She's got legs ....


While the dust settles and the paint dries in the kitchen {awesome post coming soon} we will be back in the {cottage}. Now because this space is intended to be a place of work I needed a "workspace" aka large table. I just so happened to be in luck because Daddy was going to pitch this lil sweetie.

I know she is covered in dust and cobb webs but it makes it all the more fun!

After giving her a good cleaning I deglossed her. If you have never heard of this stuff you must try it. I use it about once a week...no kidding!

Look at those legs now! The bottom of the table is painted the same color as the walls. I did this because the table was so large it helped minimize the beast. Now the colors just flow from table to wall and pleases the eye!

You may be wondering what happened to the floor. It's still there I had just taken this picture before the painted part.

I left the top of the table as is because I liked the way it went with the floor.


I did pour the polish to the top and it just soaked it up. Guess I would have to if I had been in the garage for years!

So here is where all of my lovies will be born. You can also see how painting the bottom of the beast the same color as the walls helped out. Now instead of the walls and table fighting for the focal point.....they just hug~
**** any guesses on what's cooking in my kitchen...other than hotdogs...? *****

  5. The work cottage is coming together nicely. I am looking forward to seeing what is going on in the kitchen. My husband would croak if I had painted the cabinets twice in one year, but he'd get over it as long as he didn't have to do the painting. Looking forward to seeing what you have been up to. Jackie
