A Little Bit of Sanity and A Lot of Chaos: Red End Table

Thursday, October 7, 2010

Red End Table

I've been on such a white kick lately, I decided to take a ginormous leap out of my comfort zone. 

This leap led to red. (Ha.)

I found this tiny little end table at the thrift store I love to hate. It was even on sale, so I paid a whopping $7.36 for it.

I sanded the top because it was in horrible shape.


And then primed her and painted her red.



I was going stain the top, but had a brilliant idea. Actually, I didn't have any stain left, but I had a can of chalkboard paint! So I painted the top in chalkboard. And basically attacked it with a 60 grit sand paper.




It's all scratched up, knicked and bruised and ready for writing.

How fun would it be to draw tic-tac-toe or a checkerboard, or keep score in Farkle. 

Love. Love. Love.



Thanks Nester for the word inspiration.
