Fleur-De-Lys Juice Glass
Can we just talk about the awesome things you can find at Goodwill? Sure.. there are some not-so-pretty things there too, but I have found some real treasures for our home that were begging for some TLC. Here's the one I am sharing with you today..
This farmhouse table was at one of our local Goodwill stores and I PROMISE this table is extremely photogenic. It's a really nice table.. don't get me wrong.. but the yellow color was that of a kitchen from the 70s. NOT CUTE! It was covered in tobacco juice, had leftover residue from stickers, and a few of the chairs were broken as well.
I really need to work on my posture and not looking like I hate the world when I'm making my natural face.. but you can see that the top was pretty scuffed up too. Probably from someone's elbow grease. Disgusting. It's a sturdy table though.. and I knew that Stefan and I could turn it into exactly what we wanted.
I am so pleased with how our table turned out! So glad we picked this up for 140 dollars.
Here's what we used, where we got it, and how many coats:
Stain - Two coats of Minwax Stain in Dark Walnut (Walmart)
Table Paint - Three coats of Glidden's 2 in 1 Paint and Primer (Semi Gloss) in Eloquent Ivory (Walmart)
Chair Paint - Two coats of Sherwin Williams Rainwashed
|Rainwashed by Sherwin Williams|
We went back and forth on painting the chairs blue but went with it to add a pop of color. I'm on the lookout for a blue bowl of some sort to use as a centerpiece.
I love how the leaf looks built in. We plan to always have the table be at it's longest.
I love the character too!
Before and After
Can't wait to get this set out of Stefan's parents' garage and into our house next week!! Let me know what you think!
