Black Beauty

Sometimes I like to play a little game called "Grab it and Paint it."  There's no planning, there's no fretting, there's just painting. My sister found this adorable table that desperately needed a makeover.  My mom had a little black paint left over in the sprayer (yes - I've gotten my mother into this hobby too) so I sprinted to the basement and grabbed this beauty.

30 minutes later plus a knob change... And here she is...  (30 minutes might be a little exaggeration... I distressed, brushed on some poly, and drooled on it a couple of times)...

Don't you LOOOOVE that beautiful window behind the table?!?  More projects with that baby soon!

Happy Junkin'!

  2. That is a beautiful table. I love taking old furniture and making it new again. I am looking now for a dresser with character to paint and put it in my upstairs bathroom for storage. Well, when the bathroom gets finished that is. I will be stopping in more to view your future projects.

  3. the table now looks amazing !!!

  4. Hi! I love your blog! Following you from the Aloha Friday Blog Hop! I would appreciate the follow back! Thanks! -Kat

    P.S. I love this table!

  5. Love your style. And I do love that old window. I have some old shutters that I need to redo too. All of sudden, you've motivated me. I found you on the Aloha blog hop. I'm Leslie @ Gwen Moss blog (the decision that changed my life)

  6. Did I tell you that I found this table at an estate sale where the home was literally WALLPAPERED with every playbill, newspaper article, picture from a magazine, etc. that the homeowner experienced/found interesting? It was like being in Alice in Wonderland or something - fascinating and a little creepy. This table must be so happy to look so classy and updated! Lord knows what it has seen in its day! Great job!
