Sorry for the time between posts again, but I've been working CRAZY busy hours in my "real life" and any decorating has been put on hold...until this weekend. It's just a small table, but that still counts, right?
This is really a great, quality piece, but what you can't tell is that the stain had chips all over it and it needed to be fixed up somehow. I've recently discovered that staining a whole piece of furniture is just NOT my thing. Too meticulous, too time consuming and I don't have the proper tools. I do still however, love the stained top look. So, I sanded down the top and restained it. I used two coats of ASCP in Old White, then distressed and waxed. I even used the same knob cause I like it!
I'm not too sure I like it in the space. The couch is a light gray, the floors are light and the walls are light, so it just seems to fade in. I might repaint in my new fav color ASCP Duck Egg Blue, which actually looks more green to me. I think it would add a nice pop of color and go well with my new TV stand that is Louis Blue. But, I'm going to live with it for a while and see. That's a new concept for me, but I'm trying to do things s-l-o-w-l-y instead of having to get it done NOW!
Here is another view:
You may notice the curtains in the back. Yes, I had planned on making my own. No, I didn't make my own! I stumbled upon these at Target and at $16.99 a panel, there was NO way I could have done it cheaper. And, I'm well aware that lamp is WAY too big for that small table, but like I said, slowly, one step at a time!!
