Wordful Wednesdays

Today's Wordful Wednesday post is my kitchen table redo.??
I had this great old solid oak table that I bought for $20 bucks with 4 chairs in 1998 when I moved out after high school. Needless to say the poor thing needed something. So I decided to paint it charcoal. Why? Just because. Anyway so I was at Walmart and decided to look over at the mistints and I found my perfect shade of charcoal. It was a gallon of porch and floor satin charcoal.....for $5.50! So I brought it home and used my five year old as free labor to help sand away the very old poly. Then it was paint time!!

I have also had this little hen about that long and even though I'm not into chickens anymore I can't seem to part with her.

On another note........my dog Buddy, found a baby bunny in my yard this morning and was caring for it when my Granny noticed what was going on... he was licking it and trying to see about it. He is part beagle and part basset hound but I don't think he knows it because he never bothers anything. I forgot to take a picture of it!!! I was so frustrated with myself when I realized! It was smaller than my hand... I kept it in a shoe box for a couple hours then took it outside and it hopped out of the box and went right back where it came from! I was a little sad and a little relieved when it hopped away. I didn't have time to take care of it, anyway. But it was so cute! I just wish I would have taken a picture! :(
