Happy March

Jillian here.  Today March 9 and a Saturday. Yay. This past week was crazy busy. Court for three days and one was an important trial and so I was very ready for the weekend.

I DID get to take part of the day off on Tuesday. I have a friend who lives in Indiana who is a charter bus driver. She brought a bus load of basketball players down near this area. She drives down and then hands the bus off to another driver as they are limited to the hours they can drive. She gets a rental car and so she visited a number of people she knows in the panhandle area. We took a ride out to our local lighthouse and had a seafood lunch. Lots of fun. And it was awesome to spend a few hours with her in a stress filled week.

Today, the husband and I went to an architectural salvage place about 50 miles from us (outside Mobile, Alabama). It’s very cool. I was looking for an old door to make a table from but eventually decided (they have 7 barns full of stuff) on a piece of iron to build the table around. It’ll be in the center. The guy there repurposes a lot of stuff into unique furniture and he had some he’d done with the wrought iron so I chose to go that route. I also got a small table to paint and add a chunk of granite that was left over from my new kitchen counters. It’ll be a side table. And I got a carved teak candleholder that weighs a ton. Here are some photos.

  1. Oooh, you have to post the tables when you get them finished. I’m intrigued. 🙂 And that lighthouse is awesome. I’m glad you got that respite from a hectic week. 🙂

    • I definitely will post them when done. And yep, it was nice to rejuvenate with a nice visit with my friend. It was briskly cold, but loved it.


  2. Wow, sounds like a really fun outing. Can’t wait to see the finished finds.

  3. Do you watch HGTV. I’m watching Flea Market Swap right now and it refurbishes flea market finds. Thought about you

  4. That sounds like such a fun outing, Jillian. I love to rummage around flea markets and car boot sales. Never know what you’ll find. Would love to see your finished side table 🙂

    • thanks Faye. I love to do that, too.  I’ve got a ways to go on the table. Haven’t decided on a color yet …and need some sandpaper.  🙂
