hi dearies! friday already, huh? did you have a good week? i sure enjoyed being back and think that i’m finally getting back in the swing of things! i’m off to charlotte for a wedding tomorrow then meeting up with the hub for a night together in charleston. i haven’t been in years, so i’m really excited! and, i have a confession to make. i finally broke and though i had tried to not get involved, it happened. last week i started reading twilight. yup, that’s right, and now i can’t sleep because i can’t get my head out of these books! i’m on page 176 of eclipse already, and my obsession is in full gear. yes, i feel like i’m back in highschool, but boy am i loving it! ;)
onto what’s we’re really going to talk about today, a before and after project!
believe it or not, in our last house i used this table as-is for about a year. under the tv it sat in it’s raw state. but when we moved, i got the motivation to fix ‘er up!
now, isn’t that better? here’s what i did:
i painted all the wood with a high gloss ultra white paint (standard at the hardwood store) with a brush, and let it fully dry. then i used one of my favorite gadgets from ikea, attached it to the insides of the table and then clipped the curtain to it (fabric is also from ikea). within an afternoon, this gal had made a complete turn around!
