Movin' Out

Guess what?  I'm not that great at house design.  I know, complete shock, given my half-ass projects and forced ideas just so I'll have something to write about.  So, this blog is going to close out.  No more updates from me.

I'll still be blogging on my personal blog over at The Alitary Blog and you're free to join me over there.  I will be posting regular life stuff, and on the rare occasion that I do something moderately creative or something I'm proud of, I'll post it. 

Thanks for reading!

Table Fix

As proud as I was about my dining room table I, of course, messed it up the first night we got it.  Celebrating five years of marriage with Lumbrusco, I got a drop of red deliciousness on the table, staining it slightly.

Out, damn'd spot!

Quick fix: sand, paint, lots more layers of shiny stuff to (hopefully) protect it against my clumsiness.  I sanded down the stained areas and put a thin layer of paint back on.  Let that dry, and put coat after coat of the clear stuff on.

PS: It's weird to see a closeup of your own hand

I did this in my front yard, but had to move the table in when we went to the grocery store because I was afraid someone would think it was out there because it was free and steal it.

This is not free.  Do not steal this table

Permanent fix:  Some type of plexiglass or something to go over it.  Not sure how it would affix on the table.  I don't want to make the edges higher than the middle, but other than some type of adhesive on the corners or edges, I'm kind of at a loss.  Ideas?  Suggestions?
