Chirp, Chirp, Chirp

Here's a quick project I completed a few weeks ago. Sometimes it takes me that long to get the camera out and get a good picture taken. I thought I would take advantage of the great weather and drag it outside. It's soooo much easier to get a good pic in natural light.

My plan was to paint the table red and be done with it. But once again I couldn't leave well enough alone and HAD to add something to the top.

This little birdie and curly branches added the right touch to this plain, square table. A little distressing adds a bit more interest.

I would love to know what this table was originally meant to be used for. It's taller than your usual nightstand and larger that your usual plant stand...but it will work for both. Very versatile :-)

I just had to throw in this picture. My little guy and I went to visit Grandma Murphy earlier this week. She turned 90 last September. 90!!!! Can you believe it? She has been such a wonderful influence and I thank God everyday for having such a great person in my life.

Here's the funny thing: we named our middle child "Murphy" after my grandparents. Well, my youngest, Tucker, cannot understand her being named Grandma Murphy, so he insists her name is Grandma cute it that? Gosh I love 4 year olds and 90 year olds! She just goes along with it. After 90 years she's now Grandma Tucker :-)

Have a great weekend...go play outside!!!
