Bigger Better Dining Room Table

One day last week I was driving home from the gym and when I pulled in the neighborhood someone had all their furniture out on the lawn.
I was unsure if they were installing new carpet or getting evicted. 
I did a slowwwww drive by and spotted a price tag on a dining room table, obviously I had to stop.
You can't beat only having to haul it half a mile.

My previous table only sat 4 and I really needed 6 chairs.



After dragging it home I hightailed it to Home Depot {my husband may have threatened my life if I didn't get it done over the weekend. He's weird about the garage being all filled up with my projects.}

I SWEAR to you I was going with an open mind.


My original plan was to do a grey table with white chairs.
BUT after standing in front of all those pretty paint chips, I just couldn't ignore what my heart was telling me.


Yes, it's pink, well watermelon actually.
I have no defense, don't judge me, I love color.


Helpful tip: When spray painting 6 chairs in the yard make sure your husbands BLACK truck isn't getting any blow back. Oops.



I painted {3.5 coats!} on the table, spray painted and covered the chairs, all in a weekend.
My right hand is killing me and I have a blister from the staple gun.
The things I do for my husband a pretty table!


Bambina told me she loves it.



You want to know the one thing in the room my Husband hates?
The bench under the window.
Seriously, I have a pink dining room table overlooked by a cross dressing deer and THAT'S what bothers you??

Happy Hump Day!

*the stencil on the wall is from Cutting Edge Stencils, love them!

  1. You seriously have the BEST decor!!!! Maybe one year I should save up and play "house" dress up in the summer. I never see that happening, but a girl can dream.

  2. So colorful!! My husband lets me get away with a lot but I don't know if I could do a pink table. My daughter would definitely love it!! She said she wanted a pink house one day (after seeing a small pink, purple and teal house in town). I told her we'll have to build her something some day...

  8. Wow, I LOVE it! I cannot believe your husband lets you put those colors in your house, mine would kill me! I'm super impressed that you can get all of that done in one weekend. We're lucky if we can get a room painted in a weekend!! I really need you to come to Indiana and help me decorate my living room (we'd just have to stay away from the girly colors, boo!)

  31. Question, I want to redo our table. DO you need to sand everything before you paint? and do you put a bottom and top coat on? (sounds like we are doing nails, ha)
