Paul has been working hard on the old pine dresser. The red chalk paint covers the old varnished pine really well and dries very quickly. Here are some photos of progress so far.

While Paul was busy painting I went outside and dug up the first potatoes of the season, they were absolutely divine. I adore new potatoes.
