Apartment Sprucing and Giveaway Results

So I recently came into a little bit of money due to selling stuff on Craigslist and the like. I'm trying to cover the walls in the apartment, so I bought a few things to spruce up the place.


Also, I'm excited to finally share this with you!
Over spring break, I found this awesome drop leaf table outside our apartment trashcan, and immediately fell in love.
I had been keeping my eyes peeled for a bigger table, but we have a tiny little dining area and not just any table would fit. Drop leaf, you say? Free, you say? Deal, I say!
It needed a fresh coat of paint, but, my hubby and I's new chalkboard paint obsession solved that quickly enough.
 I bought a pint of chalkboard paint for $10 at Home Depot and slapped it on.*
*With proper protection for my baby girl, of course. 

Two coats of paint, 3 days before "conditioning", and 20 minutes of fun little playground games later, we had this! I'm so in love with it, I can't even tell you. :)


 Wiped off and folded down, it's the perfect size for 2. 


Canvas Giveaway Results!
Instead of doing a video or explaining how I did it, here are the step-by-step photos of how it happened. =]





Congrats, Katie! I'll be contacting you to find out when we can get together so I can give you your prize! =]

If you're not Katie, don't worry. Another exciting giveaway will be happening soon! Look for it next week. ;)
