Hello beautiful friends!! I hope ya’ll are still hanging in there! I can almost sense a shimmer of light at the end of this crazy tunnel…almost! On Thursday, I shared my new haul that I shopped our garage for. Who knew I could pack that much stuff in there?? I have serious stacking skills, ya’ll!
Before I get to my haul, I wanted to tackle a table that I now have in my office. If you’ve seen our bedroom makeover, you may remember that it once sat on my side of the bed:
I found this table at an estate sale for $60 a couple of Summers ago and it worked perfectly with my Hubby’s furniture. He only bought one nightstand when he bought his set, and I had a dressing table near my side of the bed at our old house which didn’t leave much room for a bedside table. I loved this table as soon as I saw it!
I ended up switching it for this drum table that I had in my office as it was a bit taller, and it had already been painted in Fluff:
See its original makeover HERE. It was in seriously sad shape when I found it!
Plus, I wasn’t quite ready to take a brush to this pretty, ornate table just yet.
Well today’s the day! It stuck out like a sore thumb in my sea of white and neutrals, so I went for it!
I started by giving it a good wipe down with wipes. If you can’t find wipes at the moment, any cleaner will do, and Dixie Belle also sells a cleaner you mix with water called White Lightning.
Then I gave it a base coat of Driftwood.
I actually loved it with the Driftwood while it was still wet, but it dried darker and I decided to keep going with Steel Magnolia!!
I love this color so much! When I used this gorgeous color on this night table, it took three coats for complete coverage, and I suggested that a base coat of a similar color like Driftwood would give more solid coverage. I took my own advice this time!
The coverage is amazing!
I love the new look of my pretty marble-topped table in my office!
It works so beautifully with the colors I have in there!
And I love how all the details still stand out although it is all one color now!
Dixie Belle has eight gorgeous metallic colors in all and they are self sealing, so there is no need to apply a topcoat.
If you’ve followed me since our last house, you might remember when I slip-covered this sofa:
My sweet MIL gave this to my Hubby before we were married and it used to live in our bedroom. It started out yellow and didn’t match a thing but it is so darned comfy and I loved the shape of it, so I decided to make a cover for it. It is perfect here in my office!
There are so many gorgeous details on this table!
I only painted the drawer fronts since they were a snug fit already…
My roses are still hanging in there two years later…
See how I made this arrangement with faux water HERE.
This frame was a thrift store find:
You can see it and a couple other smalls HERE. That’s me and my oldest about six or so years ago. He is a senior in high school this year…
That’s my heart right there!
My own projects usually sit in waiting for forever so I’m so glad to have this pretty piece done!
I’ve got something super fun for ya’ll on Thursday…
Nancy and I are taking you thrifting!! We went thrifting together literally days before everything shut down, and I’ll have a brand new video to share of our trip woohoo!! I don’t know about you, but I am going through some serious thrifting withdrawal!!
I found a bunch of smaller items on our trip and I’ll be sharing what I did with these pieces:
UPDATE: No need to wait!! Our brand new thrifting video is up and I’m sharing these smaller pieces HERE!
Take care, stay well, and I’ll see ya Thursday!!
Don’t Miss a Thing!
