Firmoo Eyeglasses Review

Hi guys! I was pretty stoked when Firmoo contacted me about doing an eyeglass review for them. You see, just a few weeks before, at my eye exam I was told that I needed glasses. Boo! (It happens to the best of us a some point I guess.)

At Firmoo I was able to select my glasses online.

Upload my new eyeglass prescription.

Submit my order and then sit back, relax and wait for my new glasses to be shipped right to me! It doesn't get any easier than that! I selected these and I LOVE how they fit and look!

I had a very pleasant shopping experience with Firmoo. I did not run into any problems or issues at all! I placed my order and 4 days later they were shipped out custom lenses and all! Actual shipping time did take about 2 weeks however.

Included was the following:
Case with a really cool map design that I absolutely LOVE!
Cleaning Cloth
Fabric glass holder/pocket.
Tiny Screwdriver and Spare Screws

You can visit Firmoo at www.firmoo.com and get your own pair too and at very affordable prices!

And their 15% off page where new customers get a coupon code on frames sitewide.

Kitchen Table Before and After

Hi all! I am so excited to share my beautiful and new to me kitchen table! When I spotted this table at the thrift store she wasn't too pretty but I knew she had it in her to be a thing of beauty. She had good bones, her flaws were cosmetic not structural. She stood tall and she stood proud and for only 12 bucks it was worth a try! Yep that's right $12! And it was just the perfect size for my kitchen booth! What more could a girl ask for?

You know how it is when you've been on the hunt and FINALLY, it arrives? Yeah that was me with this table. I was all over it like white on rice!  I wanted that straight edge top, not those decorative, beveled edges and boy it was hard to find. I also did NOT want the claw feet but I settled.

Here's how she looked at first glance.

The first thing I did was get out my handy dandy palm sander and I went to work. I sanded every part I could get to with my sander. Then by hand in the little nooks and crannies. Once I got off  the funky painted mess on top I could see some really cool wood grain going on. Sad thing was it was a veneer so I had to tread lightly.

Top before sanding with some kind of funky paint job going on.

Top after sanding. LOOK at that lovely wood grain!

For the top I sanded with 2 grits of sandpaper. I then stained the top. I wanted it dark however (I think due to the veneer) it would only take one coat of wood stain. After staining I put on 3 coats of polyurethane. This is our everyday meal/homework table so I wanted a good seal on it.

For the base I sanded with 2 grits of sandpaper. My husband then did the primer and the painting for me. Lucky girl huh? After the paint dried I sanded again with my palm sander to knock off some paint and give it that worn, shabby country feel. To antique I then went over the entire panted area with wood stain and wiped off the excess. Let it dry and it was good to go!

I absolutely LOVE how it came out and I LOVE how it looks in my kitchen! Every time I walk by it catches my attention and I can't take my eyes off of it! It is not perfect in any way but the "flaws" and imperfections are what I love the most!

So when you see that beat up looking piece that catches your eye give it a chance. You never know if you never try! You just may end up loving it!
