Drop Leaf Drama


This wretched drop leaf table showed up in my driveway one day. It was dirty. It was damaged. It was outright ugly.


Even the bottom of it looked gnarly. But, I've had a lot of success with drop leafs. Since I opened last July, I've sold at least six drop leafs, so I figured I'd give this one a shot.


I was hoping to sand through the clumpy varnish and stain so that I could re stain the top...but no go. The wood was just too damaged and discolored. I was going to have to paint the whole thing.


I let both my girls help with this one. After all, it couldn't get much worse. We painted this table in its entirety with a light grey color...a homemade chalk paint blend.


I added a pretty heavy distressing.





Even with all of the distressing, the table is quite smooth on top. And, when the leaves are down, it is quite slim. It would work well in a small kitchen or entry way, or even as a console table.

This week I am trying to get back into the swing of things after a restful Thanksgiving vacation! I have a few custom projects to wrap up and some things at home to take care of. Wait until I tell you about my Christmas decorating turned family room renovation. Things kind of snowball when I have a vision.

And, I'm really excited about some new business opportunities that have dropped my way in the last week! I can't share yet, but they will involve some new projects that I get to write about and give my expert opinion!

In the meantime, it's back to work on this cute little side table that I am doing custom for a lovely lady from my church, which will be finished by the end of today!
