Can you believe that I found this table on the side of the road with a free sign on it?
Granted it was a little rough and a lot wobbly, but I knew with a little bit of love and elbow grease I could bring it back to life. I whipped the mama-van to the side of the road and scooped it up as fast as possible. The hottie hubby thought I was crazy. I admit, it sat in the basement for about a year with no change.
I was perusing Pinterest (my favorite past-time) and I came upon this gorgeous picture.
(I couldn't find the original link but please let me know if you know it.)
I immediately thought of my little, free table. I decided to use paint sticks to create the herringbone pattern on top.
It took me hours to cut and glue all those little pieces down.
A little wood filler and a whole ton of sanding and this is what I was left with.
I left the color choice for the legs up to Miss H. I was leaning towards a nice creamy white, or a soft grey. And....she picked aqua blue! What??!! Totally out of my comfort zone! I think it looks amazing (now).
We stained the top walnut and then topped that with a couple coats of poly.
Not to shabby for a free table, some paint sticks and a whole lotta love and attention! I think this might be my favorite project yet...
