Almost two weeks ago, I referred to this little family below as "charming." I got quite the earful from my hubby's facebook friends about this as he wondered out loud how much this "charm" was going to cost him. If I remember correctly, someone said "Run Forrest! Run!" That one actually made me laugh, but what do YOU think? Can you see it?

Well, I saw it. And, I'm not normally one who can envision these kinds of things, but I see them (finished) in other peoples houses and I love them! So, with the go-ahead from the hubby, a can of paint and one very sore back later, I have THIS:


I finished up this BIG project on Monday. Yesterday, the hubby and I moved the table in from the garage and got everything in place (I am sore today. How sad is that!?!). For $50 bucks plus another $50 in supplies {probably wouldn't have been so much if I wouldn't have spent $20 buying green paint "samples"} I got a brand new kitchen table and 4 chairs! I finally took the plunge with this color:


Then we moved the other table into the dining room, so after about 5 years that room has furniture. Yay! The new table pictured above is minus one other leaf that it came with. I think that is a pretty good deal for the money. Now we can seat at least 6 more people during big family get-togethers.
So, do you think it's a good sign when your husband says, "I wonder how much you could sell if for now?" Such a guys mentality. But. I took it as a compliment...


  1. I love your table! What a great find and a great re-do! Good work!


  2. Ambs--it turned out AWESOME!! So impressed! Wish I could see the green color better, but it is so cute and looks great in your kitchen! You could get a lot more than what you paid for for that that's for sure!!

  3. I love it! Way to go Amber sooo cute!

  4. For real? You are so talented! It looks great in your kitchen. I was hoping to see the white table at home in the dining room. Pictures of that someday soon? GREAT JOB!!

  5. Nicely done. I would have never guessed it would turn out so good from the before picture. I love your choice of paint color and wood finish.

  6. Love how it turned out. And I love the green...so cute!
    P.S. I finished my entry wall. I think I like it.

  7. Yay! It's done. And I love it. Let me know if you ever find something like it :)

  8. Great job! I'm very impressed with your redo!

  9. Fabulous! I was looking forward to see the charm and, yes, it is Charm with a capital "C!"
