Diane at A Picture is Worth a 1,000 Words is hosting "Trash to Treasure Tuesdays," which is a great idea. Be sure to visit Diane to see her clever transformations of trash to treasure.
I spotted this cute little table at a yard sale and, although it was kind of banged up and its paint was peeling, I loved it.
I asked the lady the price and was delighted when she said, "$2.00?" -- with a question mark at the end like that might be too much! I hurriedly paid her for it and ran to my car with it before she could change her mind.
After I got it home and looked at it more closely, I decided that the paint was too "chippy" for the "distressed" look I wanted, so I decided to paint it a cream color and distress it myself. That called for sanding some of the paint off and I and my "little helper," Avery, went right to work ...
Well, to make a long story a little shorter, I sprayed the table a cream color, but didn't like the way it looked ... so I abandoned the project for a couple of weeks.
Not long after that, I was in Wal-Mart and bought a can of flat black spray paint and figured if I didn't like the table painted black, I could just use it in the garage or somewhere. I sprayed it black and decided I really liked the way it turned out.
Thank you, Diane, for hosting "Trash to Treasure Tuesdays" ... I look forward to seeing everyone's "new treasures."
