Trashy to Flashy...

Classy for a kid's table right?
I forgot to take a before pic, so I took a "in the middle" shot :)

So, for those of you out there that keep in touch with me on FB too...a couple weeks ago I mentioned I went to Lowes to get supplies to build a table and chair set for my kids. I've wanted one for a long time, but buying them new is kinda expensive! 2 days after I bought all the supplies, I found this little beauty on Craigslist for the the same price. That meant I didn't have to build it, just refinish it! I picked it up, and starred at it for a couple more weeks until just yesterday sanded this baby down and painted it! I must admit that I don't love the color, it's not as dark as I wanted it. For now it will have to do, I'll fix it when I get another chance to, but in the meantime Skylee can enjoy having her own little table :) There's just something about doing things yourself, making it YOURS!

Good job, Britt! The table looks great and Skylee looks so happy to have it. You'll get YEARS of use out of that table.

So cute! That is a great idea. I have been trying to find a table and chairs set for the past year or two at a decent enough price and haven't, way to think! I love your cutie festive self! I need to get in gear...yet again! Thanks for the inspiration!
