Sadly, there's no before shot of this little beauty. Oh, just trust me when I tell you that the new paint job improved it by like - oh say A THOUSAND PERCENT! Imagine chipped, damaged wood peeling off - bad, bad shape....
This table was just sitting at the street (a couple of houses away from where we lived at the time) waiting for Mr. Garbage Man to come along. I noticed it on the way back from taking my daughter to school and honestly, I really debated about walking over to pick it up. (Did I happen to mention my husband's annoyance with my "treasures"? Let's just say he's not exactly on board. Oh, the guy just has no vision! LOL)
Well, obviously I went over and got it. Being creative and transforming a junk piece into something cool and useful has such a way of relaxing me if I'm really stressed out. That's exactly what this little table project did for me....at the time I was walking through such a difficult season of life and it just felt sooooo good to get some of that stress out by CREATING (my hands are waving through the air quite dramatically as I say "creating" ha ha ha ha ha). Anyway, it's a great feeling of fulfillment when the project is complete and you can stand back to look at the finished result.
Thanks for looking!
