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? :)
