A Vacation Project

 In about 3 hours, we had 16 shutters removed,
and rehung
on my brother-in-law's rental property.

Vacation Wrap-Up

 It was a beautiful day yesterday.  
There was a lawn to mow,
whirligigs to repair and repost,
 shutters to stain,
and a bench to repair in hopes of wringing one more season out of it.
 With these maintenance chores completed,
only today (Sunday) stands between our vacation and a fresh work week.

Moving On...

 After completing (and selling) the china cabinet above..
this book shelf is my next project.  
Rescued for a mere $5, I needed to replace a few boards
and mend some trim (above).
 Next I filled in the top with a piece of scrap wood.
I'm debating about whether to put a back on it
(and possibly legs)
before sanding and painting it...
