Because I'd rather think about decorating than real life...

Before, well sort of. This was taken during the mess of getting ready to rearrange, but the important thing is the table is black

Ta Da - After, well sort of, I've done a bit of rearranging since this photo. It's a much lighter look, a nice change.
My brother has a saying that the choices we make as parents define what "normal" looks like to our kids. It occurred to me as Ella helped me paint our dining room table that she is growing up thinking that this is normal. At some point I will have to explain to her that her mother is crazy and normal people don't paint their dining room table and chairs because they tire of the old finish. But we sure had fun!

My girls are also going to have a somewhat skewed version of normal:-)

Sounds fun and looks great!
