A Shabby Table Makeover with White Paint
Wed 16th, Oct, 2013
This a funny little odd sized thrifted table. It’s always been a bit of a sad table under the house.
Recently it nearly got a heck of a lot sadder as we had a huge and I mean HUGE clear-out of the garage and under this old cottage…you have never seen this place as de-cluttered, it’s positively mind-cleansing….anyway, the table, well it’s never really fitted in anywhere so I never did much to it or with it and I was either going to offer it to lovely Beach Cottage newsletter readers who could come and pick it up and rescue it (not that I think readers like sad things of course ;-) ) or take it to Vinnies and hope that someone else would get some use from it.
However I decided it could be handy to have a table like this around, it’s small and folds up easily…
I’m not sure whether to keep it or not now..it’s sporting a new shade of antique ocean white, shabbied and distressed with these fair hands… I’m thinking I could pop it with some colour, the blue of our front door sprung to mind and I think I have some of that left somewhere, or perhaps chalk paint, or some yellow?
Or perhaps I’ll just give it to St Vincent. I reckon he might be in need of a little side table for his nightcap.
And do you even know what it is for? …the oddest little shape and height but then again the more I look at it the more I like that. A bit unique.
I’m rambling. There are teenagers to be fed, husbands to water and pups to cuddle.
