A Painted Table

I found this table at a yard sale. She was priced at $30.  I thought that was a little high because I am very cheap frugal, so I asked if they would go down on the price. The woman then told me that this piece had been in her boutique (which I loved, but it has gone out of business with the downturn in the economy) and it was priced at $300.  Well.  No wonder it didn't sell!  Anyhow, that did make $30 seem like a deal, but I still asked for less and ended up paying $10 for the table!  Love it!

What I didn't love was the color.  While it is very patriotic, I wanted it to blend in with the back patio a bit more.  My mother-in-law had several cans of "Nutmeg" spray paint from Rustoleum left over from one of her projects, so I decided to spray the table.


Much better!  And does anyone remember that I have all these chairs just waiting for a table?  I could not resist pulling them outside and setting them up for our backyard barbeque last Saturday!  Aren't they lovely?


It was fun, for me, to see everyone sitting around the table in the old chairs that have been waiting to be enjoyed.  Sadly, one of the chairs broke.  Bahahahahaha!  It really wasn't sad, but hilarious!  Guess I need to be a little more cautious in my chair selection!  

What have you transformed recently?  I am linking up to At Home With K's Tuesday Under $10 party to see what others are doing!  Check it out!

Enjoy the Son!

Holly, this looks amazing all put together! you have an really great eye for what is going to work - even before you know what you are going to actually do with it. This is just so cool.
