~ Keeping it in the Family ~

What young couple just starting out on their first adventure of home ownership doesn't have at least one piece of furniture that belonged to their parents - or maybe even grandparents?

These little end tables have belonged to my mom since...oh I don't know? at least 20 years. After sitting in her barn for forever they have found a new residence at our home.

They didn't really go with the couch set we bought and so out came...what else but the spray paint!!! After some primers, paint, a little bit of distressing, and a few coats of poly and these little babies were good to go.

Will they stay there forever? Who knows. But for now they are a good home to Wii accessories, diapers, wipes, scriptures, Cd's (hey those baskets can really hold quite a bit of stuff!!!), and whatever else happens to get tossed in there.

For now they are the perfect addition to our family room.
Shame on me for not getting a 'before' picture - or maybe I did and I just can't find it - oops :)
