So, flashback to last week, me at Home Depot with my dad. I convince him to buy me a coral spray paint, and say that I will pay him back, (I have yet to pay him back). I return with the coral spray paint, and go to town.
Now, my grandpa bought me an easel at a garage sale for $10, and it overwhelmed me. The entire thing was covered in ugly brown paint, and it was hideous. Don't worry, I'll spare your eyes the horror, but only because I am the queen of forgetting before pictures.
The easel was then stripped down to the wood, and it was just so beautiful I decided I was going to keep it. I stained it English Walnut, because it was in my "inventory" (i.e. free), and I liked the name.
Also at the garage sale, was a stool that was picked up for free along with the easel. I stained the top the same color, and spray painted the bottom, you guessed it, coral. And now it looks amazing.
Plus, I took off the ends of my curtain rods and made those coral too!
