Project, Post 100

So this is our 100th post. I have been blogging probably just a month over a year so that's what one every 4 days average. Not bad.

There was a real point to this blog. I did a small project. I was all projected out but then I found this great little table that I thought would be perfect as a TV stand. I found it at good will for $12 I loved it straight away even though I thought the price was kind of high for its condition and purpose. I am a total cheapo now and my idea of good prices is completely skewed because of my coupon use. Oh well. Anyway this is what it looked like when I bought it



but way dirtier and with a ton of nail polish on it. Then I primed it. I have to say I am getting quick at priming but I still hate it.



Then I went to Home Depot on this lovely Earth Day with the kids and they almost killed me when it came to my sanity but we got out of there with my red and then I painted it red tonight to relieve some stress from the day.



I really like it a lot. I was joking when I told Daniel I would paint it red. I was originally going to paint it white but we figured we needed to be bold and if we hated it we could just repaint it. This is the end result. I really like it. It makes me think its plastic looking. But I love the shape and details in the little table. It also reminds me of those awesome chandeliers that the designers paint one full color. I love that style. Now I have hot colors in the living room though. What to do now. I actually wanted a red couch. Maybe I won't need one now

I like that you are bold about color. Im a whimp when it comes to color. I prefer to stay with earth tones. Agustine is a little more daring which is why our house in Cali has character. If it weren't for him I would color everything beige...LOL

I really like that red! I saw some read chairs in my Costco magazine the other day and thought of you.

Yeah, we need to pray for our snipers so they can put a cap in all of those stupid pirates.
