Love at First Sight

We are so excited to show you our first furniture makeover. It is Valentine’s Day and we are in LOVE with our $18 shabby chic table!!

Do you remember what it looked like before? We loved it as soon as we saw it. However, we wanted to give it a more rustic feel.

The table was $10 at Goodwill. The paint and wax were $8 at Michaels after coupon. We have plenty left for future projects…yippee!

We started by painting it with chalk paint…

Then we sanded it…

Here it is before we applied a coat of wax…

And here is the final project!! The dark wax gave it an antique finish.

I found a couple of other treasures this weekend. I am starting to like milk glass. I truly am becoming my mother.

I found the 2 compotes below at St. Vincent de Paul. They are identical. One was marked at $1.25 and one was priced at $4. The lady sold them to me for $1.25 each!

After doing a little surfing on Pinterest; I discovered that they are part of a set of 3. Now I am on a mission to find the others.

Bingo! My hubby spotted the large one shown above yesterday. We stopped at the Valley Thrift in Fairfield on our way to meet my sister for dinner.

Now I just need the small ones. They interlock to make a 3 tier centerpiece…how cute!

image

We also found these tall candlesticks shown below at Valley Thrift for $6. I might paint them an antique white.

My girls had a great visit with their cousins at McDonald’s. It even had a fireplace!

I hope you had a nice weekend with family too. I will be back soon with more treasures.
