Shabby Chic French Country Table Makeover
You know how you go into the thrift store and see a perfect little table just begging for a shabby chic makeover? Its $8.00 price tag calls to you and despite your best efforts to walk past, you pick it up and buy it anyway. I’m not the only one? Oh good…that’s a relief.
As I drove away with it in the backseat I kept telling myself that it was such a useful piece to have even though I didn’t have a spot to put it. It stayed out in the garage for quite some time until I was working on my laptop sitting on the sofa. I thought, I wish I had a tray table. Light bulb moment!!!!
Her humble beginnings.
I actually thought about leaving the chippy worn look…but my love for French white just wouldn’t take it. She had to get a coat of white and I’m so happy I did.
She has some sweet little details I brought back by doing a little light sanding. They’re subtle, but that is the best part.
Let me tell you, I have bought mascara for way more than $8 that didn’t live up to it’s promises so my expectations for this little table were kinda low. But, you know what? She has been super useful so far. She is a track for my son’s Lego jeep. A makeshift desk for my laptop. A holder of a plate of snacks during a late night summer movie marathon and she is great as a foundation for some beautiful peonies.
Her long legs make me wish I was three inches taller with super long legs too. If long legs can do this much for a table, just imagine what they could do for me. *sigh*
Her official name is a Florentine table in case you wanted to search for your own. I highly recommend her.
If you love this little table makeover…maybe you should Pin her. Thanks!
Have an awesome day my friends!
