Today is the first Themed Furniture Makeover Day for 2016. If you are new here, each month my friends challenge each other to make over a piece of furniture using a theme. This month the theme is “Shades of White.” My coffee table makeover didn’t follow my original plan but I love the end result.
I found this coffee table back in October at Goodwill. I started working on it then but got sidetracked with Thanksgiving and Christmas. January was the perfect time to start working on it again for this month’s challenge.
This piece is quite sturdy and had been used for years by children based on the crayon marks and stickiness found underneath. I’m sure it was factory made but the neat thing is that it’s signed underneath by the man who assembled it.
The legs were painted with “Sweet Cream” and the top with “Black Tie” both colors from The Plaster Paint Company. The paint was sealed with liquid wax also from The Plaster Paint Company.
This coffee table won’t stay in the living room but it may be used at the lake or sold. My beloved Blue Sky Cottage is closing tomorrow so for the time being I won’t have a shop to sell things. I’ve got my fingers crossed that a new opportunity may come my way.
I would like to have a coffee table in this room but it isn’t practical with Sherman (our dog). Mr. SP and Sherman use this area for wrestle and cuddle sessions each evening. It’s all about what Sherman wants or needs at our house!
The silver ice bucket on the chest is an estate sale find from the weekend. I actually scored two of them!
The chocolate set was a recent gift from my mom. We spotted it in an antique shop in Culpeper and when I said that I wanted it, my sweet Mama carried it to the counter and bought it for me. Can you picture ladies at the turn of the century sipping hot chocolate from these delicate cups?
Just so you know what life if really like at my house, here’s sweet Sherman in his usual daytime spot, on the sofa. He was wondering why i put the table in his way. He wouldn’t leave his spot so that I could take pictures until I rattled the treat jar in the kitchen, then he came running. If you look at my other pictures, you can see him in background resting. As soon as I finished my pictures, he was back in his spot. 🙂
“Shades of White” was a fun theme and I’m looking forward to seeing what my friends share. You can see all of my Themed Furniture Makeover Day pictures here.
