Me and a friend of mine were driving back home from Garage Sales one day. It was last year and someone had left this really pretty but kind of in bad shape some kind of hutch for the Kitchen. I have had it since then and I wanted to paint it bit never got around to it. I wanted it like a blue color like turquoise and so I did that and here comes my husband an sprays red on it!! I said what are you doing? I was kind of upset until I saw what he did and said. He told me you don't have anything blue in the Kitchen. Then as the paint dried he told me to lightly spray a little black on it and it came out so beautiful!! It is like a burgundy color now which is one of my favorite colors and with the light spray of black it is just so different. I wish I could figure out how to get the picture from my phone to my lap top so you guys can see it. When I figure it out I will share the before and after. I am not all the way through because we had rain yesterday and I will be working on it again later today. L.O..L Now every time I see a shelf or something that someone is throwing away I want to get it and fix it! Do you do this?

cool I just have to figure out how to get the pics from my phone to my laptop. I used to know how to do it but it is confusing to me anymore.But I am going to try it again and again to try to get it where I can do it again. L.O.L. Wish me luck.

I purchased a few things this past winter that I want to paint, still waiting for the weather to cooperate for multiple days in a row. With the wind it may have to wait till June or July when that stops blowing. I would love to see to see your finished piece.

I got one of the best seats for my living room from a garage sale. It used to be elegant, but then it was dirty and awful. I reholpdered with a man who could do the job and a good tapestry. It is beautiful and very comfortable.
