I read some interior design/crafty blogs, and I really wish I had talents to re-do furniture and re-decorate rooms and all of that. Well, now that my work has slowed down I am starting to attempt a few projects to improve our home. The few things I have done so far have turned out ok and I've made lots of mistakes, but I figure I'm learning a lot in the process.
Here is my first go at a big project. I bought this table and hutch at a yard sale for $25 about a year ago. (Remember that Saturday morning run, girls?) I painted it and mod-podged scrapbook paper to it to create new storage for the toys in our playroom.
I didn't have a good "before" photo, but it was black.
I seriously love that the boys can't reach all their toys now; makes it a lot easier to keep things tidy.
