Elegant Little Round Table

Last year I found some end tables on Craigslist that I just loved and the price was a steal.
They came with a coffee table too.
I didn't need the coffee table, but for the price it was worth getting all three pieces.

Here's the before photo of the table.

The top was very damaged.

I painted the table with the last of my Old White chalk paint.
I was glad to use the can up because I prefer the Pure White chalk paint.
I then used the Annie Sloan wax.

I did my best to smooth out the top of the table without sanding the whole thing down and hoped the paint would cover up a lot of the problem areas.

I used a little of the dark wax in the grooves and also sanded down the curvy areas.

I'm glad to finally have her finished and listed on Craigslist.
Hopefully she finds a new Shabby Chic loving home!

I have a new coffee table sitting in a box just waiting to be let out.
I'll hopefully get to show it to you soon!

Not what you're expecting....

Could this room be anymore gorgeous???? (channeling Chandler Bing)

In my last post I told you I was taking a blogging break to get all kinds of stuff accomplished and yet not only are no projects finished (or started).
I don't even have all of my Christmas stuff put away yet!
(I hope I just made someone out there feel a lot better about themselves :)

Last week my 2 1/2 year old got sick and then it was passed to me.
So the only thing I've accomplished is just about coughing up my lungs.

So I figured hey, I can manage to upload a few pretty photos for my friends in between wheezing episodes, right?

Somehow I stumbled on this site for Arhaus furniture and they have a gallery full of these amazing rooms.

The furniture is so beautiful and the way these rooms are put together is stunning.
Even though I adore design, when I see rooms like this I know I would hire a designer in a second if I could afford it. The person (team?) that put these rooms together has mad skills!

I love to study rooms like these and get lots off great ideas for furniture placement, accessories and of course, near and dear to my heart, knock offs.

So I've blathered away about myself and haven't really commented on the photos.
So I'll end by saying...
Five lights....and they looks like crowns!!!!!!

Have fun "pinning" my peeps! :)

Happy New Year


This is SO me!
 I'm going to take a wee blogging break and get some things cleaned and organized in my home.
 I am also going to work on finishing some projects.
 Hopefully I'll have some lovely things to show you in a week or two (or three, we'll see how it goes).

Happy New Year my friends!

Let's take off the old and put on the new and make this year blissful.

What does this look like to you?
