I want to work on this today… I stripped the top and am ready to stain it, and I have a new color I’m dying to try. This dressing table used to be orange… and blue… and white. It’s about to get a new life!
But instead I’ll be washing dishes the old, old fashioned way: without running water.
The well pump is dying and we have the tiniest trickle of water… and a sink and dishwasher and counter full of dirty dishes. (I will NOT be sharing a picture of my kitchen right now!) Why did we keep using the dishes the last two days while they’ve been working on the problem? Wishful thinking, I guess.
I have some spare water stored that I can boil to make it hot. Who wants to hand wash in cold water? Now, how does one make soap bubbles without running water? Maybe I’ll google it. That’s what our forefathers would have done.
Ah, farmhouse joys.
