Petite Paris Side Tables

Petite Paris Tables

Welcome...I have a cute makeover for you today! My Mom had these two petite side tables in her attic that she had painted and stenciled a while ago. She never was happy with the results and offered them to me to redo for my booth. Of course I'll take them!

This little chair got a sweet Christmas Makeover!
