Although we've schooled throughout the summer; we kept to a light and casual regime. Now it's time for some serious fun! To honor our school year I decided to freshen up our work area. We are very blessed to have a nice sized area with loads of natural light and lovely views and after our hard work of cleaning out and decorating Elaina and I are very happy with the results.
The new part is the table and de-cluttering. We had the big table but is was a big rectangle with pointy edges that hurt every time an unsuspecting soul walked by. Also, it was boring white. So, I cut off the corners after making a curve with a salad plate, sanded, primed, and painted it a nice calm green. Believe me, we need calming green. Then we found this nifty trim at Home Depot for under $10! It was the perfect color repeating the green in the chairs and the mandatory pink required by the student body. It's just like fancy contact paper. Super easy to apply. Last I put on 6 light coats of polyacrylic sanding lightly between each coat.
Now it's beautiful, durable and not pointy! We love it!
Time for new discoveries!
