I'm trying to choose a colour to paint my new-to-me table. Yup! I did it! A dining table for under $200. Not only do-able but super easy and I think I excelled.
I have broken my hibernation and have been leaving the house... even at night! ..oooh yeah. Dinner in Daylesford reaped the reward of a lovely evening with friends and also in mentioning my great table mission up popped an opportunity! So, one weekend later and I am proud owner of a 'new-to-me-bought-from-a-green's-party-fundraiser'dining table. For just $50!
Lucky really as my budget was blown when discovering that my bottled gas has run out whilst taking a very cold pre-table-shopping shower.... brrr. So at just $50 for the table I can also get gas, and therefore hot water as well. Thing is, I ordered a new bottle on Sat and it still hasn't arrived. If you spot me in the street this week excuse me for being a bit stinky!
Back to the table, I think I am leaning towards a blue/grey at the moment, I'm diggin these duck-egg tones and ever helpful Allison has lent me these colour swatch books to help in the painful-to-me colour choosing process. I'm often unlucky with paint and just a smidgen off the shade I want takes me right back to the paint shop.
