Tables and Glitter!

I might not have been journal busy lately, but I sure have been project and life busy!! I finally finished the sofa table! I love it. It might actually be a little tall for the sofa, but I am fine with that . . . I might just have to get a new sofa to match my $20 table redo!! 

After a couple coats of General Finishes gel stain and a couple coats of their gel polyacrylic, I love it!!  The Annie Sloan chalk paint, just adds to the love!!   I also refinished an old stool that we had in the pantry and I have a desk that is going to meet the stain and paint in the next few weeks!! I love it!

The Gel Stain was super easy to apply!! I haven't ever applied a stain before and if it is this easy, then I am hooked!!

My project this morning was goody boxes for Julia's gymnastics team and all I had were these little gift boxes from Michaels.  But . . . as usual I am running behind and I need these boxes for tonight.  That means no paint or time to carefully cut out paper.  So I saw this idea on pintrest . . . of course I had to try it!!  I coated the top of the boxes with quick dry glue and dipped them in glitter! They look like I took a lot of time to make them . . . um, but really 5 mintues!! Love the easy stuff!!  And now . . . to sweep the floors!!
