I Keep Finding Things To Paint

It seems that once I start painting
I just want to keep going.
I am looking around my house for things
That need to be painted. . . .
I know you are tired of seeing my paint projects
But, please indulge me. . . .
Here is the latest completed paint job

It started out looking like this
 I really like this plant stand,
I think I got it at Wal-Mart many years ago.
When I got it the deep dark green was the "in" color
Well, I am not into that color anymore. . . . moved to a new one.
It has been in use for all these years,
 and it had a few scuff marks.
 This is how it looks now. . .
I am very pleased with it and it looks great in my home.
 I used the same color I used on the B-Buffet
Martha Stewart's
Faded Ink
Then I glazed it with Ralph Lauren
Poplar Island
 I like the natural top
So, I just brightened it up with
Min-Wax- Provincial
It really looks much better.
Almost like new, only better!
It is fun when you take something you already have
Change the color. . . and you feel like you have
 something brand new.
I did this for nothing. . . I already had the paint and the glaze.
Well, I am off to see what else I can change with paint.
