I'm still working on my chair. I've been slowed in my progress because of spring cleaning. It's about 1/4 done. Hang on I'll have a reveal soon. In the meantime I managed to squeeze in a quick makeover on a side table that I've had for many years. Its another piece I bought from Bombay Co. boy I never realized how many pieces I have from that store. I guess it's because I worked in the shopping center where the store was located. My paycheck must have been spent there on the regular. Here is a picture of the table before:
Its a little dinged and scratched and I'm tired of the color. I decided to paint the table in two shades of gray. I had a little Sharkey Gray left over from my bench makeover. It wasn't enough to do the whole top, so I added some white and a little black to it. The color came out a creamy gray, I've officially named it Creagrae lol. I bought a sample size of Dolphin Gray by Martha Stewart paints for my living room walls. I love it, but the sample wont go far on the walls so I decided to use it for the legs of the table. I like the way the two colors look together.
I am well on my way to a whole new room. Even though I'm working at a snails pace I'm making progress. I bought the lamp at J C Penny on clearance about a year ago along with curtains and shades that are still boxed and packed up. That's how long I've been chipping away at this one space.I bought a slipcover for my sofa also from JCP on sale, I don't really like it, the fit is a little funky... so I decided to alter it. I wish I had just made it myself and saved myself some dough. I'll probably end up making another one so it will be exactly the way I want it. But now that gardening season is upon us it will have to wait until fall. I'm getting real antsy now to get this done, but I have to be careful not to overtire myself, hence the snails pace. I'll have the chair reveal soon I promise. So whats new with all of you my friends? I'm joining The Newbie Party at Debbie Doos Blogging and Blabbing and
