I am so happy I finished my bureau. It was given to me by my sister and her husband and I had been wanting to refinish it for awhile. It had a black stain on it and needed some love. The blue is Pour Down Blue by Benjamin Moore that was color matched at Lowes using Olympic One paint. I love the color! I replaced the top with a new piece of wood because the original piece was warped. I stained it and then did three coats of polyurethane. I found the knobs at Mardens for only $.49.

Today we did more work on the yard. 

I think we dug up enough slate to use for the new hearth. 

Peter dug up a large piece of granite for me. Think it was used for something based on the cut marks. 

We started leveling the walk way which soon will be brick. 

I found this in the yard today. Three marbles and rocks that I thought were cool.
