Side Table and Magazine Rack Makeovers…

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day!

I had a wonderful brunch with my family.

After brunch, my son and his family went off to the State Park for the afternoon…

… was a beautiful day.

As for me?….my hubby drove me to Ikea (a 2 1/2 hour drive)…

… buy much needed items to complete projects.

And speaking of projects…

I was working all day yesterday painting items that have been living in the attic.


I painted this side table that I have had for many, many years.


I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Old Ochre…the side table is solid pine with a dark walnut stain.


I did a little distressing…


And a little styling…

…..and it’s off to my booth!


I cannot tell you how many times this magazine rack almost went out in the yard sale…

…..but I held back.


I also painted this solid pine piece with ASCP Old Ochre..



I really like it here…but I have to be good and let it go…

… now I am off take these items to my booth and buy more paint!!!

It is so beautiful here today so I am looking forward to my drive to the quaint city of Mebane.

Hope your day is as beautiful!!
