Tadaaaaaa

The finished product.......




It's not totally perfect, there's a few drips here and there and a spot where it's not totally covered, but overall I'm pretty psyched about it. It's good enough for me to try again with the nightstand. Can't wait for the next nice day to do it.

I want to get some of these Crate and Barrel Sedona Baskets for the bottom shelf to hold tarts and other goodies.

It looks great! JD refinished some pieces for our house and I love them more than the new stuff we bought cause I know the work that went into it. And I think the little imperfections make them even more special.

That's pretty cool! You're lucky to be moving to Florida. I moved from there to New York, but think about moving back or moving anywhere that is fairly warmer!

I'm moving to Davenport! I looked in Orlando too but ended up wanting to live a little more on the outside of the city. I can't wait!

Looks great! I've painted several pieces of furniture before and actually just finished up painting our kitchen cabinets. I love how they turn out too. Only gripe I have is that they sometimes scratch easily so I feel like I have to be more careful w/ them.
