REMINDER: Bei FIORI Giveaway
is going on now!! Come Enter!
I thought I would share two items that were finally completed recently.
First up, our new side table.
My dad made this table for my by copying a table that my grandparents had.
I had it for for quite some time but with the weather being so cold and nasty I finally got to work on it. It took me about a month or so to finish, again because of the weather, but I am thrilled how it turned out.
Here is a shot of the table unfinished.
I started by priming and painting the whole thing a light gray color.
Then I stained the top.
This was after a coat or two but in the end, I put on 3 coats of stain.
Followed by 2 coats of poly.
Here is the table complete. Here you can see the gray though it is kind of hard to tell.
It has a drawer in it and we just purchased a knob from Hobby Lobby the other day so hopefully that will be on soon.
I love how dark the top came out in the end as well.
Next up, was a revamp of this little guy.
Remember this cheese dome?
Well, it got a makeover and is now a cupcake dome but I guess you can still use it for cheese too.
Here it is after the makeover.
I went out and found some clear chunky candlesticks at an antique store and it worked perfectly!
I love it this way now!
Shot of the top.
Candlestick. Simple but Chunky= Perfect! 🙂
So there you have it!
