Fave Furniture Fridays #4

Hello everyone.. and hello FRIDAY! so glad it's almost the weekend. My husband comes home from work and we get to see him for more than 2 hours at a time at night.
 (the resident's life...ugh.)
Here are a few projects that I've been working on this week, along with painting my friend's dining room chairs, making a Harriet Tubman costume and preparing for a birthday party. :)

This is a dumpster dive treasure that I brought home on top of my car at night. The table is super heavy and sturdy.. i love the old pieces that don't have an inch of laminate on them. I wanted to do something different besides just painting it white, so if you look closely on top, you can see a parquet pattern in the wood.
I sanded (and sanded and sanded and sanded) and finally got all of the stain off on the top left and right. my plan is to put a coat of polyurethane over just those sections, tape them off and paint the rest of the coffee table a solid color. Tune in next week to see it finished! Sorry about the horrible picture, but at least you can see where the sanding took place. :)
The picture below is a bed that I found (and the before of the chair from last week's post). It's beautiful just like it is, but (of course) I decided to spruce it up a bit.
 Ta da! After. It's in the dining room, still. I need more space!!

 See anything great this week? We'd love to hear about it! Any suggestions on the coffee table makeover? Have a great week and a Hoppy Easter!


  1. love the bed makeover so pretty and bold, the flower is beautiful!

  2. Amazing Sarah!!!! Love the bed frame and can't wait to see the table!

  3. It's so beautiful and flower design is looking so great on white. I got some white painted furniture and I think, above design can be great match and make them more beautiful.


Thank you for your comments, we love to hear from you!
