A new coffee table and teeth

I bought this coffee table along with a matching dining room suite (pics of that to come tomorrow) this past week. They are definitely very "rustic" in feel but I really do like their chunky legs, and the really cool wood work on the top.



To give this one a bit more of a beachy-feel I first primed and painted it white, then applied the grey-ish blue paint and distressed back down to show the white coming through. This is similar in color to a piece Rebecca and I worked on yesterday which I am sure she will be sharing asap on her blog.

Another thing I LOVED was that this table had a drawer! I switched the knob to a hanging pull.

Close up of the distressing:


On a completely different front, Wren has sprouted her second tooth! She is pretty proud to now have a complete set and definitely lets us all know it. Exhibit A:

Exhibit B:


And just because:

Have a great Friday!

Great choice of a coffee table, more drawers to hide away more junk = A good thing!!

Hi Holly! Your blog has been so inspirational. I'm always blown away by what you can do with an ugly piece of "before" furniture. Just a quick question....in general,where do you find all of your cool door pulls and knobs?

Keep up the good work!
