    NICE LITTLE JOB

    Customer brought these 3 items in. They were in barn fresh shape. I told her they will look very nice. The iron needed welding and were rusted. The desk and chair were painted an old oil base baby blue.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Nice work Dave.

    I had an older desk like that when I was little, always thought the round indentation in the top was a cup holder for my sippy cup.

    I've also still got a nice scar on my forehead from crawling around under it and rubbing on a sharp edge.

    Very nice Dave. Maybe one of these day I will be able to make it over your way for a few days to help you work on a piece or two.

    I agree Carol! Dave is the man! When the good Lord was handing out talent for this sort of stuff, Dave was at the front of the line!
