Walking in a winter wonderland!

The end result of a rather crazy winter storm. I think we ended up with about 16 inches of snow. The entire state was about shut down yesterday! Today is still cold but the sun is shining and this is what is I see from my driveway. Look closely at the roof and you can see some rather large icicles! Now, the next picture is not pretty at all. But it is keeping me busy today!

This chest sits at the end of our bed. My husband gave it to me for Christmas in 1984. It was a deep brown back then. It has since been painted white, mustard and now blue/green. The fabric is new, too. I have been putting off finishing this for awhile. It needs another coat of paint or two. Hopefully it will be finished tomorrow. Sorry for posting such a ugly picture, but it had to be done. Maybe I will finish it now that I have posted it!

Thanks for visiting!

Your house looks beautiful covered with snow! I can't wait to see the chest when you're finished.

Yikes, that's a lot of snow! I don't think I'd be wanting to venture out. Looking forward to seeing your bench all finished!

16 inches!! Oh my goodness...I can't even imagine that! I did notice the icicles...cool! Look forward to seeing your chest finished. I have an old table I want to paint, but everyone tells me "no"! So, I guess I'll have to find another project. :-)

That's a lovely photo of your home. The yellow paint looks as pretty in the winter as it did last fall.
