Spring Break Mission Accomplished-ish

Even though this spring break hasn't gone exactly as planned with all the cold, wind, rain, and family stuff, we still managed to get almost everything done on the 'ol to-do list. The biggest accomplishment is our newly painted kitchen table and chairs. When it turned out to be too windy to spray paint, Brad picked up a paint brush and joined me in the kitchen. Three coats and four paint-splattered arms later, and . . .

Ta-da!



It's overcast and rainy today, so these pictures aren't the best, but you get the idea.



See that little microwave cabinet in the corner? Oh yes, that is next up for a paint job and some new hardware.



Woohoo! I love how crisp and fresh the table looks. I promise it is not as glowing white as the harsh flash makes it appear.

I picked up the cute little lemon basket in the center for about a quarter at Goodwill today. So, if you count the fact that we already had the paint leftover from another project, and that I found the tablecloth at Goodwill a few years ago, this whole new look cost us about a buck.

Suddenly, I love it even more!

Yay! This looks really good, Hattie. :) The rainy weather has kept me from doing my furniture painting this week, but I am starting on my canvas that has been sitting blank for almost a year now.
