Instead of a tray top, I designed this piece to look like a vintage wash stand. With wood and supplies left from the other table, I only needed to purchase two glass knobs and sand paper. Once built, I stained it with Minwax Early American and let it dry overnight.
Ginene, of Fox and Finch Antiques, held a recent Springtime Thank You give-away. I was the fortunate recipient of a Green Grass Yankee Candle! It couldn’t have arrived on a better day. It was cold, windy, rainy and I had indoor recess duty. 😕
Ahhhh! The wondrous, light smell of green grass . . .
Ginene lives above her antique shop in a renovated 1929 bank building in the quaint Village of Richmond, Illinois just off the Wisconsin line. To follow her adventures as a historical building owner, or for a variety of tutorials, or to learn more about her antique shop; come pull up a chair, grab a cup of tea and visit FoxandFinch.Worpdress.com.
So . . . Thank you very much Ginene! You made my day!
It has arrived! The box was on my doorstep when I arrived home from a long-g-g snow makeup day at school. I participated in the Pretty Handy Girl’s Valspar Paint Sample Giveaway promo featured in the Library Makeover Reveal post.
The sample chip and the complementary colors palette were missing (per pamphlet), but I was stoked regardless. The opened box revealed a sample of Valspar Glass Tile, 2 mini rollers and a mini tray.
I love this color! I can’t wait to roll this lovely, soothing sample on the wall as part of an ongoing bedroom project. I’ll let you know how it turns out! 😉
Last I checked I was living on the Virginia coast? Two snowfalls in two weeks. The good: the school snow days off has allowed me to work on a room that desperately needs updating. The bad: we’ll have to make up these days. 😦
tired. tired. tired.
This room begs for updated lighting, bedside tables, new scatter rugs, bedding and window treatments.
The first task, finding the right bedside table, proved a little harder than I thought.
But, finally after months searching I figured out what it was that I wanted. I want a combination of Ana White’s farm table plan . . . a green side table I saw on a Pinterest board . . .
This shabby pail was created from one of the saved beer buckets from our daughter’s DIY Vintage Rustic Wedding. The only item I purchased was the spray paint. It was a quick project and was super easy.
