I finished my table...
actually, you'd be quite proud of me; I finished this project the same weekend I started it.
A VERY BIG DEAL TO ME!!!
You know the procrastinator I am prone to be.
I lived with my bedroom floor looking like this for little more than a month!
I didn't change much out on the walls. I did hang the white shelf back onto the wall. Yes, it fell down. (you can barely see it in the above photo) Crash! that was a night I didn't get much sleep.
It's securely attached now though.
I didn't paint the inside of the table/cabinet. Didn't see any point in it; as there is a door!
Also, the slide out tray for extra surface... only got a little paint along the edge.
I know what you're thinking. Wow, --- You really went out on a limb there with your choice of paint color!
...And Well, Yes, I did! You know me so well.
You, dear faithful reader, have known my struggle.
You might remember last year around about this time (a year ago this month!) I wrote this:
I think I've been making myself crazy! All along I thought it was that "White was so peaceful"; and to some it may be. But, let me tell you-- if you can't achieve The Shabby White look... it's NOT peaceful. It becomes a crazy cycle; and there you are, just spinning your wheels, trying to accomplish something that just isn't you. ~CorninmyCoffee-pot (more on discontentment in the home)
So what color is it?
Valspar Terra Cotta Red...
Or is it?!?!
It kind of looks like Black and Decker Firestorm Orange...
Oh, and just so you know...
I'm happy with the color! :)

Thank you to these 2 ladies for allowing me to use their photos and for inspiration!

***Oh, and just so you know... I used the Valspar paint sample and plaster of paris to make my own DIY chalk paint and sealed it with Minwax finishing paste wax (with a little bit of stain added to make it darker)
