A simple project taking an absurdly long time

I've gotten lazy.  I started painting this little bench-y thing in our breakfast area about two weeks ago.  It still only has one coat of paint on it.  It took about 10 minutes to do the first coat and for whatever reason, I cannot seem to get off my arse long enough to paint a second coat.  I will do it this weekend. 

Anyway, here's the before and after (just pretend the paint is even because I'm not sure if I'll ever get around to taking final "after" pictures, so let's just go with this, okay?)

Before, it was a weird green color.  The color alone wasn't bad, it just really didn't go with anything in the house:

And the "After":

Don't you love the little ant traps we have around the house?  We've had a bit of an ant issue this summer.  Ugh.

Anyway, the grand plan is to eventually stain the table top a darker color.  The honey color is okay and all, but I think it'd look better darker.  At this rate, you can look forward to that project in about 2015.

I'm having the same issue with finishing a painting project. I just need to get the second coat done and I can't seem
to do it. Also, we have those curtains in our sunroom.
