A Table Rescue

Don't you think it's amazing how quickly this summer is flying by?
I can't believe it's the last week of July already!

Last year, after my new living room furniture was delivered, 
I found I needed a little side table...one that would fit between the couch 
and the radiator.  I knew this would not be an easy find
because the space between is so narrow.

One day, I dragged my poor husband out into the middle of nowhere for
an estate sale.  And there, I found it!  The perfect table!


I know you're probably thinking, 
"This was the perfect table?"

I know, I know, my husband was skeptical as well.
He was also not happy that I paid $20.00.
He thought it too much for something so beat up.

I brought it home, got right to work using
 a little "miracle elixir" which I know
you all know about.  :)
Annie Sloan's Old White chalk paint.



See now?  She's looking pretty good, huh?


I stenciled the top for a little added something.


Exactly what I was looking for!
She really was the perfect table!

Don't you just love it when you rescue something
and transform it from ugly duckling
to beautiful swan?

Have a wonderful day, friends!

Summer Mantel 2015 with Beach/Coastal Flair

Hello, hello!
Is there anyone out here?
(I sound like a Pink Floyd song!)

My goodness, I've been lost to blogland for way too long!
But, I'm back and I'm glad of that.

I hope that it has been a great Summer for everyone, so far.

Let's take a look around today...the Mantel & Living Room are set for Summer.
I went a little beachy/coastal in my decor.



I found this postage stamp sign @ Home Goods and fell in love with it!
The rest of the room was decorated around that sign.  


I had to spread the "blue" love around by making some pillows
and adding blue here & there.


The coffee table got a little nautical treatment,


as did the shelves of the entertainment center.



I love this light & airy feel for Summer!


Have an excellent day and stay cool!
