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?

Transformation Tuesday

I am super happy how my first transformation Tuesday turned out! I made this for my son out of an old typeset drawer. I used General Finishes milk paint, which is an absolute dream to paint with. My little guy loves it and has rearranged all his guys about 100 1,000 times. Maybe, just maybe, I won’t step on these darn things in the middle of the night any more. I am regretting all the little pieces I sucked up with my vacuum over the years now 😦
