I bought this beautiful side table last fall.
I just loved it so it stayed in our entrance, holding a vase with flowers.
( I took this picture the moment I broguht it in the house, and the tail on the right is not of a racoon's, it's my cat Candy's, in case you're wondering ;)
Luckily, I've been selling my furniture and most of them had found their new homes and also I was running out of stuff that I can paint,
so she became my next project...
This time again, I whipped up my own chalk paint.
I love it so much, its finish is beautiful ( chalky ),
distressing is easy and on top of everything,
it's cheap to make :D (...Huge smile here!!.. )
And she turned out like this....
Stencilling on top.
I love the details.
I gave 2 coats of Poly on the top, then entire piece was waxed.
Waxing is a hard job, don't you think?
I feel my arms are getting muscular...!!
I love mirrored furniture but they are so expensive.
So this is my ( happy ) compromise for now, mini one.
This was my birthday gift from my husband.....( he gave me money and I went shopping, isn't this the best way to get what you really want? )
Well I'm off to making dinner.
Have a wonderful week!
