Turning the Tables...

I found this octagon shaped table at a secondhand store recently. At first I couldn't tell if I loved it or not. I went back to the thrift store 3 times to look at it and ponder its potential.









It had been marked down to $30.00. I decided I would take it home and redo it.


















A few days later I bought the new issue of Better Homes & Gardens 100 Ideas Flea Market Style Magazine. And there, on the front cover was a table very similar to mine.

That was all the validation I needed - I knew I had a keeper!....



I painted it an Heirloom White and antiqued it.



It is now our new dining room table. It looks fresh and changes the rooms entire feel. I had the same farmhouse table in there (that I still love) for years and years but I was ready for a change.




Our 1st gourmet dinner at our new table!



Have a Great Day!
