Craft Night

Here is our messy work area:

Table Makeover

My Mom recently picked up this little table for me from an antique store for about $19. I wasn't too crazy about the orange-y color so I decided to sand it (believe me...when I say sand it. That just means that I barely rubbed it with a little sand paper just to make the paint stick. I hate sanding!!) and throw on a coat of chocolate brown.

Here are a few before and after shots:



I also grabbed my Mod Podge and added some book pages to the drawer to help tie it in with my wreath and then topped it off with a sea shell handle. The paint job isn't perfect but, it works. :)

It was the perfect size for the little landing between my stairs.

Thanks Mom! :)
