My husband and I are terrible when it comes to dinner time.
We eat in front of the tv, a lot, like every night a lot.
Now we have a tv in our kitchen, but it doesn't have a DVR, so when we are trying to catch up on a show we typically end up in our living room. We also tend to lend towards the living room when we are watching sports, and since that ends up being 3-4 nights/days a week, we eat in our living room a lot.
And that was fine, until we got our new couch. We love, it is just one of those that engulfs you ad you ca't (or I can't) reach anything when I am sitting on it. Over the past couple of months I have been toying around with getting some tray tables for us to use, and I haven't really seen anything that I liked. Everything was so plain and really we only needed one since Hubs uses the ottoman for his dinner table.
Yesterday, I needed alittle down-time. I needed to kinda leave the week behind and do my thing. Which always leads to what I like to call 'treasure hunting' which yesterday lead to me finding this.
As you can tell from the picture it needed alitte TLC.
I got right to work, it is a good thing that I have alot of supplies around the house.
Seriously, I only needed the contact paper. I know I have a problem!!
My first step was clean it up.
Next I added the first coat of brown paint. I let that dry and then I added another. Followed up by 2 coats of seal.
I measured the top and then cut the contact paper to fit.
Secure the contact paper to the top and it's done!
We totally started using it right away!
