A Coffee Table Re-do

In my last post I told you that we went to a TS in Marshville. We found a coffee table (that was $10.00) for our den. We had a garden bench in front of the couch and I really liked it there. But when we re-arranged the living room we cornered the loveseat and two end tables and a coffee table were too much. So, we moved the garden bench and put it in front of the loveseat. It looks good there and we moved the coffee table to the den but I really didn't like it there. So when I saw the one in the TS I told Jimmy I wanted it. Here it is before....



It didn't really look too bad...it had some water rings on it. I was having the hardest time deciding what color to paint it. Well, I asked my friend Jenny and here is what she suggested.......



I absolutely love it! Jimmy painted it antique white then he distressed it. It looked whitewashed and he wanted to leave it like that. But when he put the stain on he was sold. Now we are going to replace the end tables in the living room with some old ones and I think we are going use this same color. I'll post about them later in the week. Also, the candle tray sitting on the table is the one I made following Char's tutorial.

I'm really behind on reading the blogs that I follow and if I haven't commented you in a while please forgive me. I'm gonna try to catch up on my reading tonight.

Have a great evening!

Blessings,

That man is outta control with the painting! He did a fabulous job! To bad they don't sell stock in thrift stores....the economy would be better than ever in no time! We would all owe Jimmy a big thank you hug for helping America get back on it's feet!!! LOL!!!
Seriously, it looks killer! I LOVE IT!! Can't wait to see what's next!

Very nice refinish on the coffee table. The quilted runner looks like it was made for it.
