I found a neat old farm table and trunk at a local farm sale.
You may notice that YES THEY ARE BLUE.
I am planning on using them in the basement.
Not as blue is it.
First I sanded off all of the chippy paint.
Then I painted over the blue with a slightly aqua green color.
Then I stained it all with a gel stain.
You can see a little of the difference in color now.
Did you notice that I did not cover it in paint but tried to let the wood show through.
This trunk is great for storing extra blankets and pillows.
I'm loving my new table.
I love finding vintage pieces and reworking them until they are perfect.
Rather than going out and finding the perfect piece I make it perfect for me.
So, how do you like it?
Do you like how I only painted over the painted areas or do you think I should have covered the whole top?
I still have to have the legs trimmed down to coffee table height.
What are your plans for this weekend?
Me, weeds are calling my name.
I am sharing my vintage table with Debra from Common Ground for Vintage Inspired Friday, Cindy from My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday and French Country Cottage for Feathered Nest Friday.
And I would like to join a new party.
Thank you Jody from Rooted in Thyme for inviting me to join Simple & Sweet Fridays.
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by.
