on my jog today- with my arms full of seed pods and dead weeds- someone told me i looked like a harbinger of fall. that was much nicer than what they could have called me (i'm not a pretty jogger) with my bed head and pink sweatshirt you could easily think i'm crazy if you saw me.
but i am just in love with the way plants look this time of year. before they are crushed by snow and ice. after all the foliage has fallen. this is some serious inspiration for the months ahead.
i really wish i had taken a before of this next picture. i retrieved it from a dumpster full of old barn debris.
it's well over a hundred years old, and it's rough finish just needed a little tweaking. making the drawers open and close smoothly was another matter....
i also added a new poplar top because this is a custom piece and it needed to go in front of an electric baseboard. the new top allows it to push right up to the wall and also gives a nice clean surface so it can be used in their kitchen.
i don't normally post pics of my smaller work, but since i'll be focusing on knobs and jewelry and coasters and key hooks for twist, i won't have anything to show next week if i don't! so here's a pic of some new knobs.... and there are LOTS more to come.
