This is the week. The last week, that is. If I'm alive on Wednesday, then all will be right with the world.
A few quick things:
1. I officially pulled my first thing off the curb. I'm a little embarrassed... but it's solid wood and has dovetailed drawers. I love it. I'll share it with you later this week!
2. I painted a couple different things with chalk board paint over the weekend and I'm waiting the 3 days until I can draw on them. It's driving me crazy! But I can't wait to show you :)
3. Just a couple days until we announce the winner of your first ever giveaway! Don't forget to enter-you have a great chance of winning!
On to the makeover! I got this end table (thanks to my awesome boyfriend) at the same time as this one.
I think my sister's exact words were, "I'm excited to see what you're going to do to this one because it's really ugly."
I loved her little feet and she was solid. And I'm always up for a challenge.
I primed her and gave her two coats of Martha Stewart's Heavy Cream. The top ended up needing an extra coat.
It seemed a little boring to me and I thought the detail of the piece would be perfect for a little two-tone action.
I mixed a little Winter's Day with the white to get a really light gray. I wanted it to be a subtle difference.
I distressed it lightly and she's still waiting to get a coat or two of protective wax.
Sorry for the drawer nudity. She's missing her drawer pull. It was out in the garage somewhere and I was in a hurry!
I love the way she turned out. I think Kait might even be impressed.
