Cooking Up Art website

I’ve been lax on my posting lately. I have been busily working on my
plethora of projects and completely ignoring the computer. If I were to
offer an excuse, it might be that the clouds have parted and the big,
bright orb is shining in the sky. Here in the Pacific Northwest, it’s
an event and I’m virtually sun-drunk with the joy of it.

What have I been doing? Quite a lot, actually. Today, I’ll share my
bistro table project. You’ll remember I had finished the two deciduous
trees in the mural room, and I’ve been thinking about what I’d like to
add for furnishings. I’d like to keep it simple, open and airy. I don’t
want to cover up all those beautiful trees I painted, and I want to
keep the floor uncluttered for yoga and setting up a table for a
temporary project, if the need arises. I also want to use it as a guest
room. I’ve found a small couch that converts to a bed, I added a small
plant stand for a lamp and I wanted a little bistro table sized
perfectly to hold an intimate tea for two during the winter.

I searched around and didn’t find any kind of table I liked, so I built
one using a base I had stored in the shed and a pre-cut plywood round
top. I sanded, stained, sanded, stained, sanded, stained, sealed,
sanded, sealed, sanded… you get the picture. Then I assembled it and
brought it into the room. Now I have a perfectly sized, sturdy little
table to hold tea, a nibbly bit and plenty of atmosphere.

Breathe deeply,
Laugh with abandon,
Love wholly,
Eat well.
