Daddy Projects

We love having our daddy home. This has been a very productive week in the way of cleaning and projects around the house, and I certainly appreciate the added help.  He has a way of bringing out the best in the kids in terms of work ethic and motivation.  Here they are scrubbing the kitchen cabinets:
The kids repainting the patio chair:
Refinished toy box from 5 years ago.  We used to have it a light pine color with the kids' hand prints on it.  At first I was a little nervous when I heard that he had painted over it, but I really like the distressed satin espresso finish.  It matches our living room better.
He built this adirondack chair a couple of years ago, and now we have a matching one, along with a patio table.  I love the set.
As I write there are more projects underway: refinishing the T.V. stand to match the toy box, scrubbing and re-touching parts of the walls, and possibly re-staining the cubby shelf in the dining room (formerly known as the homeschool supply shelf.)  I love that the beautiful spring weather makes all of this possible. :)
