I saw this table on my local FB classifieds. It was sad...sad...sad. Nobody wanted it. Someone went to look at it and left it behind. I went to check it out and realized it was in pretty rough shape.
The hinges were broken on the flip top and there was some disgusting sticker peeling off the top. I knew I could fix her up though. :)
Some of you must have a little faith in me because I listed this on my FB just like this and it still sold. :)
My client said she was thinking of something in Robin Egg blue, which is one of my favorite colors and along the lines of what I had intended for this piece when I bought it.
*Little side story. I bought this about a month ago and it's been sitting in my garage. I had a few custom orders to finish up before I got to it. When I decided to refinish it I knew what I wanted to do, but second guessed myself and ended up listing it on FB. I thought if someone bought it and told me what they wanted it would be better. As soon as it was sold I was so sad! Lol! My hubby thinks I'm nuts and I think he just may be right! I wanted to do what I wanted to do. Well, upon talking with the woman who purchased it she said I was thinking something along the lines of Robin Egg blue and you can do whatever you want with it. Really?
So, it all worked out in then end. :)
When I finished painting it and doing the paper on the drawer front I put on the knob I had originally bought for it and just wasn't happy. It just didn't look like I had imagined it would. So, I made an impromptu visit to HL and found the perfect fix. :)
It is so sweet. I did dry brush a little Chappel Green from Farrow and Ball on it to give the color a little depth, but it's very subtle. That color will be on an upcoming project, too!
This top came a long way!! I peeled the sticker, sanded it smooth, and then gave it a coat of Java Gel from General Finishes.
psst...I love my little milk bottles!
Another successful rescue! :)
