A Table Rescue

Don't you think it's amazing how quickly this summer is flying by?
I can't believe it's the last week of July already!

Last year, after my new living room furniture was delivered, 
I found I needed a little side table...one that would fit between the couch 
and the radiator.  I knew this would not be an easy find
because the space between is so narrow.

One day, I dragged my poor husband out into the middle of nowhere for
an estate sale.  And there, I found it!  The perfect table!


I know you're probably thinking, 
"This was the perfect table?"

I know, I know, my husband was skeptical as well.
He was also not happy that I paid $20.00.
He thought it too much for something so beat up.

I brought it home, got right to work using
 a little "miracle elixir" which I know
you all know about.  :)
Annie Sloan's Old White chalk paint.



See now?  She's looking pretty good, huh?


I stenciled the top for a little added something.


Exactly what I was looking for!
She really was the perfect table!

Don't you just love it when you rescue something
and transform it from ugly duckling
to beautiful swan?

Have a wonderful day, friends!

Great rescue! I love the legs on the table. Your paint job is so cute and I think every room needs a little something like that.

I didn't think it look too bad to begin
with. But her transformation is lovely!

Fantastic transformation!! I really like the addition of the stencilling too, that really finishes it off beautifully and it fits the space very well. 20 dollars well spent I would say! xx

Your new addition looks great Gina! I think you got a pretty good deal since it fits where you needed it to. You'd probably never find the right piece in a store for that price! Enjoy the rest of your Summer!

Carol said...

I think that is such a perfect little table for that spot! I really like that you added the stencil.

Well done, Gina. Love it.
