A Tale of Two Tables...

A while back I made over two
end tables for a client's living room
& I wanted to share them with you.
But first I wanted to share a few exciting things with you!
First of all if you are a follower of 
you probably already know that
I got my own booth this week at a local antique store!
I was so excited because it's been something
I have wanted for a while now.
It's a little short notice so my inventory is not
what I wanted it to be.. but hey. It's my "Space" now
& it will become more "me" over time. 
 If you are in the area
go to my Facebook page for directions, & come visit!
Second exciting thing....
I am a guest blogger this week for Birchbox!!
Each day I am blogging about something different
Go check them out here.

Anyways back to those tables...
{but thank you for joining me in my exciting news!!}


Isn't she lovely? I love the detail down the sides.


I used wood stain to antique the table
after I painted it a soft white. 


A little close up of the detail.. just in case you 
wanted to get really close. 


Table number two is my favorite...
I love the bead board look on the top.


Even though these tables are obviously very different,
the antiquing detail makes them the perfect pair.


The client chose the sterling silver hardware
for the second table.


I wish that I had before pictures of these tables,
but ummm yah, they no longer exsist.. so the
after pictures will have to do!


I hope you like these two custom painted tables
that I did, I was really happy with how they turned out
& it was fun because it was a new method for me. 
The client was very happy & that is what I love!
I hope you are all having a great week..
my week has been amazing & super busy
& this weekend will be even better...
hubby & I will be heading to Myrtle Beach, SC
to celebrate our 4 year wedding anniversary...
Where have those 4 years gone?!?
Thanks for stopping by!!
