The Bank Holiday weekend is all about tractors and chairs for us, oh and a bit of tidying and sorting out around the place.
Lovely Hubby replaced the windscreen on the second love of his life yesterday, it had shattered into a hundred pieces, a mixture of age and the heat, so now it is resplendent with a brand new windscreen.
He also put new decals in place after it's paint job and it looks all smart and fully dressed again. For those tractors enthusiasts out there (Jane!!) it is a John Deere 3130 with a 'designed by LH' hydraulic system now in place, a very useful big boys toy!!
While he was tinkering with his toy I was beginning the renovation of Jessie's chairs. They are sturdy dining chairs that we inherited from my lovely Mum in laws house and although are in good condition do not fit in with our style at all, so I am going to help them to fit in just a little bit better.
First job pop out all the seat pads, then sand down the frames and undercoat. Then they will be painted with two coats of our favourite colour. I'll post the 'after' pictures when they are done, I am concentrating on two at a time, as LH was actually using one all day yesterday to give him a leg up to climb on the tractor., our jobs usually overlap nicely when we work together.
I was out taking the photos first thing this morning after getting the chickens up and look who ran over to greet me, the dogs were still snoozing in bed (they are not morning dogs!!).
Take my picture Mum he seemed to be saying..... so I did!!
Hope your weekend is everything you want it to be, whether that be a lazy time off work weekend or a busy, get jobs done kind of a weekend. I do so hope we have just a little bit of sunshine....fingers crossed, nope better not do that........ I won't be able to hold my brush!
