DIY Painted Red Table in 2 Coats!

This table has such amazing lines.  It was given to me by some friends who were downsizing.  I almost didn’t want to paint it because it was hand made years ago back as a high school wood working project.  After I thought about it long and hard, I decided on some paint.  I wanted a dramatic colour, but was undecided between red, blue, yellow or black.  So I asked you!  And by very popular vote, red was that winner.

I am constantly looking for potential.  For inspiration from something old or unwanted.  One day I was searching Craigslist like I do and came across a coffee table and side table!  For only $20!  I emailed the guy and picked them up that day.  I just loved the lines of the legs.  I was excited to start refinishing these pieces!

DIY Drawer turned Shoe Rack

My daughter has more shoes then my entire house hold put together.  And she’s only 2!  After our fire, we had so much amazing support from the community and Myra didn’t go with out a thing, especially shoes!  I needed to come up with a solution, the floor just wasn’t cutting it any more.  I had picked up a couple of lonely drawers from a bid site one day with Myra’s shoes on my mind. Here’s a quick tutorial on a great kids shoe storage!

Because I use them all the time, I wanted to create a shelf that held and displayed them nicely.  And of course I’m thrifty, so this project cost under $10!
