Hot Pink table

My friend Jen gave me a table a few months back to see if I could work my magic.  It had a broken leg.  No worries,  my handsome hubby fixed the leg and it's been sitting in my work room waiting for a remake.  I was undecided what direction I wanted to go with it. 

Finally I decided on hot pink.  I've been seeing alot of shiny tables all over blogland so I decided to give it a try.  All I did was use a can of glossy spray paint.

I think it turned out really cute.  Wouldn't it be really cute in a little girls room or a teenagers room?  I love how shiny it is.  That is exactly how I wanted it to look.

Plant stand to side table

A few weeks ago I bought a plant stand from a yard sale for $3.00 and I told you that I had plans for it.   The round metal piece beside it came from my own stash. 

I added some words with my vinyl letters to the top and painted over the letters with a few different coats of paint.  I wanted it to look beachy and worn.  

After the paint dried I removed the black vinyl letters and sealed the top.

Next I got out my liquid nails and glued the top to the base.  Here's the finished product.

Not bad for a $3.00 plant stand remake.  The best news is I took it to my shop on Thursday night and it sold on Friday.  I have a few customers that love beach items.

Awesome Birthday Gift


I got an early birthday present from sister #3 this weekend and I just had to brag about it.

What a perfect gift for me. How well my big sister knows me. So far I love it and would recommend it to all my blog friends.

Has anyone else read this book?
