Painting Project, Again
Meet the new red side table in the guest room. OK, I'm really going to stop painting furniture for a while. Not because I don't like it, but simply because there isn't anything left in the house to paint. Oh wait, except the breakfast table.
Spring yard sales present massive problems for me.
1. I buy things I have no space for.
2. (And this relates directly back to #1) There are dozens of smallish tables selling for next to nothing, and I feel the need to cart them all back home.
This side table was a steal at $7.00. The man selling it had painted it a faux wood 'crackle.' For the life of me I cant understand why you would paint over wood to make something look like, well, wood. Either way, I loved it's pedestal leg and snapped it up. That was last April, and this is almost February. The poor thing has floated around, no special place to belong for almost a year. Finally, it has a home. And my backyard is red, again.
