Refinshing Furniture

Here we go starting another brand new week!  I apologize for not visiting much last week but it has been very hectic around here (as I’m sure it has been at your place as well).  This weekend I did alot of shopping, but mostly for my enjoyment (hehe!).  For the last few years, our families have decided to buy gifts for kids only.  I think this takes alot of the stress of Christmas shopping off of everyone.  Outside of our family, I like to give small gifts to friends and the people who take care of our family in different ways over the course of the year – like our dog groomers.  We have 2 dogs that become very shy when it’s time to get groomed.  It’s amazing how many rough handling groomers we have come across.  About a year and half ago I found the most gentle loving groomers and I just wanted to tell them “thanks for all that you do”.  The surprise on their face yesterday was priceless!

While out and about shopping, I stopped at a furniture resale shop and fell in love with an old coffee table.  The top was scratched, had crayon marks, and the stain was worn.  I just could not get myself to walk away from it.  This coffee table could be so chic if refinished – not to mention the price was far less than a fill-up at the gas station.  When I brought it home, I saw the look in my husbands eye.  He was skeptical.  I got to work on it right away and have already sanded and put the first coat of paint on it.  It looks awesome!  I L-O-V-E it!  My husband now sees where I”m going with this.  I’ll post a picture of it later this week once it’s finished.  The only thing is that I forgot to take a “before” shot of it.
