Since the holidays I haven't been able to do much in the DIY world, but months back, I mentioned I had several DIY projects to share with you. So here's is one of my favorites, that was successful thanks to my husband! Needless to say my summer and fall garage sale finds didn't end with just Martha Stewart books, I also found this little treasure of a table for $10:
Pretty bad condition, eh? I know. Most people probably wouldn't want the hassel of reworking this piece over, but I was convinced it would be gorgeous...refinished black! Josh sanded down the table, then I took a turn at sanding it down...here it is just before the painting:
We have mainly dark wood in our home, so I wanted a bit of change to get an eclectic taste for our living room:
Ta da...a nice black finish! I'm loving it. We've gotten more compliments on that piece of furniture. Most folks are surprised when I tell them we redid it...and it was just an 'ol garage sale find. I thought it was worth $10...er $13 after the spray paint cost!
So that's are latest DIY in the Southern Bride household...have you guys been up to anything?
So I digress...I'm an old soul. I even secretly would enjoy an old record player to dance to when no one is watching. Since I'm in the old soul funk today, I think I'll enjoy some Leave It To Beaver and dream of Soda Fountain days gone by. ;-)

PS...please tell me I'm not the only old soul trapped in a young body out there!
