This little side table was another "great find" from my good garage sale friend, Cindy. Have I mentioned how much I love her?! I've been so busy, but I really need to do something extra special for her. Soon!
I always realize as I begin writing posts that I've been good about taking after photo's but forgot a good before photo. Sorry.
This little table had been "rigged" by it's previous owner with a little bottom shelf, which was cute but was only held in place by eye hole screws. Not so cute.
So I removed the shelf and filled in the holes, sanded it down, painted it black, distressed the top and then let it sit because I had no idea what I wanted to do with the top. LOL
One morning, making the hubs coffee I had the brilliant idea that the little table needed a vintage coffee label painted on it! I found the name "Old Plantation Coffee" and made my graphic in Publisher.
Not bad for a few hours worth of work. I wish I had room somewhere for it...I'm pretty happy with it. I know someday I'm going to look back at some of the pieces I've sold and desperately want them back! Do any of you that refinish furniture feel the same way?! I think its a good thing to always make pieces over that I would use in my own home, but sometimes that also bites me in the butt because I don't have room for it all! LOL
So now I'm wondering...would you use this in your home or do I just have unique taste? LOL
