A little procrastinating goes a long way

So I've been itching to do something creative. Pull out the paints, get my hands dirty and turn something unused into something grand. OK, OK so my conscience keeps pulling me towards that half painted desk I purchased at a yard sale back in July!! I got the top painted, and a bit of the side then ran out of paint. I finally bought more (gulp), back in August! Sigh....I think I saw a notice of a procrastination party but was, yes, that's right, procrastinated to long and missed taking part. I swear, I'm my own worst enemy.

But with Fall and Halloween, and soon Christmas decorating I don't feel like painting a desk. I feel like getting into the spirit of things. No, not buying it? I'm just being lazy aren't I? I know, deep in my heart, I know that too. I also want to paint Cinnamon's wooden food stand. She is a messy drinker and there's starting to get water stains on it and it's looking yucky. But I can't for the life of me decide what color to paint it? I have a bit of red in my kitchen, should I do that? Or should I go with pink being that she's a girl, but that it wouldn't match my kitchen decor? Seriously, these are the questions that stump me! (If you have any ideas, I'd love to hear them. I'm going for the country cottage-y look).

OK, so back to my half done desk. I'm posting a very embarrassing picture, just to hold myself accountable. I hope you talented ladies can help keep me in line!

P.S. Yes, my goal is to eventually paint the chair as well and get a cushion for it.

Wishing you a great week!

  1. Hi marcia~ being a primitive lover myself ,I would have to say NO to pink, lol! My hubby built my " Kiah" a wooden eating stand and just stained it then put on 2 coats of polyurethane. She is a VERY messy drinker too, and the poly keeps the water from soaking into the wood:)There's a pic of it somewhere on my blog, not sure where tho. Love the desk ;)

  2. Oh I know how you feel. I have a potting table outside that I started to paint this summer and it's still out there waiting to be finished. I even have the paint! LOL

    Oh well, things get done sooner or later.


  3. Marcia, that desk is so cute, you just HAVE to finish it! Think how nice it will look with a cute little Christmas vignette on it:>)
