...and my friend named Cindy. She needed a red table to put by her chair in her room and it needed to be red, have drawers for storage and look a little distressed. Did I mention she's my best friend and I love her with all my heart...even though I call her Miranda Priestly. If you've seen The Devil Wears Prada, picture the "drop everything and do it now" tone and look,
and add it to a lady with a big 'Ol Amarillo heart!! Wow that's a lot to imagine but it sums her up.
Her mom is the 'Best Jam and Buscuit Maker in Amarillo' if that tells you anything about her upbringing (Hi Nana!) so you know she is special.
Where was I...oh yeah...she needed a table/cabinet of some sort so I was on the prowl.
I searched craigslist one day and found this CHEEP, sorry I meant Cheap table. A whole two dollars. I took a picture of the ad so you would believe me when I said two bucks.
Of course I bought it!! Here it is in it's rare form:
Now after two cans of Valspar Red paint. I bought three but two did just fine. I spray painted it all over. I normally would have done regular paint but it didn't work well on this piece nor give it the depth that the spray paint gave it.
See what I mean. Look at these drawers!!
And here it is after the coats of spray paint, faux glaze that I tinted black and new black handles to match!
Let's see if it fits the bill. She said she loved it but it still has to get her husband Rod's approval. Then I'll be satisfied.
Hope you like it,
