First step complete! Wow!

For those of you who doubted my mad skills, check this out. This is the top to my little table project after two coats of stripper, one mineral spirits bath, and 4 different grits of sand paper. (Please see previous blog post to see before picture) Isn't she a pretty little top?? I will now place this section of the table to the side and begin work on the bottom shelf. It is presently in the shop with its first coat of stripper eating away at three layers of paint. I will try and get it finished before the weekend is over, then it is on to those pesky little legs. Those things take a little more time, but it will all be worth it in the end!

Josh's dad used that mineral spirits to clean their newly laid wood floors. Never heard of it and now your talking about it! That always happens to me! :)
Very pretty!

BTW, Is it family reunion time yet?! I miss y'all!!!!
