From Shabby to Shabby Chic - Julie's Kitchen Table

My boss and friend Julie just bought a house (congrats!). The house is wonderful, but the old furniture was...not quite so wonderful. 

It's not that bad I guess, but she definitely wanted something new and fun. 

Derek and Emma worked hard to help. It took all the man power we had. Whatever finish was on the table before was not willing to come off. 

 After a lot of sanding, the white finally came off and I was able to paint.

The paint used was Freshwater by Sherwin Williams. I coated it with Provincial Minwas Stain.

It's hard to see how it really looks from far away. I think it turned out alright. 

This is the full set that is sitting in her kitchen now (minus the two white chairs that I still need to finish). 

 All in all, it was a LONG day, but it was worth it. I'd do it again.
Brax slept through most the work. He claims he was watching TV when he fell asleep, but the TV wasn't ever on.

Pictures with Quotes

Nathan asked for some backgrounds for the mission ipad. He wanted something nice that keeps the spirit of his mission. These are what I made. (and by made, I mean that I threw a quote over a photo I took ages ago.)

As I look back at them, I realize I used one quote twice. It's a good quote.
