More purple paint

When we bought the paint for the toddler bed, my hubby told the paint mixer person we wanted a half gallon. The paint guy said they only sold it in quarts and full gallons. Silly hubby was going to go ahead and buy a full gallon, thankfully the paint guy asked again what size bed we were painting and suggested the quart instead.

It's a good thing! We had nearly 3/4 of the quart left after painting the bed. And I decided to put another small portion of it to use.

My parents bought this table for the girls this past Christmas, since their old table only had two chairs and well, that doesn't work for three kids.

See table here in the center of this picture:

We had an accident a few months ago where the littlest got ahold of some day-glo orange nailpolish. Not only was she covered in it, but she got it on the table and chairs. I don't have a picture of that but you can see it through the first coat of imperial plum paint here:

Another three coats later (yes THREE more, it took a lot to cover that orange!!) and here we are! I'm pretty pleased with it.

And we still have nearly the 3/4 of a quart of paint left. What would you do next?
