Yard Sale Find (Singular Again!)

I have just one yard sale find yet again this week, but it's a good one.

 I love the texture.

And the reason I have only one treasure to share with you?  Well, I didn't exactly find time to go yard sale-ing this weekend.  My mom picked up this little beauty for me.  I was much too busy doing this:
I convinced my husband that we should drag tons of furniture out to the garage and have a weekend-long painting party.  He was not thrilled with my suggestion, but went along anyway.  He's a keeper!

I don't know what y'all are going to think if I keep posting horrifying "in progress" photos like this, but I want you to see that DIYing -- at least the way I do it -- is never a clean, mess-free task.  Trying to keep it real here!

I have a saying..."it always gets worse before it get's better". This helps bring me some comfort when I'm in the middle of a project.

I'm looking forward to the pictures.

Blessings,

You have an awesome blog! My boyfriend and I just got a cute table off Craigslist and need to give it a fresh coat of white paint. What kind of paint do you recommend? Oil-based or spray paint? Should we sand it first? Thanks for all the great tips!
