We searched for someone to help repair the backside of the hutch so the piece would stand square. Then I sanded it down. The inside that is painted ivory was so stained from whatever had been set on the shelves, that I sealed the shelves with primer and painted the inside. The exterior got several coats of satin polyurethane.
I love keeping my collection of glassware and serving pieces on the shelves. The cat's favorite napping spot is up on top on the quilts. It was such a hunk of junk when we hauled it home and I think it was a great rescue of an antique.
Tuesday, I was in a baking mood with the snow falling and it was cold outside. I talked about baking cookies. Well last night I finally got back to finish baking the cookies I had mixed up.
The quiches and the meatloaf I baked that night were a big hit with the family.
Yours in quilting,
