I often talk about how much we love our customers! They are the most loyal, supportive and enthusiastic group of people ever. And we always love to hear that something they found at Elizabeth & Co. makes them happy!
This little round accent table came from the side of the road, literally! I actually drove right past it on my way home one night. But luckily I saw my friend Renae walking her dog right around the corner. The very first thing she said to me was, "Did you see it?" "See what?" "The furniture up the street." I quickly made a U-turn and Renae helped me load it all up! My husband pulled up just as we were finishing. "So what are you girls up to?" he asked, knowing exactly what we were up to!
And for those of you who have asked, it's not like we find free furniture on the side of the road everyday. But we do live in a community with designated bulk trash pick up days, so sometimes we just get lucky!
The funny thing about this little table was that someone decided it needed to be a little taller.
Well that's one way to do it!
I had a feeling this one was going to bleed through, so I primed it with my new HomeRight Finish Max Fine Finish Sprayer. You can check out my review here.
The paint is a pretty blue gray - a mix of leftover paint.
I know skipping the primer step is all the rage now, but I like the way the white shows through when you distress a primed piece.
Before painting, I removed the extra blocks of wood and used wood filler to close the holes - good as new!
And I added a little white glaze to the top for a softer look and finished up with a coat of wipe on poly.
This one got snatched right up at our summer tag sale. And a few days later I received a sweet note from Amanda, along with a few photos. This was Amanda's first visit to one of our tag sales and she was thrilled to find the perfect accent table for between her fireplace and chair ...
and a little pillar for a bird cage she already had. Little unexpected finds that make Amanda smile. And that makes us smile too!
