ROADSIDE TRASH TO CHIC TREASURE





Hi all, I hope you all had just a fabulous Christmas holiday! I sure did! We are truly blessed with wonderful family and we all stayed healthy thru x-mas! That's always a Christmas miracle when you have 3 school aged children! So TYG! so I know I've been missing in action for a while, I've had the bloggy blues. i don't know if this has happened to you, but I got to felling like no one was looking at my blog unless I linked up to every party in the blogosphere! But as of today, I've decided that my 77 followers are enough for me- I'm not going to stress about linking up to all the parties, that's not to say i won't link up, just that I won't stress about it everyday! I hope that those of you that already follow will continue to visit and tell your friends about my blog, if you like. And if i get a few more followers along the way that's great too! I am going to blog what I love and love what I blog! It's just another creative outlet for me and I hope I can inspire some people along the way. i want to thank all you that have been following me and my quest to paint every piece of furniture in my path as well as make a little money at it to contribute to the family finances.so w/o further adieu, let's get back to painting! Here is a little end table I picked up off of the side of the road, painted it gloss black and painted a little scrolly design onto. i painted the scroll design w/ cream and then low lighted it w/ a neutral tan. it's kinda hard to see in these pics, as most of you know my forte is not photography!She's in the store for sale now!

  5. Gorgeous!!! The scrolly details just make it fabulous. I know I felt like I had to link up to every party at the beginning. At some point I realized that the creative part and getting to share is what I love the most... I share where I can, but it's not worth stressing about. Thanks for sharing at the PoPP! I'm putting your table in the Spotlight.
