Years ago, we found this table on the side of the road. I was so excited! I couldn't believe that my neighbor didn't want it any more! So I quickly enlisted my boys to walk down to her house and pick up the table and drag it to our house. I knew that I could use it for something.
For a while, this table served me well as my craft/sewing table. I always had the intention of painting it and making it look cute, but I just never took the time to do it. It needed a bit of work before I could paint it. It was pretty wobbly.
Fast forward about 4-5 years...
I finally finished the table! My husband made the table sturdy, my boys sanded it down and helped me paint it and then I glazed it and...I love it!
I can't believe that it took me so long to finish! One of the reasons it did take me so long was that I remained indecisive on what paint color to use. I debated over white and black, then turquoise. But when all was said and done, I decided to use Valspar's Bungalow Gold. Since we are renting right now and all our walls are white, I wanted to do a splash of color to decorate around. And this was the perfect choice!
After the sanding and painting, I decided to glaze it. I tinted the glaze with ebony stain. I painted it on and then wiped it off. I really liked all the imperfections of the wood, so I left as much glaze as I could in all the knicks and scratches and grooves of the wood. It turned out amazing and is now the new home of my computer!
