My oldest daughter attends Loyola University Maryland where she has always been involved in campus activities. Because Loyola is a community service oriented college, many of her activities are community service oriented.
Although we have had a major disagreement about this one, I can't blame her for wanting to go on a mission trip. It's very expensive and the school puts on a big auction every year to help pay for this mission trip. Read more about it here: Project Mexico Auction
So, although I don't have much money to give, I always have an extra piece (s!) of furniture around, I decided to refinish a table and donate it for auction to help the students on their mission.
In my haste to complete it, I forgot to take a before pic, but I think most of us have seen this style of table some time or another. It's normally in a dark cherry color with a gaudy drawer pull. I painted it in my latest fav, ASCP Louis Blue, heavily distressed it, put on a wax topcoat and topped her off with a pretty glass drawer pull.
When I posted this on my FB page just to add to my "album" I had some gaga remarks over it, so I'm hoping that it sells for a big fat chunk of change and it helps the Loyola students on their mission!
