My up-cycled "Teal Top Table" & some fabulous news

Let me start with the VERY exciting news----drum roll please----my silhouette and I are on speaking terms again!!!!!!!!!!!!!  
Now don't think I am crazy just let, let me see I have had my "dream machine" as I fondly called it (before it arrived and I attempted to use it---the first time) for about 3 months and have never successfully used it until today!  The first attempt was a complete flop which took place soon after my dream machine arrived at my front door (a wonderfully thoughtful and AMAZING gift I got for myself for passing all of my boards---lets just say I would have had to spend A LOT more money retaking boards that this little guy costed me).  And then my wonderful Mac decided to steal my Silhouette software CD and not eject it or let me use it from say March-present (thats right its still not officially fixed or even kind of fixed---lets call me busy)(this also brings me to another great point--why didn't I install it the first time I used it?!? Lesson learned!), until the other night when it magically let me install the software (but still not eject the CD...hummm, I am still trying to figure that one out.  This means that although my Mac is still being dumb, my dream machine is earning its name----I had some fun with it today!!!!  So far thumbs up for the silhouette!  
Looks like there will be MANY more projects using it!

Added some words to my chairs for this little kitchen table makeover, not sure if you can make it out, but it say Thankful (obviously) and beyond words on the other chair---I tried to do meaningful words that would go together from different views.... on the front and back---let me know if you are not familiar with the Silhouette or if you have questions about using your with vinyl---but waring I am SO not a pro!

Anyways...onward to my teal top table!

I should note that I have had and loved my sturdy-but-now-lack-lust-table for over four years and so yesterday I decided it was time for a change!

{and oldie but a goodie table---this is after some sanding...nooo I am not really thattt hard on my furniture!)

As many of you know rental-house living prevents you from doing crazy things like painting wall light teal soooo I had to resort to adding a splash of my new favorite color in a different way----insert some bright-ish teal paint!

Anyways I am not sure if the table will stay as is or get a nice coat of glaze or crackle paint or something real wild like that, but for now I am happy with the table, the distressed miss matching chairs (the two on the sides may be painted sooner or later but they will remain in their dark wood glory for a little longer) and the little words, my kitchen is really coming together and starting to feel like home....

Unfortunately I can't say the same for the dining room-----ahhhh I hate moving!!!  
{just keeping it real}

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend---I will be spending mine celebrating my sister-in-laws graduation in my hometown!

I am linking up here.

Um just when I think you can't get any more adorable, you do! Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog, I was so excited to hear from you! Is it weird to say that I missed you cause I sorta did, AND I knew exactly why when I saw your awesome post of your organization stuff for your craft room (love those glass jars btw) and your table looks to DIE for amazing! I don't think I'd ever be brave enough to paint my table, but yours turned out awesome! So I'm thinking maybe you should bring your cute self over to my blog for a guest post! Or maybe we could do a blog swap and I could pop over here the day you come over to my blog?! What do you think??
Oh and my email is: :)

YAY! I ain't got a clue what your Mac is doing there, but I am really happy for you. It must be so stinkin' frustrating getting a mean machine like that (and I refuse to call it Dream Machine as I daren't even dream of owning one yet!) and then being so close and yet so far from using it.
Love your makeover, makes me want to grab some bright paint and pretty up some of my old furniture. BIG TIME!

I love the teal on your table (and kitchen area). The chairs are so cute too! I have yet to brave a big furniture redo but I really want to.

I so wish my husband would let me paint our table and chairs. I am planning to paint a dresser soon though so if I do well with that then maybe his confidence in my painting abilities will increase. (He does have reason to be scared of me + paint +furniture.)

Oops, I forgot to say in my last comment that I really liked the tabletop! Lovely color.
