Henrietta Table


i love this table.  i have no place in my home for another piece of furniture but that has not kept me from cramming it into my very small foyer.  i thrifted this table for a pittance.  the owner said he thought the table had been in a fire (it did smell a little bit like cookout drive thru).  the unattractive linoleum glued to the top almost made me change my mind.  but after a few hours of power sanding, a few coats of paint and wax, it is one of my favorite pieces.

This WAS my dining room


This (was) is my dining room. I just got in a shipment of Annie Sloan chalk paint and immediately painted our cherry finish dining room table. In this picture you can see where the entire table has been painted and I has then added wax to the one leg.

In the background are three other projects in various states.
