Vintage Market Days in Wichita is just a week away and I have been scurrying to finish painting some furniture to add to my usual artsy crafty offerings. I have a couple pieces finished, and have a few more pieces that I hope to have done by then! Unfortunately I don’t have before photos of these dilapidated pieces. This little magazine table had been buried beneath a pile of unwanted junk. Not only was the dark brown finish water stained and dusty, but some of the slats had fallen out of the side and one was missing all together. My husband did a wonderful job fixing it back up and putting a very nice coat of warm gray paint on it. Then he turned it over to me!
I used my own newly designed circus stencil on top, then free painted here and there on the rest of the table.
Turned out pretty cute! I think this would be adorable in a nursery, or child’s room, or sunny porch….
This second piece started out a mess. It had been in the weather at some point in it’s long life, and the veneer was warped and peeling. My husband patiently removed, repaired, and sanded until she was once again a thing of beauty. Soft pink paint, and vintage looking paper and more paint, and sealer, and finally some beautiful glass knobs and she has been transformed!
Hope you can come see all the lovelies… and don’t forget to pick up something for Mom!
