Quick Fix for a Side Table

A mom of a friend is visiting from Kentucky.  Of course they went to a few estate sales.  After a whole day of fancy expensive estate sales they were ready to give up.  But alas, there was a fortuitous find at a stumbled upon garage sale the next morning. Five bucks!

A quick call to friend Karen...


A little Annie Sloan Old White.  Trimmed with French Linen.  Clear wax.  A little dark wax.


A beauty is born.  Of course she had great lines to begin with.


Love this little drawer.


 Kind of "fancy/plain".



All tables should be adorned with hydrangeas!

The table is now on its way home to Kentucky.  Good-bye beautiful table.

Make something wonderful today!

Love that table! Thanks so much for stopping by and following me. Nice to meet another Michigander. :)

Milia said...

Bliss, I'm sure your friends would never ask if they had any inkling that it was something you didn't want to do even if they did know.

The table is gorgeous and especially like the color combo. I got to tell you that's one beautiful vase! Loving the cubby hole always can use another cubby to fill! So glad you shared your creative inspiration with Sunday’s Best – your creativity helped make the party a success!
