Folding Table Transformation

May 5, 2013

Today I wanted to share with you the reveal of one of my $1.99 Goodwill folding "T.V" tables.  I first mentioned them here, where I used them in the family room as props for my Captain's Lanterns photo shoot.

 Don'tcha just love the lantern? 

Anywho, there it is, in all it's glory.  Plain old, plain old, right?  But I just knew it was destined for greatness.
In comes Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, Paris Grey, along with a can of Rustoleum
matte white spray paint.  And voila.

I decided to switch up the foyer a bit just to show off this pretty little table in all her glory.

I finally took out the table that had been there for 9 years and replaced it with my cedar chest, swathed in another Goodwill purchase, an embroidered curtain panel (new from Target) I got for a song.  The down pillows and striped pillow covers are from Ikea. I made the cake stand myself and the cloche is from, you guessed it, Goodwill.

I played around with putting the table on either side of the trunk, and here you can see the most recent spring visitors courtesy of my daughter and a little neighbor who picked them for us.

I was going to transfer them to one of my many glass containers, but I thought that they actually didn't look half bad in the beer drinking glass that my daughter put them in.

I'm liking it seated on the right with the cloche best.

What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you're having a great weekend!

Nice redo! I also like it by the stairs - looks out of balance on the other side.
Hope you are enjoying the weekend.

I think that's the perfect spot for it, almost looks like it was made just for that space. Love your fabulous GW transformation!
