Hi Sunshines, meet Marsha! (John is standing beside her, he is finished, more pictures of that handsome dude later!) :) PS Please pardon my messy work areas in the pictures! :)
I have been busy today, finishing up some loose ends so to speak, this little ugly duckling being one of them, I finally have all of my before and after pictures together!
I found "Marsha" in a thrift (naturally :) ! She just spoke to me, scratches, dry skin, spider webs and all, especially her shape!
She was a dreary brown, very dry piece of real wood, SCORE! And I just fell in love with her and her sleek lines. I've never seen an end table quite like this one, slightly triangle and all, but she is very interesting and I think really really old, as she has brass looking type metal caster roller feet! Roll Marsha, roll! LOL She also has a really long drawer and the old drawer pull is original too!
She is a very sturdy piece for being so old, and really heavy as well, with tons of room on top and bottom shelf. I decoupaged the inside of the drawer (forgot to take pics !) with muted type "travel" scrap booking papers with the same beige color tones.
Anyway, I am so happy how she turned out, she is a solid creamy taupe yellow beige color with some distressing here and there and a new shiny waxed coat!
I know she feels better and so do I! :) Needless to say she was a labour of love! Painting, sanding, more painting, sanding, but now she has that softer wood feel, very smooth texture and I love how the wax feels and also protects her new coat! :) No more rough edges or scratches for her!
I hope you have a wonderful healthy, happy and loving week planned with tons of fun in there too Sunshines! Oh and a very Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! Hugs Kat =^.^=
