So this past week I took a step away from the Stand and decided to do some updating in my own home! It all started with my entryway table… ugh… I hated that thing. It was some cheap piece from Wal-Mart. It had a glass centerpiece that was forever collecting dust and terribly hard to clean. My husband liked it, though. Why, I will never know. But anyways, this is what I did to it!
Ta-Da! Pretty cool, right? Just wait till you see it all put together…that’s right I didn’t stop with the table!
But first, let me show you how I transformed this table! First thing I did was take out the glass, sand it down and painted it white. (Sorry, I was in the zone… no pics of this step)
Then I had these pieces of trim, that were given to me by a friend who was cleaning out his workshop (Sweeeet!) I love free stuff!!
These pieces of trim fit perfectly width wise… crazy, right? Meant to be! I did however, have to cut the length a bit.
The trim was white, and that just would’t work, so I chose a nice blue color. It is from Country Chic Paints and the shade is Elegance.. I love it! One of my favs!
To attach the board into the centerpiece where the glass use to be, I simply just screwed in some support beams using scrap wood.
This stuff is my best friend!! Antiquing Wax from Country Chic Paints. You just rub it on and rub it in, and it give your furniture that rustic character.
So I put everything back together …
Except now I had a problem… my walls brought the whole look down…ugh! Way too much white!! Well I had to do something about that, so what did I do? …
I PAINTED THE WALL!! 🙂 A nice coat of paint can fix anything!!
Way better, right? What do you think? Let me know!! Comment below!
I just love my old postage pillows, too!!
Share your home projects with me! I am always looking for more inspiration!! 🙂
