So, I'm driving home one day from my favorite scrapbooking supply store, and lo and behold...some kids on the side of the road with a coffee table and a "free" sign. Well, now, I just happen to be in the market for a coffee table, and I have a small budget. Free, however, fits right into my budget! So, I loaded it into my van. It was ugly...real ugly. Husband, thought it may be hopelessly ugly. But, I had hope! I had seen on HGTV a while back some design on a budget show, where they turned an ugly table into a cute ottoman. So, I set out to the store to buy a few supplies.
for some reason the pics make the paint job look a little blue, but it's "black ink". Aren't you glad there is hope for ugly coffee tables? I am.
Oh yah, and here's one for giggles:
This is what my kids were doing yesterday when I was painting thier bedroom...the preschooler dressed himself from the basket of clean laundry....you know, a Car's movie tshirt, backwards undies, a winnie the pooh bib, and his funky winter hat. That's practical right? (notice the toddler is in the background doesn't have any clothes on. I was busy painting, what can I say! At least they weren't eating cookies and jumping on the furniture!)
I have 2 of my big projects done! The kids room is done, and my ottoman. Now, i just need to sew a baby gift, put together my decorations for the party and finish the clean up on my house! I'm getting there...
