Helping a Friend

One of my favorite things to do is help others see potential in things. I love showing that you don't have to spend a fortune to make something beautifully your own.
So you can imagine when a good friend called me and asked me to help her with some projects, I was elated. It seems like once you do a piece and realize how easy and transforming it is, it becomes an addiction.

So we set out on the hunt for some end tables and other items to start out. 
And guess what? 

That is right folks, I saw a sign a day or so later that said free items. So I spun my mini van around and stopped. And there they were...two end tables perfect for our project!

So I took them to her house and she prepped them to be painted.

And of course you know my reaction when she choose black paint....HELLO...

A few coats of the black and they were finished.
I left shortly after we painted them. But couldn't wait to see what she did with them!
Great job Anna! I love how you decorated them!
Here is a little sample of one!

The best thing about creating is that we get to make it our own. 
And she did a beautiful job making it fit her beautiful home!


  1. How cute, I love finding free stuff!

  2. Seriously Swooning!!! Great job! I can't wait to pop in at Anna's and see them!!

  3. I wish I was that lucky and just happened to drive by a bunch of free stuff! The tables turned out great!


We are so glad you stopped by our blog! We hope you feel motivated, inspired, and excited to create something Fabulous of your own! We appreciate and love feedback!!
