Second half of first project...

by - Saturday, May 19, 2012


I am finally ready to reveal(yes I am humoring myself to think anyone cares) the second half of my first project. I am actually really happy how it turned out as it was one of the first things I attempted to paint. This table was given to me by my Grandmother. Before you gasp and think I am a terrible person for painting a table from Meme I will inform you that it is a particle board table that has been in her attic for I have no idea how long. It is far from an antique or special. It kind of fell into my lap. So when I moved here and brought my TV we decided that we could use this little dressing table as an impromptu television stand. It served its purpose but I hate the way it looked. I will say it I hate the light oak stain!! I always have. My mother loved her some light oak but although she and I are very similar we have different styles. I love deep stain with visible wood grain, black and cottagey style furniture. I cannot wait to have my own home to decorate and change! It is one of the things I look forward to the most! However I am living in the now and I am trying to make wherever I live the kind of home that I think of as beautiful! This table looks great now and totally matches our bedroom. I don't really care for the huge TV that occupies it at this time. But it's what I've got for now! I hope to one day use it as a cute dressing table with a framed mirror and have perfume and jewelry adorning it! Just girly enough for me :)

Before(terrible angle)
Hardware before
Primer Added
After! The Hardware looks fantastic up
