I was actually picking up a dresser from a CL ad and the lady who was selling was moving to AZ and needed to get rid of her things. Those situations always make me feel bad because I knew she was desperate and she kept saying, "I have more. Do you want to see?" I took the tour of her house and actually found several items. When she came to this table she said, "Do you want this, too?" I didn't, lol, but I felt so bad for her that I agreed to buy it. It's been sitting in my garage for a while, and I haven't been feeling very motivated lately (burnout I think). Yesterday I decided this would be a small (and quick) makeover. Ha! I ended up having to peel veneer off the top and on closer inspection it was pretty rough in places, so needed a little extra care.
I ended up going a little whimsical with it and thought it turned out pretty darned cute. :)
It looks cute from the front, but it's the sides I love!! :)
My daughter is so in love with owls right now, and I secretly am too! And, how could you not be? Aren't the adorable??
The front needed a little extra something, too, so I drilled a hole and added one of my favorite knobs.
I mimicked the flowers from the sides on the top with a few stripes and gave it a good distressing.
The paint wanted to chip so I just went with it.
(Mostly that means I wasn't going to put in any more time to paint over it and start again. Shhh...)
Would be so sweet next to a little punkin's bed. :)
