It's a Wash, and it's Inspiring!

Hi Bloggerettes!  I want to thank all of you for your helpful ideas and suggestions on what to do with this table.  You are such a sweet bunch.  Don't know what I'd do without you.
About half of you said to stain it and the other half said to paint it.
And some of you said to dry brush it!

This look inspires me to add more vintage pieces to the tabletop.  I can't wait to set it up in my booth.

It's going to my booth, so we shall see.  If no one likes it I can always paint it!

I made some more burlap pillows. Yea, I know, you are tired of looking at them.

It's time to go blog hoping and I am going to try to visit as many of you as I can.  It might take me awhile, but I'll eventually get there.
So leave the light on!

I'm joining Debra's Vintage Inspiration Fridays, so be sure and check out all the wonderful posts over there.

I like the new look, can't imagine not selling!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

I love the finish you did on that table. I would probably buy it if I needed one and lived close by.

Sharing Shadymont said...

So nice. It will sell fast. I love your blog. Your living room is so exquisite. Love it!!!

I love your table? it looks so shabby and an old table should look. I would buy it in a heart-beat (that is if I had some cash teeheee). I don't think you'll have any trouble selling it to a good home.

The table is beautiful, it won't be in your booth long:@)

Sissie, I am one of those that said leave it natural. Now that I see it finished I have to admit I was wrong! It's wonderful and you should have no problem selling it.

The Polka Dot Closet said...

I do the same thing, sometimes I will leave a table as I found it and then take it back and paint it white. I love your burlap pillows, I have not done any yet, how are they selling in your booth? I do well with pillows especially if I use a Rachel Ashwell fabric.


Crystal Rose Cottage said...

Looks great Sissie! I knew you would do just the right thing! Good luck with it in your shop!~Hugs, Patti

Sares said...

I think it turned out beautifully. I am sure it will sell in a heartbeat! You cracked me up with your previous post. Sometimes you have to live with a change before you realize it's just not happening for you!

Allison said...

Your table looks beautiful! That will fly out of your booth. Your pillows are always fun and fabulous to look at. Very always come up with something different with the burlap. I enjoy seeing your creations!

Henna @ AboutCabinets Blog said...

its a good looking and sturdy table that would certainly look very good if restored to its original glory, just make sure that its done the right way and it will through years, i like the little drawer a lot and would prefer using it in a foyar or hall with a mirror on top!!

Annie's Online Furniture said...

a very good piece of furniture, one thats lasts a long time, paint it a good color and decorate it the right way and it will charm your guests!!

Nancy's Notes said...

Sissy, what a wonderful transformation! It's just awesome, I love it! Your pillows are always a show stopper, you are so talented and clever.

Enjoy your day~

Olivia said...

Sissie, I love the table like this, it looks perfect! As for your pillows they are a sweet bit of eye candy I will be happy to sample any day!

Sherrie said...

Perfect choice. I love it. Just the right amount of paint and distressing. May I ask, how do you come up with a price? Do your tables for example always a set price range? Thank for sharing.

Sherry said...

It is perfect. Great choice.
I have given you a blog award. Please forgive me if you don't participate in these.

Oh I really like the dry brush look.

How did you do that? just take a dry brush and put a little paint on it? I want to try that.

June said...

I love how the table turned out Sissie. I don't think you will have to worry about it not selling. It's a great piece!
When I read your previous post about how you had to change your livingroom back to the whites. I thought to myself, 'I do believe that girl and I were separated at birth'! But I still love those floral chairs and would so find a place for them here!!!! Um...I'd still keep your doors locked!!!

awal.ny said...

The tables new look is great and of course I love the cute pillows you make.

Something Nice and Pretty said...

Love the table it turned out so nice and I'm sure it will sell, if not you have one fine piece of furniture to put in your home!
I never, ever get tired of seeing your pillows!

Tammy at Tattered and Timeless said...

Sissie, I love how the table turned out and those pillows- well can I say - I want them.
I really need to try and visit your shop next time I am at the beach. And if you are ever near Lumberton- exit 20 off of I95 be sure to visit my booth.
thanks for the kind comments - and off to read more.
