During our week-long stay at the cottage, we did a few little projects. Some were planned (like refurbishing a rocking chair) and others weren't (rebuilding the dock after we tore if off with our boat. Uh huh. Seriously.)
So we'll focus on the chair.
Before, it was a totally-generic rocker from some big box store (I have to assume) and now it's a Mennonite's slate-blue wetdream. The natural crackling in spots was a happy accident. I think it looks a bit shiny and new, so on our next visit I plan on roughing it up a little, wearing its edges with a bit of sand paper, bashing it with some implements - You know, that kind of thing.
Whatever the case, it's a far cry from the snoozefest of a honey-coloured bore it used to be.
