Table Redo and Frame Gallery

I have been a bad blogger lately.  This does not mean I have not been busy but, I have not taken the time to show what I've been up to.  I have had a project list a mile long and have even taken photos.  So, today I am going to show you one project that I finished.

I have had this lovely, old table for years.  It sits in a little alcove just outside the master bath.  This is not a very light and bright area and the vignette was looking rather 1990's to me of late.  I was inspired by so much of what I see on other blogs that I decided to tackle this area.  (I do apologize for the quality of these first pictures as I had my camera on the wrong setting.)

Here is a close up of the wonderful legs and pediment under the table.

And, here is my little beauty painted 'Heirloom White' and lightly distressed.  I just love how the details pop so much better.

Next, I rummaged around the house/attic for some old frames.  I added a couple from Goodwill and painted the entire lot the same 'Heirloom White' to create an empty frame gallery.

Here is what it looks like on the wall.  I think that I will add more as I find them.

This is what the area looks like now with the frames up and the table redone.  I think it is so much brighter.  Its just a fresher look ... albeit a little bit 'still in progress'.  I also found the little wooden tray at Goodwill and it benefited from a coat of paint.  I tend to throw my watch and jewelry in there as I head into the bathroom to get ready for bed.

I was pretty happy with how this turned out and I think I may have spent a few bucks at Goodwill plus whatever the paint and primer cost.  I'm loving my little table more than I ever.

You've been busy! I love the new look of the table and the frames. The whole grouping is gorgeous. Great job, glad you're back in action.
