A GW Redo!

Hi everyone! I took a little bloggy break over the weekend, Mr. K and I attended a dance for MS and had a great time with friends. I also worked Sat. and Sun and by 9 PM last night I was in bed…I feel great this morning though wish I could do that every night!
Remember this little plantstand I bought at GW for $2.99? Well, here it is after I did some work on it…

I don’t intend to keep it here in this spot but it’s a rainy, dreary day in Pa. and this was the only spot that got at least some decent light coming in.
I painted it Cottage White and then glazed over it with the acrylic dark brown paint and a medium, doesn’t show up well in the photo here but in the corners you can see a little bit of it.
I may use it outside this year to hold some pretty flowers from the greenhouse, Oh, I can’t wait to see some green and flowers hanging in baskets and grass that has just been mowed…sigh!
Here’s a little piece of sunshine!
My granddaughter Alex, who didn’t want to take the time to pose for a picture…she has my son’s eyes, a miracle that we sometimes forget to look for♥

I'm joining these fab parties:

Well, your little stand is ever so cute...but your little Alex is Beautiful!!! And she has those gorgeous eyes! Don't you love the "posed" smiles they give you when they don't really want you to take their pictures? lol

I love your little face of Sunshine, she's beautiful! Love the redone stand too along with the pot you have your pretty flowers in. By the way, can you hear mowers humming outside.... here's wishing Spring to hurry and spring;))

Watch out, Rondell might paint you white if you come any closer. LOL I can make fun because I am in the same boat as you as you transform prim into lighter and brighter. :) I love this little table so much better in it's new color! And definitely love the price! Thanks so much for linking up to Terrific Under Ten today!
