So, this project was a bit off the grid for me, so to speak. You'll see in a minute what I mean, but the end result is FUN!
First things first, though. This little blog is quickly approaching 200 followers (179 at last count) which makes me just giddy with excitement. I'd like to do something to celebrate and to say a huge 'thanks' to those of you who are supporting me in each step of this journey.
If you'll remember, when we hit 100 followers, I gave away a huge custom magnetic board (yay!!). That was a big hit. What do you want to see for a giveaway next? I need some feedback, folks :) I was thinking a giftcard, perhaps a visa card, but that isn't very original. What do you think?! And just like last time, all you need to do to win is be a follower (for those of you not familiar with this, all you need is an email address & a password to do this).
Black & Decker has asked me to sign onto their new "projects & advice" section of their website, which looks really cool & fun. Check out my new badge on the upper right sidebar on the blog. Perhaps they would want to give away some fun tools?!? Let me know what you think.
This table was yet another find of my neighbor/scouter. She's fabulous, have I said that lately?! When she brought it over, I was mid-priming session on several other pieces so unfortunately, the only 'before' I have of this piece is actually an 'in progress'.
Here's a sneak peek
So I painted it a nice neutral color...
In my quest to use up all of the random paint in our basement, I went with this. It is a Rustoleum spray paint, meant for striping projects, I believe. It is almost neon. Blinding.
HUGE fail. Soppy, wet, drippy fail.
I also just finished this dresser that was a Goodwill find. I am STILL searching for the owner of the Bible that I found inside it. It is embossed & has all sorts of family information handwritten inside. I am determined to find this person, or at least his family!
Sorry for the awful pictures :) My Nikon battery died on me, so I used my 'cheap' camera.
So, become a follower if you aren't already, and let me know what you'd like to see in a giveaway!!
thanks for coming by!
