A Couple of End Tables

This past week has been an interesting one for me. Last Sunday I got in the car with me daughter to go to church, and my husband was running late and was going to take the truck later. When I got in my car, I noticed the contents of the glove box were all over the car; someone had broken into my car. I went inside to tell my husband, and he asked about the truck. I realize I didn't even check, so I go back outside and the truck is gone. They stole our truck! We've waited a week and a half now hoping it would show up on the side of the road or a parking lot somewhere. I'm starting to realize the longer it's gone, the worse shape it'll be in, if they ever find it. It was an old truck and we have no theft insurance. Bummer. It looks like I won't be picking up or delivering any large pieces of furniture for a little while :(

On the positive side, my husband was off of school all week last week so I wasn't stuck at home with no car. I was able to paint these cute end tables for a great client of mine.

Here are the before pictures. I especially loved the legs of both of these small tables. I really fell in love with the wood table and I even enjoyed the color of the wood on this one. I was asked to paint one in duck egg blue and the other in graphite to go with some previous pieces I had painted for her. Here they are finished, with just a smidge of distressing.

They're nothing too spectacular but they are just enough to add a little well worn character to a room.

  4. I am sorry to hear about your truck Jenine. I suddenly realized that I should consider the next time a theft insurance agent is around to convince me. Anyway, great job on transformation those end tables. I liked the little worn character idea.
