...I got this as a project piece from one of Nene and my's secret places I got for the shop. The wood was raw pine, like it had been stripped and left-I loved it. But the upholstery was bright red with tiny gold stars. I didn't feel like taking the time or money to re-do too much so I spray painted the whole thing, upholstery and all, off-white which makes the fabric still soft to touch but also makes the fabric look like old, faded pink. I liked it so much I plopped in at the table in our family room and it looks too good and comfy and actually useful that I'm keeping it-for now. I don't have to be quite so frantic now that I'm not thinking of Sunday as THE LAST DAY I'LL EVER SELL ANYTHING. Whew! Better hurry to the previous post for explaination.

Small projects for big event
In thinking for over a month that I was completely moving out of the shop plus The Strawberry Days on Sunday, I've been pulling out every dang thing that's not being useful or giving me a buzz to look at and slapping on paint, or not, to get it ready for my yard sale booth on Sunday. Above is my new coffee table thanks to a great trip to Nene's yesterday. She was getting ready to take it to the dump (I know, it didn't even make her cut!) when I asked about it. It was immediately mine. Brought it home, washed out the spiders, webs, and eggs, dried it, and popped that bad boy under the Hoova, and voila!!!! I totally heart it. I swear these are the kinds of tables they sell at Round Top for $400. Another bonus is that more of my beautiful Mc-K-C rug shows even more. The cool off-white piano bench that was there is now FOR SALE at the shop...
