Beautiful friends welcome back! I am so excited because today is Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday!! That means not only do I have a trashy makeover for you, so do four of my favorite blogger friends! Be sure to look for their projects at the bottom.
We also found two of these tables in the shed:
I painted one to use in my office to hold my printer, and the other has just been hanging out in my storage room. And do you know what else has just been hanging out in my storage room?
ALL of this!!
Yes. I had ALL of this stashed in my storage room and there I was out thrifting for MORE stuff! Oh the shame!! I’m calling this my Storage Room Haul of Shame!
I had pulled a couple of things out to start a new pile to work on, and then I had plans to go yard saling this past Saturday to find a few more things. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t cooperating and so as I started to dig a little more, I knew I could pull a good pile together without even leaving the house! Now that really IS a shame, isn’t it?!
This is what my storage room looked like AFTER I pulled all that stuff out:
Still a hot mess! I’m sure I could pull together enough stuff to create another haul! I’m determined to get that room cleared out. Now some of these items I just forgot about, but others I have completely lost my motivation for. Now I will be forced to work through them!
When I was deciding what to work on for today, I chose this table because it is the most “trashed” item in the pile. Here’s a closer look at the top:
This is also the reason it took me so long to get to it. It appeared as though it was stained, then painted brown on top of the stain, and then the elements being stored in the shed didn’t help matters any.
I’ve included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love.
A quick sanding with my sander and it actually all came off really easily:
The paint on the legs was intact, so they just got a good wipe down. I did find a split in the wood at the bottom that I had to repair with a little wood glue…
Pretty simple prep for such a tired looking piece to start!
And of course, a little paint magic goes a long way!
So bright and fresh now!
I thought this would be a fun piece to try a new Dixie Belle color…Farmhouse Green!
Such a pretty color to welcome Summer, don’t you think?
I love the way white plays up the spindly legs so I stuck with Cotton for the legs.
The beautiful hydrangeas are from my sister’s yard. I went over Saturday and stole some. Oh how I miss mine from our old house!
I sanded all over with 220 grit sandpaper, a little more on the legs than the top. I sealed the legs with Dixie Belle’s clear wax and sealed the top with Gator Hide using Dixie Belle’s applicator sponge to apply.
Sweet and simple!
Don’t forget to see what my friends have done with their finds as well!
And that’s piece number one completed from the Storage Room ‘Haul’ of Shame!
