Wanted to show you guys my latest work…they are happily in their new home now (hey Ashley!)
Here is her coffee and end tables before:
I should have taken a better “before”, but I honestly was smitten with the “pottery barn look of them” that I was ready to get to work! (Can you tell I’ve got a bit going on in the garage….and can you also see the exersaucer in the bottom left corner when I have little A out there with me? 🙂
Look at those legs…almost identical!
We talked about a white with distressing, so that’s the direction we went….
and this is the hardware I picked out,
but alas, it was not in stock, so I worked the wooden knobs (also very pb) into the design of the tables.
And here is the updated look Ashley got without stepping into a furniture store:
I love the casual and laidback feel I get when I look at them…and I couldn’t help but put a vintage coke tray on it!
And the coffee table:
again, please mind the mess of our home!
I actually love the knobs as well as the pull! The pull will dress them up a bit, but it’s wonderful to have a second look from such a small change. As I was distressing, I really only went lighter, focusing on the edges and corners, sometimes going all the way to the wood, but sometimes stopping at the green that was underneath.
Which I love, by the way. It’s unexpected and it will help blend them back into their original home.
Hope you love them, Ashley and they are a blessing to your home!
On a side note, my lovely friends, it seems I’m so busy these days between painting, bloggin, nursing the girl, chasing the boy, crafting, cooking, wifing, etc., that I do not seem to be able to visit every single one of you all the time!! I try so very hard, so just know I appreciate you all so much and I’ll hopefully I’ll see you at your place soon!
And another side note, I am putting a hold on new jobs this week, because in the very near future, a certain family is heading on a very special trip! So, I need a favor from you guys….since there won’t be much cottage-inspired decor or furniture transformations going on while I’m vacating, I would love for 5 of you to submit a tutorial or transformation as a guest post so that I can share it with our readers while I’m away!!
To be fair, I’ll take the first 5 that comment on this post…the post should be a tutorial for something you created or “fixed up” or it could be a furniture transformation, because I’m kind of a sucker for those! Be sure to leave your URL to your post and your email in your comment as well!
Can’t wait to see what you come up with!!
