Today I want to share a small project I have been working on for the past few weeks.
Our living room is kind of an open concept, but there is really not a whole lot of light. There is only one window in the living room area and the door to the back yard is right next to that. The only other window is in the dining room adjacent to the living room, which gives a little bit of light too.
The window goes pretty far down so the space is really a bit awkward. I have been wondering what in the world we should put there and I finally decided on this little side table and a chair that I already had.
My daughter initially used this old table as a bed side table in her bedroom in its original brown, sad and drap state. I already had some white chalk paint which I bought but never used, so I decided to paint it white. I distressed it just a little bit and the antiqued it with a coat of brown antique wax. I am still not quite sure about the result, but my family really likes it. I am not sure of the brownish tint. But for now I am going to live with it.
I wish I had taken a before picture as well, but I guess the excitement of getting started got the better of me. The plan is to redo a chair that we have in the same way to go with the table by the window to create a little extra seating as well.
The best part about this project is that I had all of the items that I used. I did not have to go out and spend money, but was able to re-create something we already had. How fun.
Till next time.
