My IN THE WORKS project is F I N I S H E D !!

Editing to add linking up with the Shanty sisters at

I have been working on this table for awhile now and Im so happy to be finished with it.  It started out as the country blue type color and a light stained top.   I had lots of photos and even made a short little video (ha, you've been saved from that)  and I cant find them.  I have a feeling they were on my old phone that died.  UGH!!  So I'll just post what I have.   But you can see a before pic on my sidebar,,  the IN THE WORKS project. 

Ill just let you look at the pictures of the progress .. I will say that I used RustOleum Painters Touch Spray Paint touch in gloss black and the top is stained with Minwax Dark Walnut stain. 

and i had to go back and sand the edges of the tabletop because of some overspray from the black paint

Although I wanted to keep this , part of me wanted to see if I could actually sell something that I had given a makeover.  So I listed it on craigslist two weeks ago.  And IM VERY EXCITED to say that I sold it this past Sunday.  The buyer has the cutest shop in Mendenhall called BallyHoo and she is adding a kitchen to her shop and needed a table.  And come to find out both of my daughters knew her, they took care of her granddaughter at the daycare where they work.  Such a small world,, never know who you will meet. 

And on another note i've noticed that i've almost reached 100 followers,,  WOW!!!

Ill be linking up this week with all the talented bloggers at these parties .. Go check 'em out!
