Teacup & Table

It seems pretty easy to get started on such a simple project.  The reality is you have to take inventory of what you will need from start to finish.  Nothing kills the joy of an afternoon project than missing key pieces  to get the project moving.  Taking inventory here of what I need:

In the upper left you will see some sandpaper.  Brushing off the extra bumps, dirt, and loose parts of the finish. I am not a “play by rules” kind of furniture painter.  This you must know up front.  I am a do it as fast, as easy  and if no one is playing with the piece, licking it, or moving it around then a general soft sanding is fine with me.  I have my rollers ready too. These are removable and washable.  Acrylic color samples that will be the colors  for the flowers on the table. One can of white spray paint. (The rollers help smooth out the parts I overspray)  And the inspiration piece is the Teacup. Total cost for spray paint, rollers, and sand paper $14.50.  Misc paint colors on hand and now I am ready to paint this:

This lovely table I picked up a a garage sale for about $8.00. All the screws are tight making this a very stable table to hold a lovely lamp for later.  Now that I have every thing all ready to go. STEP TWO will follow in a separate post.
In case you did not notice the placement in which I have laid out my supplies and the area rug are pieces from my breakfast area.  Over and over people ask where I got those lovely place-mats? I bought $16.00 of them at Dollar Tree about a year ago. One of my better finds since a local design shop had close to the same bamboo placements for $12.00 each. I was going to buy the more expensive ones because I knew I would get the mileage, use and function out of them. Turns out that bamboo that cost a dollar works just as fine too.  The area rug is by our back door which ties in with the place-mats. Another inexpensive clearance item from Target.  I love when I can find things in random places that work together.

Shopping with @eetraub and sitting on this guy. I laugh ALOT with this anazing kid. Wearing my 30 year old son's hand-me-down. I am okay with that. #lumberjackstyle <~~ An actual legit hastag. After years of being in retail I pretty much made sure most of my Christmas shopping was done and wrapped by Thanksgiving. Some things never change. #noshame #christmaspresents🎁 
If anyone is tossing any #nutcracker themed decorations please let me know. The #TraubBoys are decorating and this is their theme. I know it is both a gift and a blessing to do life with these two. @elliototteson & @sarahotteson it is a  joy to be your mama. #HappyBirthday Elliot.
