A Table's Makeover & A New Painting

 While driving by one of our local antique shops a few weeks ago, I spotted this cute little table outside in the front of the store. Made a quick u-turn (thank goodness there was no cops around) and went to check it out. Don't mind our deck, this was before I stained it.
 Taking a closer look at the table you can see it was in pretty bad shape, but I had a vision and for $20 it came home with me.
 Surprisingly I didn't whip out the paint, instead I used this...
 And turned it into this...

  ...and that's the new painting that I just purchased from Linsey over @ The Farmhouse Porch
Linsey is an AMAZING artist and she has more of her beautiful paintings for sale on her blog.


 I just love my new painting! This one is called "Evening Clearing"
Some night shots.


  Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!! 
                         Have a great week!

Hi Martina! Oh, I can't believe your little table turned out so beautifully with just the stain. It looks great. Love how you've dressed her too. The painting is very lovely.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Your little table looks like a very nice antique now! I know that took more work than just painting it. Sometimes you just need the warmth of real wood in a room. I didn't know that Linsey was an artist. Such a pretty painting! Looks like it found a nice home at your house.

Pamela said...

Martina I am in love with your table!!! Oh my you are truly lucky to own one of Linseys paintings!! I hope to own one one day as well. She actually lives just around the corner from me. We met over at Savvy Southern Style during WOW one week.

Ahhh! The little painting looks so at home in its new home! I cant believe how beautifully your wall color partners with it. And the table is gorgeous! It's the perfect size. I'm always looking for little side tables like that and I never find any that cute. I'm so thrilled you love it, and even more thrilled that it went to a friend.

I really love the new side table. I think you made the right decision in adding some nourishing stain to the wood. It turned out perfect, and the painting fits right in.

Martina..I don't blame you..I'd have done a quick U turn too for that cutie. The table is darling and "she" has such cute legs. LOVE your vignette! I'm off to see Linsey's blog and check out her paintings.
