing in the rain. We laid in streams of rain water rushing down the sides of our little dead end street til we were soak through. I realized recently that playing in the rain is one of those things you unknowingly stop doing some time along the road to becoming a grownup. But kids know it's good for you.

Thankfully I was able to finish up this table makeover before the deluge came. I picked up this coffee table a few weeks ago for $6.
A little peeling, cleaning, and sanding. Then a couple coats of semi-gloss black. I drew the bird and branch graphic in Illustrator and printed it onto card stock to make a stencil.
It's weekend time! I hope yours is a good one!
