Furniture Friday #6 and Link Party

Hello all.  Happy Friday!  I can't say I have much for you today as it has been a crazy week for marketing our shop.  I also ran out of unfinished product so hasn't been a big painting week.  I've been packing and shipping all week, which is a good thing.  The bad news is that I have no new merchandise, but that is soon to change.

I also have a small announcement, I'm going to try out the linky party thing, so please, please, share your awesome craft and furniture projects.  I will be doing features every Saturday.

I have been so busy with clients furniture lately that I have barely had a chance to get any of my own done which means my house is still looking a little grandmaish.  I did however get one of my two end tables done this week so I'd like to share it with you.

Here it is before

and here it is now

I used a high gloss black oil based paint to give it sheen.

I really should've photographed this outside before I brought it into the house because the lighting sucks in my house, but anyhoo....lets get to the party.

Please put your permalink into the linky and pretty please link back here so we can share everyone's other great ideas (button at the bottom of this post or on my sidebar).   Please do not link any shops!!  Sit back, relax, grab a martini, network (visit other links) and enjoy the  party.

Note: By adding your link you are giving me permission to use your photos on my blog without contacting you.  Which means you may get featured.  

Ok.  Lets see what you got.
