Tuesday morning. Many kids are going back to school this morning and speaking of school, this little table took me to school when I was working on it.
I saw this great sewing table in the back room of a benefit shop and at first glance thought it would make a wonderful wood piece for the show but when I picked it up realized it needed some screws and tweaking to make it into a nice solid occasional table.
It will never be a sewing table again and if you are anything like me when you sew, it never could have been. I need an entire dining room table to spread out and lay all my crap out.
I had great ideas for this to be a patina table with a lovely teal undertone.
Trevor of course was trying to be supportive with the patina table, it looks good but we both knew my crazy head wouldn't just leave it alone.
Therefore it didn't quite work out and lots of muttering/hours later I ended up with my favourite Annie Sloan chalk paint colour yet.
So here it is,
a little rub n buff in the rosette for elegance
this lovely watercolour of a farm scene was dug out of the estate sale last weekend and when i took all the dirt off i was pleasantly surprised to find this beauty underneath
Seeing this last pic is enough to make me mutter at my computer screen all over again. Ah well, you win some you lose some. Things just don't always end up looking like they do in your head.
Have a great day everyone,
