My new Craig’s List table……..



table 3


I found this beautiful table on Craig’s List right before Christmas.

It appears to be in pretty good condition in this picture……..

but as we all know pictures can sometimes

be a little deceiving.




I didn’t plan on painting the table originally.

However the top was in pretty

 rough shape so I planned on refinishing just the top.

After looking at the table to come

up with a plan I realized

that two of the legs were faded from sunlight and were lighter.

Being the lazy person that I am I decided to just

paint the table because the thought of refinishing the

entire table didn’t sound all that appealing.


table 2


Originally the table had gold around the edge

of the top so after I painted and distressed the table I added a little

gold Rub N’ Buff to all the raised areas.


table 4


The little table has now found a spot behind the settee in the living room.

This wasn’t the spot I originally had in mind but

it all worked out in the end.


Joining the party at:

 Savvy Southern Style

Hope to see you there!

Gorgeous. I had one similar but never thought of painting it so I gave it away. Now I'm regretting that decision.

With its distinctive red-orange roof and prime setting beside the most traveled roadway in Florida, the impressive Tui Lifestyle Main Showroom. High End Furniture Store TUI Lifestyle is the best.
