A Not So Secret Christmas Present!

I got a phone call from Ania's awesome softball coach yesterday asking me if I could possibly do a little table for his wife for Christmas.  I could never say no cuz I just love her! :)

 The top was well loved.  He really liked the grain in it and so did I, so we opted to leave it natural.  He left the color up to me (that always makes me nervous!) so I went with the color of the cedar chest I recently did which she had commented on and said she liked. 

*Funny story.  The table had been in their bedroom and when he brought it to me she noticed it was missing.  She asked him about it and he told her he had "accidentally" broken the leg and it was at his dad's shop getting fixed.  She looked at him and said, "It's at Lisa's, isn't it!" Lol!!  So much for the Christmas surprise! :)  



I thought the top turned out really nice after all the spots it had previously, and I love how it pops against this color, too.

 I seriously love, love, love this color!  

 You may not know this about me, but I have a huge weak spot for flowers, too!  Gardening was my first love and I can't wait for spring so I can stick my hands back in the dirt.  It never ceases to amaze me how unique and intricate each flower is.  Lilies happen to be one of my faves.  How could they not be?  Just look at it! :)

I'm a little nervous about this one....hope she likes it!

My mommy is coming soon!! Woo hoo!!


  1. If she doesn't love it - I would sure be willing to take it! I love the color combo!

  2. Is it duck egg? I just used duck egg for the first time and love it. Also, what color did you use on the top? Looks amazing together. What's that flooring it's sitting on? Love it. :)


  3. Lisa - this is beautiful. You've inspired me.

  4. Looks wonderful! Great transformation!
