Before & shabby table

Today, I wanted to share my recent yard sale find with you...this cute little table, which was screaming for a make-over. I don't know where I found time to stop at yard sales & paint furniture (hubby thought I went out to get bagels and wondered why I was gone for 3 hours...)

I love before & after photos, it's fun to see the transformation.
I think everything has potential...

I saved you from having to view a close-up of the bird droppings (euw!) and stickers on the table top. I cleaned and sanded it all off before giving this little darling a make-over.

Ta-da! A cute Shabby table!

I love the (artificially) distressed look!

I love Shabby! I never get tired of it. Of course, I had to tell hubby that it's supposed to look this way and DON'T PAINT it! He loves to walk around the house with his can of touch-up paint and this one is off limits! ;)

I couldn't resist adding this shabby applique! Love it! Glad I kept some for myself, I thought I had sold out of them all.

Next week, I'll share with you another "before" & "after" furniture make-over...

You have made your table utterly gorgeous. What is it with men....they really don't understand shabby chic do

Terrific makeover! The color you chose is fabulous and the rose appliqué is wonderful - especially with the addition of the blue touches on it. Make SURE hubby leaves it alone. It's perfect just the way it is.

Thanks for linking to the party. I would love to have you link up each week.

By the way, I just joined you as a follower. ;)
