I have been wanting to share this project with you for a while now. I finished this little table back in May and was saving it for a week like this one…when my “projects” were not the spectacular crafty sorts but just more life sorts. For example, tackling a consignment sale is not my every week sort of thing.
For eight years we have had the same two end tables in our living room. I was getting a bit board with them. We turned one of them into Caleb’s work bench outside.
He adores it! He now has a place to store his tool box and work on his projects, where I wont start moving them all around and cleaning up. It is his area. The second table needed a makeover to keep using it in our livingroom, so I turned into a decoupaged, painted, fun piece.
I love the way it turned out! I will try to keep these details short, since I have been having some rather lengthy posts lately.
Step One: I primed it and painted it white.
Step Two: I painted the bottom half with gray paint we had left over from our kitchen makeover.
Step Three: I painted the top ridge with a light, light icy blue. It almost looked white, until it was put against white.
Step Four: I mod podged music sheets to the top of the table. I did several coats of mod podge on top (letting it dry completely between each coat).
Step Five: Put your hardware back on and enjoy!!
That picture fully shows my DIY photo coasters I made a while back. I love to enjoy my projects once they are finally finished!! It is such a rewarding feeling to see something you made, give a room a new look. You guys can do this project! So easy! The hard part is waiting for the paint to dry! I’m not a very patient person. 🙂
Thank you so much for checking into my Friday Project Spotlight!! I am off to Ideafarm this weekend! I can’t wait to join my hubby and the rest of the Broken Voices team for a life changing, inspirational weekend! You guys might remember me talking about Ideafarm here. In short…
“IDEAfarm is a four-day experience for college-aged people who are looking to take a specific discontent they have with the world today and do something about it. It’s an experience for young people who are looking to do something more, looking to be a part of something bigger. Each summer, IDEAfarm takes place at Lake Jackson in Atlanta, Georgia, providing an intimate environment for our students to grow and thrive. With the use of whole group sessions, small group meetings, and free time to spend both in community and in solitude, IDEAfarm’s purpose is found.”
I can’t believe this weekend/event is already here! The summer flew by!
I hope you guys have a great weekend! I’ll be back next week with a post of how this weekend went! Please be praying for us and our students!
Party It Up at: One Creative Mommy, Cheerios and Lattes
