She's crafty...

Well last month was......interesting. Aside from everyone being ill a few times I had some fun crafty outlets. This little number was hiding in my attic and really needed a face lift. I obliged :)

Now typically, one would place a before picture here instead of an after picture. However, one has a hard time doing this when they get too excited and start painting before they remember what a camera is. Suffice it to say, this table was plain. It was composite wood tan and it needed help.

After finishing the project, Luke was SOOOOO excited he promptly broke one of the legs off. YIKES that kid can really be a beast sometimes. So we had to fix that. I cut a circle with my jig saw in a 1x8 and glued it to the bottom with liquid nails. After that I just used longer screws to attach the leg brackets, and there you go. Easy peasy. 

My sweetie surprised me with a flower yesterday. I think it was meant for that table :)
The chalk board paint went on really well, it was thick and a little more smelly the regular paint but the results have been awesome. It's a total hit! The kids love it, it's cute, and it works great for mushy little love notes :).

So cute! The chalk paint pattern is delightful. I love bright daisies, too.
