Marble top table Completed

If you have been following along with the last few posts, you have watched the plain wood table top transform into marble. The paint has dried and the side table is now in place at the foot of the stairway. I am very happy with the results.

We have had a busy weekend with graduation parties and working around the house. This is our 4th Summer with our garden. We created this landscape out of a muddy empty space. There were only a few mature trees on the lot. This year we added pea gravel to the garden walkways to create that old fashion feel. After adding 96 bags of gravel , we can now relax and tend to the garden.


Our former home of 20 years had a much larger lot. One of the reasons we chose this one, was it was a smaller lot and required less maintenance. We loved our gardens, both veggie and floral. We also had fruit trees and berry bushes in our former home. This garden also incorporated both items, but in different ways. We espaliered 8 fruit trees creating an arbor to fit the smaller area. The results have been fantastic as far as fruit production.

The fruit trees are just bursting with fruit after 3 years. I guess some of the old gardening methods d0 work well and look beautiful too !

Until next time...


  1. Sorry Debra, I've been so busy sewing over the weekend that I didn't get a chance to catch up on blogs. Wow, your table is fantastic! You are a master of the technique. I'm fascinated to know about the table base - is it a fire screen? I didn't realise your garden is so young. I thought it was much more established. I adore espaliered fruit trees and your covered arch is so romantic. Do you open it to the public at all? You should also think about running craft classes from home especially in such a beautiful setting. Ann :)
