Money is pretty tight around here (I'm sure pretty much anyone can relate). 

Our 12 year old furniture has taken a beating since our men have entered our family, so I decided to try to update the look of our living room a bit by refinishing our tables.

Thank goodness for my crafty friend Katie, who taught me via text message how this process should be done.  Busy moms have a hard time actually connecting live on the phone!

An attempt to show how beat up the coffee table was:

And after weeks of trial and error work and a big fat mess in the basement:

Unfortunately, there is a matching armoire that needs to match the new look but I have no idea where I'll find the time!


  1. You are AMAZING!!! Can't wait to see your new tables in person.

  2. That turned out AWESOME!! Great job! I'd tackle the next one after Christmas...Good luck finding time!

  3. Told you that you have God given talents. That's my daughter - she can do anything.

  4. You are so CITY!

    They look great. I have some bunkbeds you could do next (in your spare time) :)

    Have me over so I can put my feet on them while I crochet. Sounds fun.

    your sweet and innocent friend,

  5. WOW! I am soooo impressed! Way to go!

  6. you should start a your spare time!

  7. Wow they look great!!! Let's see how long it takes you surrounding men to make them look like crap again!!! LOL ;-)

  8. Those look awesome! Absolutely fabo. I'd love to know how it's done...

  9. told you you would rock them!! You did awesome...did you get some extra love for that project and money saving skills? :)


About Me

My photo
Messy and wonderful perfectly describes my life as a wife and mom of five. I'm passionate about advocating for orphans by telling their stories and encouraging adoption and orphan care. My schedule is messy and wonderful as I am charged with four sons and one daughter. We love living in our little mountain ski town. We do a little camping, a little skiing, a little hunting, and a lot of laughing and loving. Life is dirty and loud around here but we wouldn't want it any other way. Okay, maybe a little less dirty!
