A Little Entertainment

When my sister arrived she asked what projects I wanted todo while she was here. A little entertainment if you will. I mentioned that I had been wanting to paint my wall of furniture that were varying shades of fake wood brown. She was all for it. The plan was to paint them a non-committal, but very in style white. It is my safe color for "wood" furniture. That plan got nixed by my sister, so out came a bright turquoise blue. We gave these two old and falling apart beauties new life while she was here.

We used a small roller and brush to paint. Then we sprayed it with a sealer the guy at Home Depot sold me. I have to tell you that I love how alive it makes my living room. As nerve racking as it was to commit to a bold color the results is wonderful and helps by heading me in a much need direction. 

I give my sister full credit for this project as it would not have happened for a long time if she hadn't come to visit. Thank you Amber for encouraging and helping me to make my living room look ten times better. 

The only thing left to paint on my wall of furniture is the desk (shown below), but that is going to have a little more to is than a solid color. I am so excited for the weather to warm up again so I can attack it with lots of love.
