A couple of weeks back, my family and I were driving around, looking at neighborhoods, and my hubby spotted these tables on the side of the curb with a free sign on them. We stopped the car and I begged him to go get them. I was being a big wussy because there were people standing in the driveway packing up a U- Haul. Being the sweet man that he is, he made me put on my big girl pants and go get them myself.(Sometimes I need a push) I walked up shyly to the tables and sure enough the people looked my way. I smiled and told them that I would take these. They quickly offered a really cute dresser too, but we didn't have room. I asked if they would be around later, but they were headed back to Malibu. BOO!
I quickly grabbed my curbside goodness and off we went.
Apparently, I was so excited that I didn't take a before picture. Normally, I would blame my kiddos, but I honestly can't remember taking one.
Here is the after.
These tables were in really great shape. I didn't need to do any sanding before. I just made sure that I wiped them clean. I used two coats of light blue/grey DIY chalk paint. Distressed them and then glazed them with a chocolate brown glaze. It was my first time using brown glaze. I have to say that I really liked it. Next time, I think that I want it to be a little darker though. I waxed them down and then gave the hardware a little makeover with black spray paint.
I am happy to announce that my furniture business has picked up:) I am actually clean out of furniture right now. I guess not the worst problem to have. I did picked up a couple of pieces this weekend and will be working on them this week.
I also think that I may have finally convinced my hubby that I need a small truck!!! It is so frustrating finding a great deal and not being able to fit it in my SUV.
