Some time ago Shari gave me the assignment to redo our kitchen table. This is what it looked like, plain, ordinary, basic table. It had scratches and dings, chipped enamel, and green legs. We wanted something with more flare. So I through out a couple ideas, and Shari bought in. Unfortunately then I was committed. Here it is before....

So I worked on it for almost a week, then we left to the canal for a family reunion on Shari's' side. When we got home we moved it back in from the garage, and had our first meal. Alex ate with a screwdriver, 

Meagan was the waitress, 

and Shari gave the toast.
And here it is.., our new improved kitchen table!!!!

Around the edge it says, "There is beauty all around when there's love at home. There is joy in every sound when there's love at home."

It makes me so proud that my children have such hidden talents. Arts and crafts comes from the Stoller side, ya know! I love it too Aaron what a great idea. Nice family picture.

I made stencils by hand, I was afraid I would start out good only to slowly fade into sloppy penmanship. The stencils slowly disintegrated as I painted, so much for paper and masking tape, but I was able to finish it alright.

Aaron, Paige (Lim) Knighton here. My mom told me about Lydia's blog, which led me to yours. It's fun to see what you're up to. Check ours out and get to know our family!
