Alright, so the amount of rain we have gotten up here in the northeast is bordering on ridiculous right about now. It's to the point where the nice sunny days are a rarity instead of the other way around! Being cooped up in June and continually having to drag all my painting stuff inside is getting a little old.
Anyway, sometimes it is so tough to sell pieces of furniture that I've refurbished because I've fallen in love. And sometimes, I totally give in and keep the piece, but other times I know they just need to go because I truly have no room for it.
I loved this little drop leaf dining table that my husband picked up for me.
First of all, I just in general have a thing for drop leaf tables because they are so versatile. The smaller size allows for use as entry or side tables.
Secondly, this table also had a cute little drawer and really interesting cut outs on the corners of the drop leaf sections.
I knew that I wanted to keep this table super classic so I kept my makeover of it to a minimum. I painted the top black and lightly distressed. The base was left in it's natural very lightly stained wood and I waxed the entire thing for extra protection. I also kept the original hardware because I loved it!
Here's a quick shot of it set up as a dining table (albeit in my living room), but I did want to show it all opened when I listed it for sale.
Thank goodness this one sold quickly because, honestly, I was getting a little bit too attached to it.
Lastly, here's a little preview of what I've been (very slowly) working on this week!!!!!
Have a great day!
