The Square Round End Table

First off, I'd like to remind you about my giveaway for a free My Memories' digital scrapbooking software package. Click HERE to read all about its amazing features and how to enter. I'm extending it till Monday, so you still have time!


I'm working hard to try and paint all the big pieces in the garage so as to make room, but they appear to be multiplying instead of diminishing, lol! Anybody else has that problem? This is what it looks like:

It ain't pretty behind the scene, folks!

Sooooo, it doesn't seem like my goal of getting the garage empty of all the furniture to be painted before the winter will materialize, so I'm facing another winter of parking outside, lol! First world problems, am I right?

In any case, I did manage to finish a few items that I delivered to Rustic and Refined Interiors this week, one of which was this little table. I found it at a garage sale and I paid a little more than I normally would, but I thought it had really appealing details.

It is both square and round, proving you can be versatile in life!

It has some rough spots.

 (Here is my dog Coco photobombing. Both she and the cat love to do this! 
They're like children, ooooh, Mom's got the camera out! Let's get in the shot!)

I chose French Linen for the top and the rim and Old White for the legs and the stencilling on top. I decided to keep the square on top, so I used Frog Tape to mark it off. Seeing as it is a little bit on the pricey side, I save my Frog Tape for when I need to create neat lines and detailing.

A little stencil detail in the centre for added interest.

I chose not to do any distressing, keeping it neat and clean lined instead.

This table is now at the store, awaiting its new home.

I'm working on a beautiful antique server that was left at the curb. Yes. Left at the curb. Free. Nothing wrong with it, it has beautiful hardware and everything. Wait till you see it!
