It has been a crazy couple of weeks around here but I am back and trying to finish up some projects that have been stashed in my garage and utility room for too long!
This past summer I picked up a few free pieces and one of them was a table top. It came from a shop that we used to go into all the time near the Island. One day we drove up and it was out of business but they left some things outside with a cardboard sign that said FREE! We picked up a pallet and the tabletop. The tabletop had paint smeared across it and the laminate was pulling away from the sides. I didn’t care it was free and I knew we could turn it into something. My son no longer ask me WHY? or ARE YOU SURE? He just says I will load it up for you…Thanks B.K.
The pallet is still sitting in the utility room but I finally painted painted the tabletop. Then it sat for a few more weeks until I could find a base. Two weeks ago we took a trip to the Island to finish up a few last minute things there and made a quick stop at one of my favorite spots and YES I found a table base. I had found one there before and I was back and forth trying to decide if I really liked it…and I am so glad I waited because I found this…..
and I knew it would be perfect for the tabletop!
It is kind of hard to tell in the photo but it kind of has a yellow tint to it but I knew that I could paint it so it was no big deal. The other thing you can’t tell from the photo is that the base it metal which I love. Here is the end result….
I just set it up in my living room so I could show you how it turned out. I used Annie Sloan chalk paint in Graphite for the tabletop and rubbed a bit of the Pure White paint over it so it wasn’t so flat. Once that was dry I stenciled the longitude and latitude of the Island. On the base I also used the Pure White. Super easy and I think it turned out great!
Come back later and I will show you some of my other finds and the odds and ends that we did at the Island Home before prepping the house for Winter!
