I love paint.

I do.

Paint thrills me. You want to know why?

Because it can transform this:

Into this:

I love this table. I can't believe that I almost passed this beauty over!

I love the rectangular shape and the pedestal legs because now I can put it under the window.

Look! Another picture with my vacuum cleaner in the background! I am a pro aren't I?

I ended up moving the girl's craft table to the opposite end of the room because I really wanted to put this bench under the window.
 

Here's a long view of the room:

This is the wall opposite the table.


I have never loved this room so much. I have to find some old pictures to show you when this room was painted purple, enclosed with baby gates and filled with toys. {Shudder!}

I have one more little treat to show you!

I went to Global Thrift yesterday in search of clothes which fit and found this!


A chippy old easel! It is an easel on both sides which the girls where immediately taken with.


The price of this beauty? 3.99!

There is one danger of solitary junking. Sometimes I buy really weird clothes. Lately I have been attracted to 1960's polyester. I do not know why.


I think it was the crazy arms that did it. I'll see how the playground moms respond. Sometimes you have to take chances even if it means showing up in 45 year old polyester.

You decorate like some of the shops here. Very nice. The chairs I have are like the rounded back one with vertical lines. I'm afraid to touch them.

Love the room, the white paint lifts it beautifully. I am inspired to do something now..and love the polyester mini caftan. It would have been a crime to leave it behind. The jeans and red toenails complement it perfectly!

Polyester? Oh boy. Now I feel bad about finally getting rid of my cute little polyester micro dresses.

That table transformed beautifully.

Michael, Michael, Michael... I am deeply offended.

She's been a MILF since 1999.

Keep up son.

Oh dear... I just bought about a thousand cans of black spray paint for some "pre-owned" wicker but your white furniture looks so nice and crisp I might need to exchange it... And you are looking might skinny in your last pic...

David, isn't there something in the marriage covenant that requires you say that or was that something I just remember from the Machiavellian guide to womanizing.

Hello Sara - I have a similar table to yours which I have wanted to paint for ages - Can you tell me what paint you used.
Thanks - it looks great :)
