Places– of Charm

Besides being a national holiday to honor those who gave their lives for our country, Memorial Day is the start of picnics with family and friends, summer grilling, and white shoes.  Isn’t there something nostalgic about wooden picnic tables?  Our artistic daughter Janice promised to help me sand, stain, varnish and decorate one with stencils and paint.  Mostly the grain of the wood will show through.  I’m excited about our project, but I’m putting control in the hands of Miss Bossy Pants.  (Janice just emailed me with the polka dot table idea below).

  1. Hey Janessa, she’s had good luck with roller-type stencils. Simple is good. There are some amazing Frank Lloyd Wright stencils available, but that would be hard work. We just want to embellish our picnic table.
