I am very new the the whole blong thing. I just saw where I could change my settings so that I am emailed the comments on my blog. I didn't know anyone was commenting on my blog and I feel bad because I feel like I have ignored people. Is there a way to respond back to an individual comment or do I go to their blog and leave a comment on their post and hope they know what I am talking about? I have tried reading the help files but I am just getting myself more confused! Not a hard thing to do. Anyway, any help would be appreciated.
It's time for a party! I just RSVP'd to be a part of The Inspired Room's Procrastinator's party. I have a million projects going on right now in various stages. The project I am choosing to tackle is the kitchen table. It is a hand me down from my brother and sister-in-law. I believe she bought it in the 80's. You will see why I say that in a minute. The table has been well loved and when I heard they were getting rid of it I thought, I could give that table a new life. I started working on this table a while back (a lot longer than I care to admit) I had fun taking out the tiles and then it was time for the sanding, sanding, sanding, and did I mention sanding?
A couple of before shots:
You can now see why I have dated this table to the 80's. Tile with mauve and brown flowers... Think I can get away with calling it vintage? I didn't think so.
All the tiles have vanished and the sanding has begun. You can also see the new color we chose for the kitchen! It's bright and happy and I love it. I still need to make curtains for the windows but alas I am focused on my table :)
That brings us to the present time. I would love to say that it's all re-tiled and stained a new fabulous color but well I lost interest in it for awhile and decided to paint my living room. Don't we all do that in the middle of a project!
Anyway, I have decided that I will dedicate my time to finishing this table (the chairs are another party all together) My plan for the next two weeks is to finish sanding (I am about 95% done), put in new tile, and find a stain that I like and finish this table. I can't wait to see the finished product! I will post pictures of the after product at the end of the party on October 20th. Wish me luck.
So, what have you been procrastinating on?
Edit: The table did not get finished. Yep, I procrastinated.... again. Story of my life. When it does get finished (crosses fingers) I will post pictures.
