A Sneak Peak...

I'm switching things up a bit.  

I'm still working on my "wardrobe", but I have a new focus project right now.

Here's a sneak peak at the latest challenge I have taken on...

When we sold our home {moved} I was fed up {bored}with most of our old furniture, so I sold most of it.  

Buying the pieces that I am absolutely in love with {1} don't fit or work in the space we are in right now, and {2} mostly aren't in my budget right now.  

When we moved into our current home we were given {free} a set of end tables and coffee tables from an acquaintance.  I welcomed the pieces unseen via verbal description... {ummm}...the description wasn't quite accurate.  No big deal!  

When my husband went to pick the table set up he texted me before arriving home saying "I'm pretty sure you're going to be painting these". Oh, he knows me too well!

Sadly, six months later I am just getting around to working on the coffee table.

So, for the last couple days I have been armed with an idea in my head, sandpaper, paint, and more paint.

I hope this turns out!  There's always more ideas and more paint should I not like it...right?


  1. Thanks for commenting on my blog. I hope you are able to get some mommy time, too! It has literally been about 9 years since I had the house to myself and didn't have to leave!
    I love this table and look forward to seeing what you do with it. We have one almost exactly like it that we bought off Craigslist for $25 but it just has one sheet of glass. God bless!

  2. I'm a new blog follower stopping by! Thanks for commenting on my blog as well. I love this project, it looks so great! I will be coming over soon to check out some more!
