Try Try Again

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again........sound familiar? Back in April I purchased these two little odd size tables for a great price. I quickly restyled them and I just wasn't "feeling it." I'm feeling it now!



I thought it would be a good idea to restyle each table differently NOT!

Re-Newed and Improved
I really like the stencil in the center of each table




I used ASCP Old White and Duck Egg Blue.
I usually keep my blogging and projects very short, sweet and to the point but this post I have something to say.  I recently subscribed to This Old House Magazine and in it was a great tip and I just want to pass it along. After cleaning your brushes apply a small amount of hair conditioner and rinse, I'm telling you this makes a huge difference your brushes are like NEW!

I'll see you tomorrow :)
