I loved the quirky shape of this little bookstand/library table. It was in pretty rough (and very dirty) shape when I got a hold of it.
I gave it a good scrubbing with some white vinegar to prepare for painting. I knew I wanted to embrace the primitive nature of this little table, so I picked up some Yellow Ochre Milk Paint from The Real Milk Paint Co. and went for it. It turned out just how I wanted, perfectly chippy and awesome!
I’ve been collecting a bunch of cute, vintage, hardback books to bring down to the Vintage Market, including a some of these Readers Digest Condensed Books. I think they look so nice on a bookshelf! Aren’t the covers just fab too?
And (in my best Christ Traeger voice) this one is, literally, for the books. ;)
