Almost finished...

I feel like I'm sitting on a ton of projects that are *almost* finished. I just need to add one final touch and they'd be done. I'm measuring my progress by how many blog posts I've done, though, so to make myself feel better, I'll post on what we've been up to this week. Then we all know I'm not a total slacker...

A large part of our time has been spent on this big project, which should be assembled by today and finished by this weekend! (finishing is my favorite part)...But we kept getting interupted by this project...
Which Mr. Duck told me would be a pain, and difficult, but he let me say yes (because I always say yes...) because I said it wouldn't be too difficult.
Here is where it started...we're just supposed to be fixing the one leg, which meant cutting a new leg...but in the (difficult) process of attaching the new leg, the other front leg, which was already cracked, decided to REALLY crack, and we decided we couldn't send it back to them knowing the second leg would be breaking soon, so I'm going to make another front leg...as soon as I get my jig saw back from my sister in law...Guess I need to call them to update them on it since it's taking me a little longer then I'd predicted....

But now I know how to cut out pretty curvy legs! :)

And then there are projects like these...
That are sitting finished and ready to sell, except I need to replace one drawer slide, and it's a weird one that I had to order and I measured it wrong, so I need to re-order it so it will be another week before I can actually list it for sale.

I also painted a candlestick holder...it was cream and they want it silver, but the silver I started is very "glittery" looking and I was hoping for more of a "brushed nickle", so I think I may hit the store for a different spray paint....(anyone had any luck getting a bushed nickle? which paint did you use?)
