Harlequin table anyone?
Isn't it pretty?
I started out with two of these. I have this "place" I like to go to pick up furniture. Close to the cottage there is a retired guy who goes to all kinds of auctions and sales and picks up "stuff" he thinks he can sell for really good prices.
So two weeks ago I picked up these.
Aren't they pretty?
I knew one of them would be mine. I'm now using it as my bedside table at the cottage.
I needed to make it match the one I did for my husband. So now it looks like this.
Once our summer is over and we head to much cooler weather I will be working on our bedroom and taking lots of pictures. But for now, know that it does look wonderful beside my bed. :)
I can't believe that all these details were not destroyed at any point in it's history.
Now for the Harlequin table.
I wanted to keep the integrity of the table but update it. So it too was stripped down, sanded and the taping off began.
This is such a simple but fun pattern to do. You can do so many things and I plan on switching it up for another project later this week.
Finally got it all put together and done.
Glazing and distressing....and it's perfect!
I couldn't be happier.
It's ready to be sold....now to find the perfect home. :)
