An updated look.....

Good morning and happy Sunday!  We've been enjoying our weekend and trying to stay upbeat about our beloved "Tigers" and hoping they'll pull in a win tonight.  It's been pretty darn disappointing up this point watching them during the World Series.  

I hope you having a great weekend!  It's hard to believe that Halloween is around the corner.  My son is looking forward to trick-or-treating and all it's festivities.  We hosted a small "kid" party this past Friday, which was a lot of fun.  We enjoyed some yummy treats and participated in a few Halloween games.  

I found this end table at a garage sale awhile back.  I love the shape and size of it and has some great details.  It was pretty beat up on the top of the I decided that I would give it an update.  I decided on the color black.   I gave it a quick cleaning and then a coat of primer.  After allowing the primer to cure, I applied several coats of black latex paint.  I then used polyacrylic to seal the paint.  I decided not to distress this table.  I'm happy with the way it turned out.........hopefully someone else will love it too, as it is now in our "booth space"! 

Enjoy your Sunday!
