hey friends, i'm back with another project post.
sorry i've been mia, life has been full.
a funeral, a wedding, parade of home projects,
thrift store / antique shopping, and tax prep have kept me busy
this project was pulled from my archive of pictures that i've taken and not posted.
so although it's new to you, my new coffee table is really about 6 months old.
as i've said before, this is the way i roll. better late than never?!
prior to the upstate home debut in october 2011,
i was busy with a loooong to do list.
the dated hunter green coffee table was one of those "to do's"
so i lugged the brute out to the front porch
aka my work area
please ignore the peeling house paint,
we're working on a new color scheme
the three legged table
my sidekick "dewalt" was very helpful
bubye shiny finish, hello beautiful!
legs & top sanded down and waiting for a new look
i used the same pittsburg paint, black satin, that i used on
the chair bench from long ago for the legs and table skirting.
with a few coats of black, some distressing, hand applied wax,
and a stencil featuring the birth year of our home,
here's the coffee table's new "au natural" look. isn't she a beute?
love those legs with vintage casters added
she sits atop my
floor sample bargain rug from pottery barn
much better don't you think?
have a great week,
linking up to the following:
