I hope you visit me often because I will be adding new things as I get them done. If you love prim, you found the right blog. I will still be posting tutorials and I hope to hear from you soon. Here are a couple of prim tables hubby made. This is just a sample of what we have on my new blog, Yesterdays Gardens.

Hanging Chandelier

Hubby made this hanging chandelier for over the dinning room table. There is also a matching one for a island or over the kitchen sink. They are made from old funnels. If you have primitive or country decor, this is for you. Dinning room chandelier measures 10 x 48 with a 3 foot adjustable chain. Single hanging light measures Stem breaks down to three separate bars, 18 in, 12 in , 6 inch bar. Total of 3 foot for the bars. This way you can hang it on a tall ceiling or short and it does angle if needed for cathedral ceilings. Total measurement for the single light is 48 inches x 12. Don't you just love how he comes up with all these ideas? He is a keeper!

7 ft. Farm Table Update

Well I found out I did not like the Tung Oil by itself. It leaves the wood kind of rough. It would not be good when you needed to wipe it off or dust. I decided to put a couple of coats of satin minwax polyurethane  on it. This way it protects from spills but is smoother to touch and not too shiny. Prim things are not shiny so I hate it when things shine. Just my opinion. Here is the last photo. Hubby made two benches to go with it. I prefer a bench on one side and chairs on the other.
