Before and After ~ A Vintage Coffee Table Makeover :)

Good evening lovely friends,

I picked up this little vintage coffee table a couple of months ago, and I finally got around to finishing it on the weekend.  I tend to get projects to about 80-90% complete and get distracted by the next project or random shiny object!

Here she is before, I was drawn to her lovely turned and carved legs ooh la la baby;



She was quite scratched up and way more shabby than chic....


 

After much sanding, painting and waxing...




Here she is After... (insert wolf whistle here)...











Love and light... :)

  3. I just popped over from Karen's (Restyled Vintage) for a visit and can't leave without making a comment on that table transformation - the job you've done on it is incredible.

    Off now to take a look thru more of your blog :)

  4. Hi Jo, so nice to see Norma has popped over after seeing your comment on my blog, I am sure she is glad to find you, I know I am :) I've never met Norma but she always leaves the sweetest comments, and like me she is a Kiwi so I just know she must be a great chick ;)

    Now, that table is gorgeous, but I had to laugh at you saying you get distracted by the latest shiny object, I so do that too! What is that about! I cannot help myself, seriously. Like the other week I scored a table from the roadside, and instead of first finishing the other 6 things I already had on the go, I decided to sand the table top. Then of course got distracted with that, so it sits all sanded and ugly looking, while I go off onto the next thing, haha! I was strict with myself yesterday and only worked on one (half done) piece (a bookcase). Still haven't finished it though! Is that Limed White or Limed White Half on the table legs? That is what I am putting on the half done bookcase, such a nice colour!

    xx Karen

    1. Thank you lovely Karen, I'm loving discovering so many new (to me) blogs and meeting lots of lovely new friends. Agreed Kiwis are top chicks... one of my bffs is a Kiwi ;)

      So glad it's not just me.. you should see my garage, much to my hubby's displeasure it's piled high with projects (I so need a workshop/studio!). On this coffee table, after priming I used an aqua enamel on the legs in a vintage white, about 3 coats. Can't wait to see your bookcase!
