Ogden Marathon

Today I ran the Ogden Marathon. I would highly recommend it, it was absolutely beautiful. The first 24 miles were in the canyon, we ran along side a rushing river passed lakes, horses, went through tunnels and all the while it was extremely scenic the mountains and trees were beautiful and it was perfect weather! (The above pics at the half way point!)

My friend Mary ran the half! Here we are with cutie Angela post race!
The home stretch!

And it wouldn't be a marathon without battle wounds.........yikes!!!

Dresser Redo

I have had this old dresser forever so I decided to redo it so that I could have a cute dresser in my guest bedroom. First I sanded it and painted it white. Then.....

I sanded it and roughed it up. Adam cut lines in the front of the middle two drawers with a table saw to make it look like it had more than one drawer. It was very plain and I wanted to add something to make it not so boring. Then I put a glaze in the cracks and slightly across the entire surface to give it an aged look. I used Ralph Lauren Faux glaze in black. Then I added the hardware. Hardware is on sale at Hobby Lobby this week for 50% off! And TaDa! I know I go a little crazy on the sanding, and roughing up!
