This From That: Tables and Paint


A well-placed mirror makes a room look bigger.

 A thrifted mirror in good condition is even better.


A thrifted pedestal table can be cut down to make a wonderful coffee table.

If Grandpa doesn’t live at your house, I don’t know what to tell you.


New wheels, bronzed with a distressed look can add so much

and make a table easy to move.


Behr Satin Paint with Primer is my favorite.

This table is the same color as the mantel.



Ahhhh. Finished.

And, as an afterthought . . .



This table is also a thrifted “find”.

Dark Forest Green using Behr Satin Paint with Primer.

Three coats with paint left over.





” Every house where love abides 

and friendship is a guest,

is surely home,

and home, sweet home;

for there the heart can rest.”

-Henry Van Dyke-
