Here goes.....

Thanks for all the great tips on getting me started with my painting projects. Thursday night I roughed up the surfaces, wiped it down good with the TSP cleaner; let it dry and then gave it a good coat of primer.

Last night I did my base coat and today I will paint the blue color I picked out. It's coming right along, hopefully it all turns out how I hope!

Sometimes painting, restaining and refinishing can be such a pain, but the end result is so worth it, don't you think?

Can't wait to see the finished project...that inspiration room is GOR-GEOUS!

So much work, but so fun! I have been lurking on craigslist all morning and finally found a storage bench/ottoman thing for a steal and am so excited about starting a new project. Woohoo!

Oooo, I love your inspiration room. Good luck with the painting. That reminds me I have some furniture in need of a facelift. Good luck!

YAY!!! That's it, Tara! GO FOR IT! I can't wait to see the next step. I love “instant gratification” projects like this... you’ve really given me the bug to start something!

Keep going!
