Painting Tables

Yep, I'm off my miserable "missing my boy at Kindergarten" backside, and I'm paintin up a storm! LOL.

Well, reality hit me and I thought maybe it was time i cleared the hallway of furniture, it was fast becoming an obstacle course AND Shane was starting to require regular blood transfusions to make up for the blood he kept losing every time he banged into something.....(chuckle chuckle) but geez you'd think he would have gotten used to them being there by now and worked himself out a safety route huh?

Anyroad, to keep things peaceful ive done 2 bedside tables so hubbs can see that there is light at the end of the hallway... (until i buy more stuff to fill the hallway back up...ssshhh dont tell Shane, let him have his joy for 5 minutes).

Before....a lil bit cute n country but hmmm i had something better in mind.

After....love this now...can i keep it...in the hallway maybe..???

Now for something a little Oh-So-Sweet for a girlie girl like me :)
Woops just realised i didn't take a b4 piccie. Oh well, it was brown anyway.

I painted the sides pink with my roses.

You can pop on over to My Ebay this week to check these pretties out!

Another great thing about clearing the hallway and painting.....keeping my mind occupied during this tragic time we are experiencing here in Australia. However my thoughts and prayers are never too far away.....

Be safe, be strong, be happy and DONT SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF.

Great bedside tables Shann... They turned out so pretty. It's amazing how such oridinary brown pieces of furniture can become so shabby chic and pretty with just a few coats of paint and some elbow grease. Love how you painted the sides of the chest of drawers pink with the roses. Take care and have a great week. Hope your little guy is enjoying school and isn't missing you too much during the day!!

Hi Shann,
I love the new painted table, so pretty. I think I need to let you loose in my place for a few quick painting jobs!
Will head over to your ebay auctions to have a look when I am finished here.
