The Awesome Table: 
 I walked into Goodwill and spotted it immediately. It was hard to miss. A blue coffee table with a landscape painted on it. Since I don’t currently have a coffee table, I have been using a cool spray painted foot locker. Don’t judge. Therefore I wanted this table. I walked around the store just to make sure that I couldn’t live without it. I brought it proudly to the check-out and the cashier gave me a strange look. “You must be single,” she said. I nodded my head, a bit thrown off by the statement, and she proceeds to tell me that no married woman would have that in her house. So many things I could have said back, but I just laughed and said it would match everything in my place, receiving a horrified look. She mumbled something about man caves and ten bucks later I was trying to fit it into my car.  
 When I got home, I cleaned it and sprayed it with a coat of clear Krylon. I don’t know if you have ever read the directions of Krylon, but you should - especially if you live in the South. “If extremely humid, do NOT use.” Yeah, whatever. I would have to wait a couple months. It came out a little hazy as usual, but I will just give it another coat to clear it up when it a little less humid outside. I also might paint the blue trim a more neutral color.  
 No more foot locker.
