Last week I realized I hadn't made a trip to Goodwill in a while, so when I drove by there, something told me to stop. I'm so glad I did because I stumbled upon this:
A perfect unpainted table! I didn't have to clean up anyones mess! I got a steal of a deal, and it even came with a kidney shaped GLASS TOP!!!
As I inspected the table, I began to wonder its story. It looked like someone took stair spindles and attached them to an old vanity top. I love the legs! They seriously look just like our stair spindles.
Maybe I'm the only one that does this, but whenever I buy furniture, I do wonder where it came from and what its story is. Did a dad make this for his daughter? Did a husband make this for his wife for their foyer? The possibilities are endless!
Anyways, upon even closer inspection, I realized someone tried to hot glue fabric to the sides of the table top. (Hence I'm thinking the vanity theory).
I scraped, scraped, and scraped. But finally the stickiness and glue came off! I was ready to paint!
I decided on an oops color from Home Depot. It didn't have a color name on it, but it's a limey-green.
It didn't have any dimension to it, so I decided to glaze it with Ralph Lauren's Tobacco. After it dried, I applied Annie Sloan's wax and ended up with this!
You might be wondering why the wood looks like it's separating. Well it is, so it can do this!
The drawers are hidden and it's got an old swing out vanity support top! It would make a great small laptop desk, tall end table, foyer table, the possibilities are endless!
Look for this in my store! The hubbs loved it, but not enough to keep it.
