✥ "Spring Into Action" Challenge {week 1} ✥

Ooohhh! I am kind of excited and kind of nervous to post about this little collaboration today. You see, I was contacted by Linda from My Crafty Life about a Spring Into Action Challenge. She thought is would be the perfect excuse for us girls to tackle a project we had all been procrastinating. 
I must admit there are a few I need to get on- but because I can't wait to see how it turns out, I chose this one.
 It's the side tables in my living room- I have two of them. So there just cheap MDF tables, from Target originally and bought back in 2005 I think. I {fake} wood has a reddish tint in certain lights- that, honestly, drives me crazy!
Now this is no simple "paint a table" project.
Nope. My plans are pretty intense and, as a hint, I'll tell you I think they'll require several coats of paint and some stain will be involved too. Now you can see why I'm nervous- with so many steps involved I have no idea if they'll even turn out!!

The are 12 of us doing the challenge- the undaunted dozen. If you get the chance stop by and see what these other awesome girls are planning! I'm excited to see what everyone is planning.

 Now the rule is- if my project super sucks, there can be NO judging! ;-) It is a bit ambitious, I'm not gonna lie!  {What if I fail miserably!} But you guys will hear an update from me next week. Then in 2 weeks- the big reveal!
What have you guys been working on- or rather what have you guys been putting off?!
