little red table

Rain rain rain almost the entire week. it’s a shame for my visitors, but it didn’t stop us from having lots of fun visiting texas. from rodeo to shamu, bbq, german sausage, tex-mex, trade days etc. it sure was a busy weekend for me.

i managed to squeeze in some DIY time before picking up my visitors at the airport. let me introduce you to “little owl table.” this retro style side table is a curb side rescue. in order words, it’s FREE. the mr. picked it up after work. don’t get the wrong impression, i had to begged him for it. but it was worth it :)

before…ugly laminate and warp corners012
after…..lots of sanding, priming, painting, cutting and gluing042

after after…..searching, printing, cutting, sponging. owl is so BIG this season059

Since halloween is around the corner, let me share a “dark” photo taken at Fredericksburg trade days…….
