My daughter got a table from work that they were going to throw out and decided that it would be a fun piece to do a make-over with!
I think that she was right!There are no spots on the top of the table…it is just the sunlight filtering through the trees!This is what the table looked like when she picked it up at the office! As you see…it is in desperate need of some tender loving care!Here is a close-up of the table top. She spray painted the legs to a sea blue color and then painted the whole top in a white chalk paint that she made. Here is a link to make your own chalk paint. After the white dried she taped the stripes on and painted them with a grey chalk paint. She distressed the edges and finished it with a couple of coats of paste wax! I think that it turned out so cute and it will fit perfectly in her new house when it gets built! She has one piece of new furniture now…and a whole houseful more to go! :)
Since she did her make-over, I started working on one of my own…here is a preview:My neighbor came over earlier this summer and asked me if I would be interested in this table. She was going to throw it out! Of course I jumped on the chance to own this sweet baby. Then I injured my arm on the 4th of July and I figured that I would not be able to do anything with this table this summer. But my arm is getting better and stronger every day and I am in the painting stages of this table! I can’t wait to get it finished and show it to you! It looks just a little bit different than in this picture! :)
