A Day at Home with Quickies

Written By petite karinne on Friday, February 14, 2014 | 10:21 AM

All snowed in on this Valentines Day and nothing better to do, why not fit in a few quickies!  
Paint brush and screwdriver in hands can send the mind in a whirl wind... oh yah, baby, what can I do now?  
Looking around the house...for a few ideas... rockin' the tools...  
BINGO! 

Remember my living room posts all coming together with all that black jazz schnazz?  It makes this bad boy look lonely and sad, so I decided to let him join the party. 

This is a Mexican Pine table that was in the raw when I bought it way back. All I did was poly coat it.  I love the rusty hinges and doo dad accents. I can't part with this guy. And he holds a lot of storage.

Some black glaze... Brush on
...wipe off. Just like the ad.  You can sing it while you do it.  Go ahead, rock it~


... looking all like caught on fire and put out. That's what I was after. 

Oh yah,  that's what I'm talking about. Getting all that distinguished looking on me. 

Yah, I'm eyeing you.  
Making sure all of those cracks and dings got a kiss of paint too. 

A quick coat of lacquer and we are done.  BAYUM!

Sitting there all... all good looking. 






How about another? Remember the hanging pots and pans rack that I upcycled and used those white glass shades? Ah-hah! I'll do some more shades!

Recap: Thrift shop find. I needed those globes.

Not the color I needed. Whipped up some wood stain with a little red food color and poly... and whipped it good! Go ahead, sing it to DEVO~ 

A couple of coats waiting for that amber color... 


And wha-la~  





Well let's get this one done too! 


Oh yes, all warmed up. 

Look up there. I can't leave this one out! 

Over the top, 
Why not? 





Want one more? Yah, me too. 

Many of us have these  boring TV tray tables.  Well mine is naked. 

Just a cover up the top, spray the bottom.

A good coat of wipe on quick dry water base stain. And BAM!
Got dressed real quick. 

Actually that was the first one before the storm yesterday.

Colorful is better. All cozy feelin' 

Ready for that romantic snowed in dinner.

No fuss and no mess!


So joking! Pork tenderloin will be served at the kitchen table. ;)  





Snow is blowing around and drifting up against the sliding glass door today.
(It finally stopped snowing. )




Have a great Valentines Day~


(Psst some sweet somethin' in your ear... the door is a Craigslist find that I refinished and my Dad hung it.
Saved about $900 on this sexy thang.)

Party Time












What? You gotta go? I'm so happy you stopped by! Say "see ya later" and give me a hug first!  I'll just squeeze ya back!
