Less than 24 hours ago, I found this table for .87c:
You may think I grab every free or .87c piece of furniture in my path...but that is not the case. I have criteria other than price.
This piece had cute bones. Good bones are a must.
Just like nice windows make a house beautiful in my aesthetic, furniture needs lovely lines. I thought this piece had nice lines.
No stripping required. I WANTED the old paint texture. I even wanted to see evidence of the orange past existence...
This morning, I got up early to take photos. After all, I've kept you waiting on the desk...so you needed a little instant gratification right along with me.
As I was painting, or actually waiting for the warm gray undercoat to dry...I painted some small things, too.
The heavy iron mini-planter was one of them.
I love it so much better now...
I've said it before, and I'll keep on saying it...
This is not where the table will end up...I have plans to switch things up; maybe this weekend...Lord willing and the creek don't rise!
Word for the Day:
13 Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— 14 yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. 15 Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.”
