Roll with it

Thirty-six minutes. Just 36 minutes - that's all that stands between me and a rescheduled "Eat Pray Love Date." Indian buffet, the movie, a little gelato frozen yogurt. It's going to be fabulous.

And I can't wait. Or at least I'm having a hard time doing so.

To keep my mind off the Indian buffet and on something productive, I decided to give the dining room table a fresh coat of paint.

I picked up the bad boy at a garage sale three years ago for $20, and it has since been brown then white and now a robin's egg blue color, which made it's debut last summer. Shortly after the paint went on, my mother-in-law so graciously spilled her red wine on the table. Nice little stain ... and a nice little reminder as to why I should have sealed the dern thing.

It's been covered with a tablecloth ever since. Just waiting for the day when I could give it a fresh coat. Today seemed as good a day as any so I got the can of paint and roller kit out of the closet and I got to work.

I swear this is not a snuggie. It's an old fleece that I wore backward as to protect my shirt. By the way, my mom would surely be upset with me if she knew I used her Christmas gift as a paint smock.

It took me all of about 5 minutes to give the table a fresh coat and go over it again to make sure I didn't miss any spots. It was such an easy project that it made me wonder why I've waited so long to do it.

Unfortunately, it was such an easy project that I'm now back to thinking of Indian food and frozen yogurt.

Do you like Indian food? What's your favorite dish?

  1. I had always thought that I hated Indian food until last year when my 3 Elles (see blog) went out to the restaurant just down from Fresh Market. I had "chicken and mushrooms" and found it to be amazing! Have fun on your "date".
