Table & A Giveaway!

I want so badly to put some flowers out but I'm afraid we'll get another cold snap. And I'm not lugging plants in & out like I did last year or covering them again..trash bags on all the window boxes is NOT the look I'm going for! 


Until it warms up, I'll have to settle for little birds like this to remind me that Spring is right around the corner.

I made another baby step toward pulling the den together with this coffee table.  It can't happen fast enough but I'm trying to be patient. I can't wait to get that carpet out of here. 

We were cleaning out the garage this past weekend and found this table under a pile of storage tubs.  I forgot we had it!  I love the legs and of course the casters are awesome.

Here it is after a little paint.  I gave it the usual treatment of deglosser (didn't need to sand), paint (light gray then dry brushed a bright white over it - the light just doesn't pick up any of it), distressed & sealed it with wax.

I'm not a big fan of glass tables but I might have to change my view on that.  I think it keeps it from being too clunky..adds some lightness to it.

Who doesn't love a curvy leg?


Now, let's talk about something REALLY fun!  I've been blogging for a while and to be honest, I haven't  posted regularly.  I've gone MIA a few times too *sigh*.  BUT I'm figuring out what I want to do with all of this and the direction I'm heading with blogging and my business and I'm pretty excited about it! 

I just want to say thank you to everyone who follows me and reads this little blog of mine.  I want to show my gratitude with a giveaway of a giftcard from either Home Depot or TJ Maxx - winner's choice!  All you have to do is leave a comment & follow.  That's it!  I'll draw a name next Wednesday & send an email to the lucky winner!  

Thank you again for coming by & good luck!!
