Fresh New Table

 This is How it Started:
  • scroll plate is from Pier 1
  • turquoise round place mat Target $1.99
  • bowl is thrifted, it was yellow but i spray painted it dover white.
  • lemons and limes bought at Roberts clearance store last year

I wanted this place mat to look a little more frilly.

 So I cut 2 strips of burlap about 3" wide and hot glued to the back of  the mat.

 this is what it looked like all done

This is how my table looks right now.  

You must know I re-did these chairs (painted & Reupholstered) and you can see how I did this HERE!

 I finally got ALL 4 chairs done yesterday! yeah and I think it looks so Fabulous!

                                                              AFTER                                                                                BEFORE                                                  
I distressed the legs a little to show off the
wood details

I think a little distressing is good because these


are vintage and they arent brand new....they have lots of character.

I did refinish this table as well...its a hand me down. Its an ANtique.  I Used to hate the way it looked. It had white spots where you could see when the people before us didnt use a hot pad and the heat developed a mark on the surface.  Me and my friend re-finished the top and painted and sealed the bottom in an Off white color.   

Hope you love! now go get busy on your next project :)
