Steamed Rice Smell: Bad..New Sidetables: Beautiful

The beautiful thing about working on so many projects at once is that they are all at the same stage at the same time which is good and bad..so, altho I primed and sanded 5 pieces at once (bad), today I decorative painted 5 pieces at once (so good) I rotated in a circle when I needed time for paint to dry on whichever piece..it was perfect!

These babies I just finshed yesterday and want to keep so badly but alas, story of my life....I dont have the space..as I dont get rid of the other "loves" I have around here..and wont.....yet *smile*

In any case, drumroll....

The Before:

These guys were smelly...like steamed rice and old people...*dont mean to offend anyone who eats steamed rice or is an older-ish type person* Im just keeping it honest here.....


The power of a good Primer plus good ol soap and water makes amazing, lovely and smelly fresh furniture! 

I love how these turned out. With my very first ever Lowe's "Oops" paint purchase of a gray-teal-ish color and a good thuro cleaning..well,thats all these babies needed and I think, they are bea-ut-i-ful~
