....NO rain and it was all finished in time for Saturday's yard sales...
Painting this sofa table is something I have put off for months and months...actually for three years.

I was afraid.  Afraid I wouldn't like it...afraid it would look awful..or I  would do something wrong..but I finallly got my nerve up and it's all done. 

Well, once again I forgot to take a before least you can see the stark difference painting this sofa table made. 
It was a nice shabby chic piece in a sort of French Country family room, except mine is not really what you could call  French Country.  It just things I like.  Just "stuff"...

...and here it is all done and back in place!  I love it! 
Isn't it amazing what a difference a bit of spray paint can make?

Please s'cuse the cord...I don't think my photo's through before I take them. 
..ho hum...
Every time I go in the room today I am going to be all..puffed up with pride...
and you KNOW what they say about that! kind...ok? 
(but then you ALWAYS are!)

Love and hugs...
Mona garage sales...I'll show you tomorrow.  What a story I have to tell know how daughters are...  never mind..I'll tell you tomorrow!  :)  
(or maybe Wednesday) Ok?
..more hugs..

The way you've decorated it in your home is beautiful. I know you said you'd taken 3 years to pluck up the courage to do it's done and you've every reason to feel puffed up with pride!

  16. I love your sofa table. I painted some furniture black and the only thing I don't love about it IT SHOWS THE DUST. But I have a sign that says "Dust... is a country accent". That covers it!! lol Enjoy your day!!

  17. You did a GREAT job as usual. I don't know where you find the time. You are like that little energizer bunny. In one word you are
    A W E S O M E!.........kt

  18. Mona...I am in sofa table envy. I have always wanted a room where I could do this. I love it and love the color you chose. Have fun decorating it through the years. Balisha

  19. I absolutely LOVE this piece and you did a great job on it Mona! In the picture I noticed that it really brings out the dark colored grout on your rich looking brick fireplace. I wish I would have used that color grout on mine!
    Anyway, the table is just beautiful as well as the display on top.

    Have a wonderful day!
