Painting project 101

I'm constantly being teased by my husband, friends, and family that our house is "always changing". My response, "I like to keep things fresh".

I usually do a big switchieroo when my husband's out of town for a few days.
Guess what? He's in Vegas and I'm itching to get started on my next project.

I mentioned in my last post that I'm going to paint my dining table white, I hope in time for the holidays.
Can anyone recommend blogs or help that may get me started with the painting wood process? Thanks for taking the time to read my blog and for sharing any comments you may have!


  1. I recently painted my table white and have never looked back! I just wonder what took me so long! Just lightly sand it and then do a good job with the primer! I just used spray paint and it worked great!

  2. Thanks! Hope it's as easy as it sounds.
    Any color suggestions????

  3. did you do it yet? I used cottage white (i think that's what it's called) from home depot. ANd then we put a coat of varnish from a spray can over the top. Your house is so cute! I think that your table painted white will just make it! I hope you show pics!

  4. Thanks! I'm just waiting to put the varnish on. I'll post pics as soon as I'm done.
