Dark Stain to Bright White Sofa Table: Before and After

diningroomaftercollage2.2

I seriously think I could paint every stained piece of furniture I own a shade of white.  With hardwood floors and dark furniture I need to brighten it up!  I love this transformation of a sofa table/book case.  I moved it from our master bedroom to the dining room. I love what less than a quart of paint can do to transform.  Here is the dining room as of 3 weeks ago: all the furniture is dark wood.  Check out the before pictures of the dining room here.  FYI.. in this photo the  room looks like 1978 powder blue eye shadow worn by my mother,  but it’s more gray than blue.

Painting the table in the bathroom.  I was multi-tasking! You don’t want to know! Kidding!

Saturday Soundoff: Would you greet your sister’s guests in a swim suit?

And, I begin and end with this question: How would you feel if your sister wore this while hosting your bridal shower? Notice the guests in the background. Everyone else wore shorts, cover-ups or dresses.

I just can’t get past the hygiene issue of serving and eating food while wearing a bathing suit. I mean the kiddie pool and Cheetos is one thing, but a bridal shower?   Hey, I love casual get togethers and I am thrilled Jessica is in great shape, but to a bridal shower? Seriously?? Leave me a comment!!!
