On our way home from church, on our street, once again I couldn't believe this sweet piece of furniture was set out by the curb. I yelled for hubby to stop! I'm amazed by the pieces of furniture that I find on our street. Here are the others:
All the pieces we have found are solid wood finds. No pressed wood, no plastic but solid wood. I painted it an expresso brown using Rustoleum's Spray Paint, Satin Walnut. Annie Sloan does not make an expresso brown color otherwise I would have used it.
Much to our surprise, this table opened up into what seemed to have been at one time, a sewing machine table
It seemed that at one point, the inner platform was poorly replaced by this pressed wood platform. Overall the rest of the table was in great shape. All I wanted was a table this size for my special spot.
The hardware only included two handles. I painted them using this fast drying gilders paste
I wasn't sure exactly what I needed to do with these except just wipe them down with a clean cloth and set them aside to dry before I painted them
This is what they looked like the next morning after I painted them the evening before
and here they are, back on the newly painted table door
and here she is in all her glory
I had a round table (you know, the ones that we're big in the 80's, 90's?) before in this spot and I was never crazy about it. The past two years I looked and looked for the right table, I almost purchased a half moon table at IKEA but I decided against it only because I still wasn't ready to pay the $60-70 for it
I firmly believe that good things come to those who wait . . . . and it was FREE!!!
I love my street :)
