Flea Market Style Table

I’m not big on posting my not-quite-completed projects, but I’m so excited about this one that I wanted to share it.

My friend Valerie (whom I’ve talked about here before, and from whom I got the chairs to both the Apple Green Desk and the Studded Desk) told me that she loved and wanted to have a table like the one on the front of Flea Market Style Magazine.  You know the one:

P1030428

Pale, barely-there turquoise with heavy distressing.  Oh yes.  That’s something I can sink my teeth into, for sure!

When she mentioned it, this table that I had sitting around waiting to be attended to came to mind.

P1030206

So today, I whipped out some pale turquoise oops paint that I got from Ace Harware for $5 for a gallon (Ace is my FAVORITE and cheapest place to go for mistints.)  I still want to do a little more distressing on it, and then I’m going to do a dark stain on the exposed bare wood to make it looks a little more like the inspiration table, but I love the way it’s turning out!!!

Valerie has a set of metal chairs that we’re going to work on and put together with the table, I believe, so I’ll update you when the whole set is complete and together.

Have a fantastic weekend!!
