Newest addition to our family....

{other than Jax, of course!}
....is this lovely side table. For the longest time, we've been using a tray table, and well...that's just ghetto (add it to the list...). So, I've been keeping an eye out when I go thrifting for the perfect table. I found one once a few months ago....and of course, passed it up! I thought about that durn table for WEEKS! (Just like the frame I passed up last week...sigh...shoulda bought it!!) But finally, for $5.99 I found one! Thanks to my thrifting friend, I didn't pass this one up! It was a normal shade of brown....so, of course, I busted out the spray paint and gave it some new life!!
This time...I used a primer! I've never used it before on any other projects...but now I know the error of my ways...cause this table turned out so much smoother!
I had to add a little "me" factor to it, too...just couldn't help myself! I've never used Mod Podge before on fabric...but I've seen it done time and time again over on Mod Podge Rocks, so I had to give it a try! James doubted me...that I wouldn't be able to close the drawer....but alas! It closes! For now... Ü
All it needs now is some new knobs....or spray painting the old ones?? White or black, people? Feedback would be nice!

I actually use Mod Podge for MANY of my crafts...it's such cool stuff. I used it to make a burlap flag, just in time for the 4th! I'll have to blog about that later because.....
I need to go and get ready...it's almost time for.....
ECLIPSE!!!!!

What about silver?

Jenny said...

Yeah, what about silver or pewter? That might be cute.

I am completely in love with this side table (as I was the chairs before it)! Great job, artsy lady!
