Spring updating

In the garden, we'll have color in no time:
In the dining room, we've got some new sage/olive green walls and "re-newed" black distressed furniture:
This is a little WIP ("work in progress") that DH salvaged from a friend's shop (he was going to burn it - - oh the horror!). It was covered in dirt and old fuel oil cans. We've got a little more sanding to do before we put a light coat of stain and a little varnish on - - and it's good as new.
Quite the "sound & light" show last night with the house-shaking thunder & sharp lightning. Several waves of the spring storm came through all night long. Some waves of pouring rain, some with strong winds, and even a little hail. I think the farmers are chomping at the bit to get the fields dried out and get some planting done. I'm even getting a little impatient that I can't get the garden tilled (I should have peas & potatoes in by now!).
