1 Table down-3 to go

I sure seem to be slow lately. Doesnt take much to wear me out.
  I found this table on craigslist- they wanted 45.00 I offered 30.00 and he said ok.  I knew it would get painted and it had to have new knobs cause 3 of the ones on it were broken.

 48 x 36 was a nice size for the room I'm using it in.   I already had a side table, sofa table and kincaid cabinet , so a new coffee table was all I had to buy..  The other 3 are primed and slowly but surely I'm getting them painted also.

 I got lowes to mix Montery White , a BM Pottery Barn color for me in satin valspar.  For these pieces it was the perfect gray based white and I'm happy I choose it.

I sanded lightly and then sprayed on the primer and painted 2 coats.   Then I did a coat of clear minwax and I love how it gave it a soft smooth look and feel.

not decorated yet :)   but she looks good just sitting in the middle of the floor.
 I found the new knobs at lowes in the sale bin, 50 cents each.. sprayed them orb.

here she is in her original state.
1 more after... I would love to find a stencil for the flat sides and back section.   Not sure yet what kind, but something..  if you have any suggestions I'd love to hear them..
Many Miles to go before I sleep..  giggle..
 I'm sure you noticed the sofa peeking out behind it. I'll take pics of that sometime over the weekend and tell you Its Story:)   This has sure been a odd decor journey for me and I have been so blessed to find things I loved.   I still need the carpenter to show up and do a few things so I can paint my entry wall and then get things on the wall..  Patience, Sonny, Patience:)   its all gonna happen and thank the good Lord, I wont have that one lone pumpkin sitting in the middle of the bare floor ..   I've avoided that nitemare:)

thanks for coming to take a looksee.. It means a lot having visit and comment as this process continues.
 I hope I get to take a break this weekend and make a few of those sweater pumpkins.  I have the old sweaters washed, stuffing and twine.. All I need is something to make the stems out of..

  1. well it looks lovely, I admire you crafty folks, I can paint a picture but I cannot do what you do!!!!

  2. Hi Sonny! I love your table and what a difference with your touch to it! Love your little knobs too. It actually looks like a beautiful custom piece. This is fun and I'm enjoying going along on your journey of newness to your home! ;)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  3. It looks wonderful! I love the "double" knobs on each drawer.

  4. Sonny - I think some of the new stencils of French words, etc. would look great on the side of your new table. Lightly sanded off so, it didn't look new.

    Great job!!


  5. Oh I love it. I would love to have something like that for my family room to store the grandies toys and books and such. For now, I have a round leather topped table so they would not bump their heads on corners hen learning to walk. Once Miss C is walking I will look for something like that. Perfect color.

  16. What an awesome deal! I love the style of that table and you have done a beautiful paint job on it. I am really impressed with the way you added two knobs in place of where the pulls were. That is a really great idea and I like the way it looks!
