The village where we have out home has a once yearly annual yard sale, I had never heard of anything like it, and going to get a coffee, I was in shock that every single person had a stall at their yard, it was fantastic.
I turned the car around to go home and grab my wallet :) There isn't much details on it, but this is where they listed it.
We didn't end up getting much, a beautiful chair from The Van Loon House which is one of the oldest houses in NYS. The people living there were so nice, they even gave me a tour of the house, it made me even more envious of them.
Anyway, we did end up getting this little side table, I'm not sure what we're going to use it for, probably the bathroom, as everything in there is the same shade of white.
It was painted a yellow shade of white, either that or it was as old as the house, and it's little legs were used as a chewy for their pet dog, it was $7, so if we really couldn't do anything with it, it wasn't going to be a great loss.
I had some paint stripper left over from other projects, so that was easy, just be careful, wear gloves and take your time, this stuff will help relieve you of some much needed skin in a matter of seconds.
When done, it just needs to be sanded down with a fine sandpaper. Then paint! It's that simple, we had some Annie Sloan white chalk paint in the house, for such a small tin, I've painted multiple things with it, it's never ending!
Changing out the handle made such a difference, because the bathroom is very old world, a porcelain handle from Lowes really brough it together.
Then a stencil from Etsy, I used a sample pot of granite grey that is going into the bedrooms, there really wasn't much point in buying paint for something so small.
I didn't actually allow the paint on the stencil to dry completley, as i didn't want it to be perfect. So when it was about 90%, i took the stencil off, and ran over the top with grade thre steel wool, and it worked out really pretty, some of the words are visable, others you have to stare to make it out. Wonderful, out little seven dollar table looks straight of a magazine.
In the end, a little wax and it's ready to go!
