About Me

My photo
God does have a sense of humor, after years of infertility, we adopted 2 beautiful babies, I later had the "surprise baby"! In the very spare time I have, I love to decorate, paint, and make all kinds of things. I do repurpose old furniture and custom paint furniture for clients. I work with all types of vintage items. I love to make our house a home. I like to see how others do it and share what I do also. Contact me at if you are interested in any products I have posted or if you are local to Atlanta and want a furniture face lift! Love your old junk again!

More Farm House

Here is another table for a client. It is going in her kitchen. We worked on this, the last, very hectic week of school. I love this finish. I used a walnut stain on the top, then chateau grey chalk paint worked into the stain, then the same color on the apron and legs. Distressed to show off the chippyness! The legs are antiques, found at the antique market.  The apron is pallet wood and the top is pine planks. New and old mixed, but with great character. Enjoy!

You gave SO much character to the top! I think it's awesome if you can combine new and old to make a brand new "something" that will be loved. In this case it's an awesome looking table that I would love to have in my kitchen too ;)

Came over from Nifty Thrifty to see your table. The legs have so much character and the distressed finish is wonderful.
