New Dining Chairs

We've been searching for new dining chairs for a while but hadn't found anything that we've liked.  I'm not a fan of matchy matchy furniture.  Greg stopped by the new liquidation store in Washington and found a wooden chair for $15 and brought it home. I thought it was perfect. So we visited the store later that night and found four more we liked.  We'd like to have a few more chairs but we'll wait until we find more we like.

We can only be so lucky if these last 30 years like the ones we replaced.

Tennis, Football and Productivity

A rather productive weekend...despite a bit of couch time watching US Open Tennis and NFL.  My tennis season comes to an end while Greg's football season kicks off.

Staining before Swinging

 Greg spent part of the long weekend working on our new swing. He was busy cutting out the pieces to build a stand.  Then he stained and polyurethaned the stand pieces and the swing.  He's hoping to get the swing stand put together yet this week.  Fall weather is perfect for swinging.
