These pictures were taken last September when we went to Home Depot. The first pictures are RC riding the grocery cart. The last picture is me trying to refinish our dining table. Somehow parts of the plastic cover I placed on top of our table caused some damage to the original finish. This is not a big task compared to what we see on HGTV and DIY network, but it wasn't easy. First, we had to use stain remover so we can scrape the table, and it stinks. I was ready, I had gloves and mask on.
When I do things like this, I miss living in the Philippines. It is easy to find someone to repair things there and they don't cost a fortune. When I went there, I had custom made furniture covers (12 pieces) for only $60 including materials. I'm sure many Filipinos can relate to this.
