Memorial Day Project and Pics

Our Memorial Day was pretty laid back...  Just the way we like it.
Emmalyn watered our porch for us... It's growing so nicely ever since. ;)
Happy Memorial Day from one (and a half) of the Shields!

We had my parents over for a (very) last minute cook out and Mom brought s'mores

I decided to do a project in the morning that lasted most of the day.  I thought I had my "system" figured out with the first stool, but then something went wrong with the next stool.  You'd think by the third one I would have breezed through it, but I think that one took the longest.

Two of these cute little stools were from the family's cabin, and one I had bought at a garage sale a long time ago (to go with the two that were at the cabin).  They had definitely seen better days and the fabric was pretty tattered and stained.

I brought home quite a bit of lawn chair webbing from the cabin...  I could have sworn I saw some cute project on Pinterest using the webbing, but have yet to find it again.  Oh well, I found a good use for it anyway.  It's hard to tell from the pictures, but I also sanded down and stained the wood.

Perfect extra seating for outside gatherings! And they fold up and store so nicely :)
