All Finished!


I got my new table all finished up today!  Yeah!!

I was able to score two baskets for my it at Michaels at 65% off... Whoop!

Here it is all finished up...











I normally don't spray paint furniture but I decided to give it a go.  I was so happy I did!  It only took a few minutes to get the paint on and it dried super fast.  I used our favorite...


After it was dry I used an 80-grit sanding block to shanty the edges up just  a bit.


I love it!! Hope you do too!!  I do think the baskets are missing just a little something so I came up with a solution.  I will be back with that in one of my next posts.

Make sure to check out Ana White's site for SOOO many easy and fun furniture plans.  I'm so glad I did and now I will be planning my next project!  I may have to give furniture away so I can have room to build new stuff :-)

Hope you all had a great and safe weekend!

Love it! You are so funny. I have kind of done the same thing, except trying to find accessories. Hobby Lobby has a bunch of stuff 66% off. You did forget to mention in your post that you did this while your husband was out of town and you were taking care of 4 kids!

I have loved your site for some time now and have made great things from all your ideas. I began with your cute dominoes! I added a link to your site on my blog since I had used your ideas. I hope this is ok.
