Long Weekend Again!

Happy Birthday Jefferson Davis! Actually, his isn't his birthday until June 3rd, but the State of Alabama celebrates the first Monday in June and I get the day off work. So again I say, Happy Birthday Jeff Davis, and thanks for the long weekend.

I had numerous projects planned for this weekend. Sad to say none had anything to do with sewing. The first project I tackled was our patio furniture. This was my Maw's patio furniture. It sat on her breezeway and then her screened in porch for many years. It had been well loved. When Maw moved it end up on my brother's back porch for 3 years without anyone even sitting in it. I got it when my brother decided to get rid of this set. Needless to say they had rust on them and not the best shape. Bo and I took them apart , sanded them down and repainted them.
This is how they look today. I LOVE the color, and these two rockers are super comfortable.

My mom bought me an umbrella, but I won't be able to use it in the table because there is no umbrella hole in the table. I'm going to try an umbrella stand beside the table and see if that works.
Now that I have it all finished it is way to hot to go outside. It was 91 today. I'll show you the rest of my projects later in the week.

Hey Blakely that furniture looks really nice, and yes it is comfortable.As for the unbrella you will just have to put it behind you to block the afternoon Sun.
