Vintage Table Makeover-Feminine Shape and A Little Paint

Vintage Table Makeover-Feminine Shape and A Little Paint

In my office, I have quite literally found that I have no spot to package my monograms.  I have been forced to spread them throughout my home, furiously running around in the evenings, preparing them to be shipped.  I decided, it was time to find a table that was defined for the purpose of tagging and shipping monograms.  Then, as fate would have it, I stumbled across this gem at a ReStore in Mt. Airy, NC.  The curve of the tabletop and the elegant lines made me stop in my tracks.  I HAD to have it.  I bought it and somehow fit it into my small car.  I am still not quite sure of how I pulled that one off.

After a little facelift with Annie Sloan Chalk paint and a sanding sponge, I had exactly what I wanted.

And now, what it really looks like…piled with monograms.

As a finishing touch, I found this fabulous basket at Target (Shops at Target.)  This charmer also stopped me mid-shopping, but I resisted.  I figured I didn’t need another basket, so it didn’t come home with me.  I thought about it for days after I left…eventually, I went back for it.  It has become the finishing touch that also serves a very important purpose-holding my crafting tools.  My “work-in-progress office” is finally almost finished.

It is amazing how productive one becomes when in a fabulous space.  🙂
