The Write 31 Day Challenge – 31 Days,Every Day,One Topic
Yippee! It’s time for another break from all my writing and all your reading and get down to something fun. Today I’m sharing a cute table we found a few years back when we happened upon a junky little store in the Pacific Northwest. I loved her from the start. Every wobbly and cracked part of her.
As usual, I’m so bad at remembering to take pictures before I actually dig into a project but here’s one picture I found on my iPhone. This was after we’d taken off her top, which was water ringed and ugly, stabilized her legs (hubby’s handiness deserves a nod here), and glued a foot back on. You can see that she was a reddish brown color.
I decided to give this piece my favorite Pottery Barn finish which I’ve done and shared before on THIS trestle table.
This was a quick re-do, no more than an hour, and I’ve shared the complete how-to RIGHT HERE!
I know not everyone can paint furniture well but I think this might just be one of those pieces that anyone can do and feel good about. It’s hard to mess up because you shabby it up so much after painting it.
Do you love this middle piece on the table? I do too. That’s what sold me on her in the first place.
If you’ve followed me for long you’ll know that before I ever started blogging I began transforming furniture and all kinds of other junky stuff that I found at garage sales and thrift stores. It felt good to take a piece that no one wanted and turn it into something beautiful. The pieces of furniture I’ve worked on have always reminded me of the work of redemption God has done in my own life.
That’s all for today folks. I’ll return tomorrow with Day 11 – We Should be Good Now, Right?
And please feel free to share if you think this series might be valuable to someone you know.
