Paint Booth and Organized Workshop

Hello, all. 
I think I am back for some blogging.  School is out for the summer in our school district. I have spent the last two months substituting for a math teacher on maternity leave.  I'm happy to be able to sleep in. (Of course I still awake at 5:30 every morning and the sun is streaming in so it's difficult to get back to sleep.  I need blackout curtains!)

Now that we are moved in to our new house (rental) we have spent some time cleaning the garage.  The property we are on has ten acres, but Farmer John rents that so we don't have to deal with that, except for the dust when he plows.  
There is a four tractor farm garage on the property and we do have one section of that. We've turned it into a storage unit for our sons belongings (he is currently serving in Operation Enduring Freedom) and a workshop for me to refinish garage sale furniture.
Husband made a painting booth for me!

I finally got a chance to use the paint sprayer Husband gave me for Christmas!  I'll show that later when I get those black chairs finished. And the dining table they go with.

Here's a view down the length of the room.

Paint supplies on the right, Christmas in the middle, and yard care stuff on the left.  You can see our huge stack of used boxes in the back.  We saved those for the next move. We are only here for a year or two.

Stack of Son's belongings plus more furniture to refinish. 

Thanks for taking a quick look at our new digs.  I have been having fun painting chairs and a table and bedside tables.
