Much Better


While my hubby and kids are at church camp this week, I have been doing some projects that I have needed/wanted to do but don't have the time with working, cleaning, cooking, shopping.  You know...being the mom!  :)  Since I am alone for 7 days, I have been busy with a couple things.

When we moved to Michigan, I talked my mom out of this old table she had in her house.  I loved the lines it had.  I thought I had a before picture to show you but I have looked and looked with no luck.  But, I can describe it to you.  It was BLACK!  Very very dark stained.  Those colors don't go in my farmhouse/cottage/hodgepodge style house.  So, I bought some of that Behr paint from Home Depot that is primer and paint all in one and gave her a new color.  It is called Enamelware and the color came from Martha Stewart paints.  It is a very pale blue.  The bottom photo you can kind of see the color.

While I was painting it, I called my mama to tell her what I was up to.  She asked me if I had painted the leg that was chewed up at the bottom.  I told her I saw that...what happened to the leg?  She told me that her puppy Chelsea had teethed on that leg when she was a pup some 20 plus years ago.  Isn't that funny?  Those little bite marks are still there!

I am so thrilled with the way it turned out.  What about you mom?  Do you like your old table?  :)

Love the table, didn't know you were painting it blue. Missing home while I'm in DC especially after reading all the fun stuff you are doing at home. Can't wait to come see you on our next little vacation.
