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.
