I kept hearing people talk about Pinterest and could not figure out what the fuss was all about. I went to the site, looked around and thought it was nothing I would be interested in. On a recent visit with my dear friend she happened to mention Pinterest. Her explanation of what it is, changed my mind and now I am sad to say, I'm addicted.
She said it is a great place to keep track of you favorite things from the internet. That did it, considering I'm always saving things to my favorites on my computer, Pinterest puts them in nice little categories and I can follow my friends too. It can be your favorite pictures, places to go, recipes, anything you love. Give it a try, it's pretty cool.

I found these nighstands on Craigslist and sent my better half and hour long drive to get these and a matching dresser. I love the style and even though it was an incredibly long drive, the price was too good to pass up. The dresser has yet to be refinished. Quite frankly, it has been way too hot to do anything in my garage. But here is a look at the nighstands before and after. These nighstands could not be sanded down. They had a shiny type veneer on them, so I took my chances with these and just painted over it. I started with a white primer. ( Rustoleum 2X Ultra Cover ) I decided to let it dry for about a week before painting, just to reduce the risk of having the paint bubble up. I then used Rustoleum Gloss White to finish. This was also the Ultra Cover. I will probably put a gloss on top, but these tables will be in an extra bedroom and not getting too much use.
