The Dining Table of My Dreams....another chalk paint makeover

i go in for surgery (this time the left thumb joint replacement) tomorrow at 6am, so I thought I would get a new post out to you before I am gimped up a bit.

  Too small but nice little Ikea table.

 The larger table I have been looking for...found at St. Vincent's.

Nice side detail too. Solid wood table. Heavy!!

First coat of white chalk paint. I love this stuff!

Design ideas....

 I used some washi tape to temporarily define the area I wanted the detail in.

Mirrored some detail on the side. Love the echoing two toned look.

I've got a few other furniture overhauls coming up.....

Be Creative. It's Good for the Soul!

And leave a COMMENT while you are at it. ; )
Blessings, Joanie


  1. Gorgeous finish! Makes for a most inviting corner for tea or diner and chat!! Wishing you speedy recovery from your surgery ; meanwhile "two thumbs up" (pardon the pun) on your DIY decor!

    1. 2 thumbs up! Love it. 😊

      Recovering well....much better this time. Phew.

  2. Your ability to see the potential in what may have been a discard and to give it a new life is a gift. Lovely table makeover! Hope all goes well with surgery and your recovery. Get well, stay well, be well!
