These few pictures show you how bright the paint was. I wanted to "shabby" it up a bit...
I used a sanding block to sand off some of the paint to lighten it and let some of the dark stain come through.
I found this drawer pull at Hobby Lobby for $4.99 and it was 50% off! I even used rusty screws so that they would match. I love that you can buy knobs that already look old!
Here are several pictures of the finished product! It is my new entryway table, by the font door.
I was in Ohio when the craft group I belong to made these "favorite things" blocks, but they saved me a kit and I made it yesterday. It turned out pretty cute!
I LOVE this rustic wire bird basket that I got from a friend for my birthday! It's from Home Goods, and it even came with a matching larger basket! A great spot for outgoing mail so I don't forget it! The other two ceramic items are from Home Goods, they were in the bathroom section, but I'm using them as a phone/keys tray and pen/scissors holder! I love the way it turned out! Total cost: $6 Table, $2.50 Knob= $8.50 for a new table!!
