Aside from settling in, vacationing, having fun at our pool, I have been
PAINTING, PAINTING, PAINTING!
I have been inspired by various blogs to find things at Goodwill, garage sales, and things even in my own home to refurbish, repaint, or rework, whatever the case may be. I have taken small stock in spray paint as of late and every time I turn around I am outside spraying the stinky stuff over anything I get my hands on.
This particular piece of furniture was handpainted by me. I didn't use a lick of spray on it, but I'm sure I have projects to post about that have everything to do with Rustoleum, Krylon, or a K-Mart special.
My hubby and I purchased this drop leaf table years ago because I liked the antique look of it. Every time my friend, Barb, would see it, she would say, "You should refinish that table. It would be so pretty." I would defend it to the enth degree because I just liked having an antique piece of furniture.
Fast forward a few years, and I finally got the nerve.
I have been seeing robin's egg blue pieces everywhere, and accents of the same color in stores, on design blogs, etc. I LOVE THE COLOR! My dear husband thinks I'm crazy. He just lets me have fun with it. :)
This table was actually inspired by a desk I painted for my girls. I'll post that one later today or in the next few days.
