A small project

I finally finished a project that I started almost a year ago.

I bought this coffee table last spring for $30.  I loved the large size and the shape of it. I thought it had a lot of promise.

It sat in our garage until we moved in May.  In July we sanded the top of it and took the casters off the legs. It then got too hot to stay outside to sand the whole thing.  Then it got too cold for me to repaint it anyway so it sat in our living room with a sanded top and beat up legs...until now.

I dropped like fifty hints last week to the Fella that I needed it sanded and didn't want to do it myself.  I woke up on Sunday morning to the sweet, sweet sound of a sander.  I then primed and painted it. 

I love it!  Hopefully sometime in the near future I will get better pics of it that don't involve a cat or a messy living area.  But until then...

Messy it is.  And with the wrong pillows on the couch. I only put my nice ones out when I have company.  Kind of like Monica and her fancy guests towels on Friends.
