Question to the Veteran Bloggers

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.

Procrastinators Unite.....Tomorrow!

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.

In progress shot:
Half the tiles have been freed (AKA: broken into eleventy billion pieces)

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.
