A before & after before winter hit...

So, if you haven't been able to tell- winter is the slow time around here.  In Oklahoma, it seems to go from summer to winter in about 2 days flat.  That is probably a little of an exaggeration, but not much.  Add that to the fact that I am a complete novice and work on all of my projects out of my garage and the result is that I have quite an abrupt end to my painting season.  No fancy workshop here, only on loan during daytime hours as well (as our goal is to be able to park both cars in the garage every night).  Anyway, all that is to say that come winter  time you are going to see a dramatic slowdown in my projects and probably posts as well.  Some of these bloggers out there are amazing and can always find something to share.  Me, not so much.  But, in an attempt to not completely loose your interest- I will try.  

Which brings me to a "before & after" that I did before the weather went south.  A friend asked me to re-paint these 2 tables for her.  The little blue one needed some repair as well.  It was quite unstable and the wood was separating in some places.
    


AFTER
I think they turned out pretty well, if I do say so myself :)






I just love what a little paint and TLC can do to refresh old furniture.  
It never ceases to amaze me.

  1. I am LOVING this shade of tuorquoise! Is this a custom mix or would you mind sharing the color/brand? They both turned out great!
