I call my left bicept Russel

I found a great steal at Salvation army last week. 50% off a $55 dollar table set. Naturally, I snagged them up. I wasn't quite sure what to do with them, but I knew something could be done. I was up for the challenge, but limited in lifting power. My husband was at work. No worries- I called in my reinforcements. My older sister Kacey and superman friend Russel. Here they are hard at work...



I didn't lift anything, I'm a wimp. With Xena and Superman around I wasn't needed much.



Now I have two new pieces to work on. I went to Lowes ad picked out the paint today. I got a lesson in how white is never just white! I can't wait to show you the finished project.


I got started on it a little bit yesterday...

Thank you Kacey and Russel!!!

  1. It'll look great! Can't wait to see it. Question, did you sand it first or use liquid sander?

  3. Thank you.
    I sanded it down real good with my NEW* Black and Decker Cyclone sander- which I'm super excited about. =)

  4. I think I need to get me one of those sanders! I barely use kitchen utensils, so any power tools could be dangerous! ;-) But I'll give it a try!

  10. It's looking good already. I'm currently working on a project and I hear ya on that whole white paint thing. All white is not white. I used a drill today for the first time ever...maybe I'm up for a sander?
