i have a run-down little table that needed a face lift
i forgot to take a before shot

here's the table after i sanded the top
lots of water damage 
horrible condition
lots-o-sanding = very tired arms

after sanding, i primed the table
2 coats

after coat one
see how the top still looks pretty awful
needs another coat :(

then three coats of shiny red

ta da.

shiny red
will reside in the family room
right now she's still tacky
& sitting in the kitchen
where i can admire her

happy friday.... thank goodness 
(super long week)
until monday
i will leave you with this photo
a beautiful sunny morning
in my family room


  1. I love red! Great job. I never think to refurbish furniture although I know people do it all the time. I think it's the sanding that gets me. There's your dog, just lounging again!

  2. That looks fabulous! So shiny and bold! The shape of the table is all kinds of yummy too. Great job! Love it!

  3. What a cute little has so much character. Great job!

  4. Hi! I have seen you around on several of the blogs I read...Nice to meet you.
    I love the red and I love that you used spray paint. I just started looking at Pinterest yesterday. I have been afraid that it will take up even more time that I should be cleaning or running or something else. We will see. I am following so I can come back often. Have a nice weekend!
