Can I keep her?

The hardest thing for me when refinishing furniture is letting things go.  The problem with keeping everything is

  1. I would be BROKE as a joke.
  2. My house would bust at the seams.
  3. The hubs would leave me.

So sadly this gorgeous little table is going in the for sale pile. Sniff Sniff.

Here she is before:

The legs were REALLY wobbly and the marble insert was pink (ewwww).  After i reattached the legs with wood glue and new screws, I had to decide what to do with the pink marble. I thought I would replace it with some glass, but I had seen on some blogs where people had PAINTED over the marble on their fireplaces successfully. It wouldn’t hurt to try and if it failed I could go the glass route.  A coat of primer and some grey paint and it covered beautifully!

Everyone needs a Tiffany blue table right?

  1. I am an old furniture hoarder myself. I see things at tag sales (just furniture) and have to have it in case I want to refinish, or refurbish. I never get around to that…I end up using the old crappy furniture just the way it is especially if it has drawers because I never have enough room for all the clothes I buy and don’t wear!!!!

  2. I love this! I recently have begun refurbishing furniture myself and I know exactly how you feel. In fact, I haven’t been able to part with a piece yet! Good luck in your endeavor!
