::Limeade:: Side Table Makeover

Who is ready for Summer? Me! I find there is such excitement around each upcoming season. No matter what time of the year is around the corner I get excited about what that season will bring. This year we are finishing up Sam and Maggie’s first year at the BIG school, Jon and I are completing our second round leading Financial Peace University, and then there is Cate…and Cate is 2…enough said, right?! So in just 2 more short weeks Summer kicks off at this house! I am ready to park it at the pool for the next couple of months but first we are going to visit Mickey and Minnie! Yep…the kids are so stinkin’ excited! I have some really fabulous memories as a kid at Disney World and I can’t wait to make those memories for my kids! This is your warning…Disney pictures coming soon!


On to the furniture re-fabu-lication business. I finished up several projects this week but these say Summer to me for sure. The before…

After…

I primed this pair and painted them with an oops paint from Benjamin Moore. They were very green…maybe too green…so I decided they needed some pizazz to tone down the green a bit. I broke out the Silhouette and whipped up some vinyl dandelions. I placed them on the table top and then coated the top with 2 coats of Annie Sloan Pure White. I distressed everything but more heavily on the white as I wanted the green to show through more. I painted the hardware white and distressed it as well.


These are a custom order for my friend, Stephanie. I love that she is not afraid of color and she gives me creative reign. Thanks Steph, you are awesome!

Furniture Rehab…take 2

Furniture rehab will be a series of posts as I have several furniture projects going on right now. Below is a coffee table I picked up last Summer at a yard sale and completely forgot about it until the hubs was cleaning out his shop and very ummm…politely….yea that’s it…reminded me that it was time I did something with it. I had already done the not so fun prep work of cleaning and sanding so then it was just a matter of what to do. I am always a sucker for green…absolutely my most favorite color. Happy to say this baby has already been sold! Until next time…happy creating!
