On Saturday I had this brilliant idea to paint & stain our kitchen table.  It needed a little makeover.  After we got home from church, I asked Jordan if he could help me carry the table to the garage.  And I got that look saying Steffi, I kind of just want to relax and I can see you asking me to help you paint & stain since you don't know what you're doing.  But guess what?  I did this all by myself.  I did get a little impatient during the process, but thankfully I'm going for the shabby chic/vintage look so you can't tell I messed up!

Here is the process:
1. I sanded the table
 2. Then I painted it
 3. Then I rubbed the stain with the grains of the table
 4. Then I stained the chairs
 5. Then I added a little table jewelry (It's still in my garage because the smell was pretty strong and I didn't want James inhaling it)

The best part was that it was free!  We had the paint & stain already..
