ANTIQUE TABLE MAKEOVER

Good Morning! This was one of my projects yesterday. I found TWO of these old vintage vanity style end tables the other day and had been debating on painting them or not. I know what you are thinking......."they look hidieous....why would you NOT paint them????" Well this color is great in the right setting espicially if you like to decorate in the cottge style. I held off for a few days to mull it over and finally decided that if I did do a make-over , they would appeal to more buyers with a neutral look sooooooooooooooo..........................
I went ahead and painted them white, distressed and antiqued them, added some old knobs and there ya go. I like them ALOT better. It is hard to tell from the photo but it looks really neat with the turquois paint coming through. I am going to take them up to the SLEEPY POET ANTIQUE MALL today.
On another note, here is something you might enjoy. I had a really nice girl and her husband come to shop on Saturday for the first time. She asked if she could take some pictures for her blog to do a post. Well you have to go see what a great job she did! I was so touched at all her kind words and compliments. If you go to visit her blog www.deesullivan.blogspot.com look for one of her blog entries for Tues. May 19th called Olde Tyme Marketplace and you will be able to take a peek inside the shop through her eyes! Thanks Dee, you are too kind!
Well I am off to get this day started. I sure hope you all are going to have a nice productive stress free day.

I finally got the gift for your friend in the mail yesterday. Sorry, it took so long... I've been wrapping up things for the school year and kept forgetting to get it in the mail.
