Before and After

For the past few days, I have been working on finishing up a project that has long been sitting in our sunroom, waiting to be finished. We've had the kiddie sized picnic table for a while now, and it badly needed a sanding and new coat of paint. So, Active Boy stripped the paint off, sanded it and primed the picnic table. Then, I, with all my knowledge of painting things (I had actually never painted anything in my life - except paper - before this) came in and gave it a color coat. Now, teal is not my most favorite color in the world, but it was either that or sea-foam green, or the two colors of our living room: dark rose or light, soft tan (isn't it nice to go shopping in the basement?)

All in all, I think the table turned out pretty good! It will be nice to have on the deck this summer, so the kidlets can dine outdoors. :)

Ok, ok. So I don't have a before picture. BUT you might! Do you have any projects you've done recently that you'd like to share? I'd love to see them! Just sign yourself up on the Mister Linky here, making sure you link to your Before and After post (not your blog homepage).
