I have a secret.
I have always been afraid of painting furniture.
Shhhhh….don’t tell anyone.
I have many irrational fears.
– movie theaters
– home improvement stores
-Wal Mart on a weekend afternoon
But painting furniture is at the top of that list.
For years I have seen many a blogger renovate their furniture by taking Goodwill pieces and transforming them into treasures beyond belief. I mean really, who can turn a 70’s craptastic coffee table into something that would make you squeal with joy??
Not me, that’s for sure.
And I have lots of craptastic furniture in my home right now that totally needs to be transformed.
I have end tables that look like something off the set of Three’s Company and have I done anything with them?
My mom has mentioned many a time..” you know, you could paint those….” in the nicest of ways.
Yes, I know I could.
But I have always been afraid.
Afraid that it will cost me more money to paint it than buying it new or semi-new.
Afraid that it will end up looking like the misshapen pig cutting board I made in Wood Shop in 8th grade.
Afraid that I might be ever so consumed by the paint and primer fumes that I would end up dancing the pachanga in my driveway to the horror of my neighbors.
No, not horror.
To the amusement of my neighbors.
So when rearranging furniture in the basement for the big re-do, I wanted to create a desk area for our laptops/iPods so that the cords weren’t all over the place.
Case in point:
So this guy went to the basement and became the computer table.
Bring on the 70’s craptastic furniture. I am no longer afraid.
