A Little DIY

If you know me at all, you know that I am not a very crafty person. I am not good at creating, decorating, painting, etc. WELL since I am sick of our house looking like a bachelor pad and having EVERYTHING mis-matched I decided I would take matters into my own hands.

I have lined up a couple do-it-yourself projects. Craig is working a lot and I know he just doesn't have the time to help me.

Project #1:
Paint the hallway. It has turned from white to a nasty-dirty brownish color from where the dogs rub up against it. Not appealing.

Project #2:
Paint the dining room table BLACK. It is currently an UGLY maple color that I LOATH. I figure even if the paint job isn't perfect it can't look any worse than it already does!

Project #3:
Paint the dog-distressed ("dog-distressed" stands for dogs scratching the crap out of it when they get excited that someone is at the door... this is bound to happen again but at least it will look better for now!) end table in the living room BLACK also. This one should be pretty easy. It's small and doesn't have a lot of nooks and cranny's to get into!

If that all goes smoothly I would also like to paint the dressers in the bedroom! We shall see. I will keep you updated with some before and after pics. Please pray for me! LOL
