My table re-do with new wood top!!

Oh – you guys, i am SO excited to show you my transformed table!  I love it so much and after wanting to make the change for a couple years, am so glad i finally did it! It was a fairly easy re-do with a big impact, i dont know why i waited so long! Anyways – its done now :) This is the last pic i took of my table.  It was a good decent table that wasnt exactly cheap so i just didnt want to get rid of it, plus i really like the lines of the chairs.  But what i hated so much besides it being black, was the table top.  It had all these lines in it to mimic wood planks and trying to keep it clean (on top of being black) was a nightmare. Plus the black was so heavy and just didnt flow with […]

> This is a little 411 on how to make some new wood look old – or in my case my old wood look old again. I sanded down my craft table with a palm sander to get all the potential slivers away and i was left with a table that had a “fresh wood” look – well, that was definitely not the look i was after.  I loved how the table looked prior to sanding, and i wanted that same old gray weathered look back.  I decided to sand it down and seal it because i want the top to get even more beat up – i didn’t want glass or anything on top. Before sanding… After sanding…yuk, too new for me :( I did a little google searcharoo and found a few how-to’s to gray wood.  I picked the easiest one and gave it a shot.  One piece […]

{my version of a farmhouse table}

  Dear Santi (current husband), I have recently fallen for a new fella.  He’s massive, rugged, huge, sturdy, he will support me in all my crafty endeavors – which you currently groan about.  He doesnt mind a little spilled paint,  glitter , fabric thrown about, papers and tools everywhere.  He wont complain when i leave a giant mess on his huge top, he understands me – he knows that i am a messy girl.  We just get each other… I could go on and on about my new love, i could tell you how much i love his big strong wood, but i wouldnt want to make you jealous (and i dont want to lose readers for being nasty!).  Anyways, i am sorry but you must move on so my new fella can move in                                                                                                                                     Sausha   Yup, that’s what i would say – and tonight if  i […]
