Leslie over at , has this going on Wednesdays, I'm a day late, but better than never!! are rubbing off on me big time! LOL I had this ugly stand that I bought at a yard sale for $5.00 a few years ago, and it served it's purpose, but I hated it!

I wanted something to hold my light for when I cross-stitch in the evenings, or sew, in the den...anyway, I intended to donate this to the Thrift Shop, but needed to get something to replace it first...then it donned on me! Paint it!! So I did!! I'm really liking it!

I don't like how the photo turned out, but I am not going back up to the den to take a new photo at the moment...LOL, so for now this will have to do. I'm very happy with it.

Also, on a side note...our pool is finally up!! We usually have it set up before now, but weather just wasn't cooperating, so we waited. Sara and I were in was very refreshing!!!

Have a great evening everyone!

It looks great :) Slap some paint on something you don't like and you have something you can LOVE :)

We haven't been in our pool much in the last week. I need to vaccum at this point, thanks to all of the rain and bugs and leaves that blew in there. I hate that part of having a pool. Normally I'm pretty lucky and don't have to worry about it...not this year!

It's okay that you're late. I will forgive you :) I'm just NOW reading it because I bave been so crazy busy! Sorry I didn't see it sooner!

Thanks for participating!

Have a great day!
