Total white out

I decided to take the day off from work today (please don't judge...I have 3 weeks left and every day is longer than the next, I have a serious case of move-itis) and do a little relaxing, packing and house work. Well it just so happened that today is the most gorgeous day yet so outside I went to do a little painting. We have set of 3 glass top desks with black bottoms that I have been dying to paint white....

...and the other day in a moment of DIY inspiration (or insanity, I don't see the difference) I stopped on the side of the road to pick up this free, poor, sad, ugly looking nightstand and I was determined to fix it up and give it a loving home.


So armed with Gorilla Glue (that bottom drawer really isn't going to work in 3 pieces), spray paint, and some Greek Villa Sherwin Williams paint I venture outside in the heat to let my inner DIYer shine through and maybe get some heat stroke in the process. Seriously, a little upset stomach, headache and fatigue would do me good. I ate a burger and small fry (ok I'm lying it was a LARGE!) for lunch and finished it all off with some ice cream (a creemee, their practically fat free). Stay tuned for the makeover...the furniture, not me, I'm not going to show you all my expanding waste line, that's just weird and uncomfortable.

I have been contemplating doing that with glass top desk also, so I am really excited to see how yours comes out! Also can't wait to see how the dresser ends up. (baskets instead of drawers maybe if that one drawer doesn't work out, just a thought)

Can't wait to see!

Ooh projects! Yay! I'm happy that you took pity on that poor little nightstand. It just looks sad. I can't wait to see the finished goods!

After I gave my notice when I quit my job, I had the WORST time getting motivated or doing anything productive there. I won't judge your day off! =)
