A few weeks back I picked up a set of end tables and coffee table for my mom's gameroom. The green is way too country but it's just the style I was looking for. I decided to repaint the legs in flat black paint and then strip the tops for a more rustic feel.
Here are all the legs, primed waiting for paint.
For the tops I used a chemical stripper to take off the stain. I gave them a good sanding and then sealed them with a poly. I wanted to have them a more rustic look. Here they are with the black legs. Amazingly easy and they look fantastic!

After a preview of summer yesterday we're back to April showers today... I did manage to get some flowers planted before all the rain, so it's looking more and more like Spring around here. I thought I'd share my spring mantel today. Hope it's dry where you are!

I wanted to do a little Easter decor for my house. I'm not big on all the bunnies and eggs but thought my home needed a little something. So I found this egg wreath in the dollar section at Target and knew it was exactly what I needed.
I decided to remove all the eggs and cover them in glitter! I used a toothpick to hold the eggs while I used a brush to cover them in Tacky Glue. Then I covered them in some gorgeous Martha Stewart glitter. I picked white gold for this project because it has more of the vintage feel I was looking for.
I let them dry overnight to secure all the glitter. Then I used a little hot glue to attach them to this little nest I found at Michaels. I thought it would look adorable under a glass cloche on top of the trunk in my entry.
I loved the look so much that I ended up covering all the eggs and putting the extras in a pedestal bowl on my dining table.
