Grab A Fork and Check Out This Makeover


We picked up this pretty cute table last year.  I t sat in the store for months and months and didn’t sell. 

Well…maybe it was just a little TOO ROUGH.  The top was splitting and it needed some love.  At first I tried to work with what I had, but, alas it just had to be repalced.
Once the new top was in place, it’s charms were able to really show through.  Nice size, nice shape, great little drawer.
So…I decided to go Provence Blue with it (because I had that on hand).  A new handle really helped achieve the look I was going for.

How about a little whimsy?  That’s almost ALWAYS good in my book.
So I added the silverware details on the drawer. 

Lined the drawer with some nice soft brown textured fabric..
I didn’t take a photo of it, but though back of this drawer had a secret compartment.  It would be a great place to hide a little mad money….Fun…right?
I added a couple fun yard sale chairs that were super well made and sporting that colonial home maple finish.  I painted them Old White and added the form and spoon details to both the front an d back of the chairs.
Now…let me apologize for my far and few between posts lately.  I’ve been really BUSY keeping up with my Etsy shop (always a good thing). 
I am always amazed by those woman out there (you know who you are) who manage to post just about every day, no matter what.  I have fallen short on that lately and hope to improve in that area.
Heck….we can only do so much, right?  But aren’t you just AMAZED at some of these SuperWomen???

Glad I had a moment to check in with you all today.  My furniture inventory is getting really LOW.  In fact, we could probably park TWO cards in our three car garage now…Wow!
I’m ready for yard sales to start up again.
Thanks for checking in with me and hanging with Starview Sonnet, even though the posts are slow in coming.
I appreciate it more than you could know!
Have a wonderful evening.
