Just a little table

So, most of you guys know I occasionally score "finds" at the "swap-shop" at the local recycle center......

My latest is a little side table. I knew immediately what I wanted to do with it! Miranda and Richard needed a little table to set on their porch - and this one can be customized to match their house!

Here's a close-up of the pretty top

After a few little repairs, the table got a good primer coat - then a couple of coats of exterior paint.

Starting to add some color! (I borrowed their house paint!!)

Pretty yellow accents

And lastly - some very bright blue!!!

A little hard to see - but I got a sheet of glass cut for the top. Ready for delivery!

Hey Karen! Great job on the table. I bet Richard and Miranda were surprised.

Miranda said...

I was so surprised by Karen's wonderful gift! Beautiful and so creative! When she asked to borrow the paint I had no clue what project it was going into!

Now to find some patio chairs to match it!

Thank you Karen! I love it!
