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...
