Craigs List table revival!!

Happy Monday friends!!

I found this table for $10 on Craigs list a couple of months ago...I thought it would be the perfect little side table for my chair and a half.  I started working on it last week, but then we were in NYC for a swim meet this weekend....so, I finished it up this morning and I must say, I'm super happy with the way it turned out...take a look and see....
TADA!!!!

Before:  in perfect shape in a dark mahogany!!

After 1 coat of paint...it took 2:  I glazed it this morning to add some dimension...

This table has great lines to work with when glazing...

I added this small vignette for some texture:  but there is still plenty of room for my tea cup or wine glass !! & look, there's that baby's breath again...





Have a happy day!!

  13. The table turned out beautifully. We had a little table like that in our first little rental when we first got married. The tiny house wasn't furnished, but the landlords (an older couple) lived right next door & had tons of extra furniture stored in their garage. After seeing our meager furnishings, they invited us into the garage to pick out some things, & the little table was one of the pieces we liked. Your table brought back fond memories.

  17. Craigslist revamps always make me the happiest! Its so fun to think about how this table looked completely different in someone elses home and now it looks like it belonged in your home all along! So fun!
