Good morning everyone!

Hope you had a nice weekend.

We had a lovely weekend which we spent with family. We also had the most gorgeous weather which seems to be continuing into this week. It's beautiful this morning.

I wanted to show you a painting project that I started and finished a few weeks ago. I painted a small lamp table that was old and scratched and needed some fresh paint. The other project was a vintage tool box (not actually husband made it, but I wanted it to look vintage).

The brown table on the right was the way the table looked before.

You can also see the brown tool box before. A coat of primer, first.

Here is the finished table. I painted it red. It now stands in our foyer with a small lamp.

And here is the new old vintage tool box painted a mustard yellow with an undercoating of a colonial blue. I put some nicks and scrapes on it to make it look older.

I'm using it for a garden box.

Both projects were so easy, and once again, paint comes to the rescue.

Enjoy your day wherever you are!

Both of your projects turned out great. The garden box looks so cute with your clogs and seed packets. Isn't our weather gorgeous?

I love a paint transformation and your table and garden box turned out great. I distress most everything I paint! Today the weather is gorgeous here, time to plant some flowers. ;-)

Great job on the table and the workbox! I especially like the picture with the garden stuff in the workbox. The light on that is beautiful!
