Craft Display Table

So here it is at the end of the month & I’ve been working on so many different things that finishing blog posts has been the last thing to work on.  I love that I have found some fun projects & I can’t wait to show you the fun Habitat scores & crafty fall projects that have been consuming my month of August.  Here’s project #1.  I scored this fun 2 tiered table at Habitat that I will be using as a craft table display.  It was an unfinished mdf “wood” table that I immediately envisioned a bright fun color.

It had a weird stain on top, so that too made it a no brainer to repaint it.  I bought it for $5 & it was totally worth it to me!

I have learned the importance of having a primer & this paint that I had on hand worked for this table.  I wanted to use a white spray I had, but I found out it was nearly empty & I think this worked out so much better anyway.

Behold, my favorite new color in the World! haha!! I love love love this Krylon Sea Glass spray paint.  It’s really a happy color & it’s the focus color of my new logo too  that I’m unveiling soon 🙂

I got to use my new Ryobi power drill on this table for it’s first project! Thanks Ryobi for awesome tools!

Abe & I have been painting so much that our drop cloths now look like modern art.  I’ll frame them & sell them at that next craft show 😉

I needed to finish off the edging with this paint.  I wasn’t able to get the spray to stay on the edges & it happen to be a windy morning so aim wasn’t the best either.  Glad I had this on hand, it worked out perfect.

So here it is! Cleaned, primed, sprayed & touched up 🙂 I love it!

August 30 Day RoomChallenge

Happy Monday!! & Happy August!! I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling more energetic when the calendar page turned to August 🙂 Totally something I’m welcoming with huge arms! So I’m going to channel that energy into my next room challenge hosted by Serena of the Thrift Diving Blog.  You may remember June’s Challenge when I did my craft room.  I actually won a set of Ryobi Drills! I’ll attach a pic through my instagram later on today 🙂 That was really exciting!! So glad that Serena has created a great community through bettering our surroundings & has thrown in a little flare for extra fun.

I chose to do my bedroom this month.  It’s blah & needs some much needed new decor.  We have blank walls & miss matched bedding.  Here’s my before pics:

We were lucky enough to get new furniture when we moved in here last year, I just never really decorated it & now is definitely the time!

20140804-082034-30034017.jpgI do love our comforter, but I may need to get a new one, it is getting a little old.  We’ll see what I find! The wall on the right in the picture above needs a nice little gallery type of set up.  I wake up facing that wall, it would be nice to see some pretty artwork or photos.

This tv stand definitely has seen better days.  It survived a move, but not very well.  I’d love to find a stand/cabinet from Habitat’s Restore.  I went in there the other day & didn’t see one yet, but I know I can score one soon.

We need new curtains or upgrade what we have on hand.  I also have a RIT dying kit that I’d love to do something fun with the 2 curtains on the one wall

Oh Manny you know I’ll be asking you first for your approval 😉

Wish me luck! Looking forward to getting crafty with this room.  I have lots of ideas & I’ll be posting them along the way.  Happy August Everyone! WooHoo!!!
