Home Improvement

I am admittedly a horrible painter. The only things I have ever painted successfully were the doors in my house and that really wasn't too terribly difficult. Despite this, I have decided to embark on a major painting project in my home office. Right now my office is not the most inviting room in the house; it's terribly cluttered and the furniture in it is a collection of random pieces that I have acquired over the years. After much consideration, I've decided to go with a black, white and pink colour scheme in the room. My first order of business was my sewing table. It started as a boring brown colour with old fashioned hardware, and now it is modern and bright looking. I used two coats of spray on primer and two coats of white paint applied with a brush. I changed the hardware to crystal knobs and voila - a brand new sewing table for less than $15!
