You know where I had my break up with old man winter the other day? Well he’s like that old boyfriend you had in high school that you broke up with, but he wouldn’t take no for an answer. It is freezing here with torrential winds and tons of rain for the last two days.
Topher was out of town for the first half of the week, so there was a bit more on my plate than usual, and with my new booth space opening next week my to do list is a mile long.
One thing I can cross off my list was this guy.
I found this old end table at a yard sale last week. I got it for the bargain price of … free! It was the last day of the lady’s sale, and she said I could just have it so that she could be rid of it.
It was music to my ears.
So I loaded that baby up (quickly — just in case she changed her mind).
It was dirty, dated and down right ugly.
(Don’t mind Gracie’s puppy butt in the picture above)
I painted the entire piece green.
Then I hated it.
So I painted over the entire piece with two coats of Plaster Paint in Flannel. After that dried I painted the inserts in Plaster Paint; this time I used Sweet Cream.
I spray painted the handles and hinges an antique gold.
I then distressed the whole piece, which allowed the smallest bit of green to peek through to match the green on the inside of the cabinet.
I felt like it was still missing a little something so applied a little Parisian stencil to the top.
I think it looks 100% better!
I love that it has great extra storage also!
I’ll be taking it down to my new furniture booth for the April 1st grand opening!
