My 20 hour coffee table redo...


Well...maybe it wasn't exactly 20 hours, but it sure wasn't ONE!!

I love the blog Dear Lillie....I hate to admit that I kind've stalk her.....not really, but
I do look forward to that RSS feed email telling me that she has posted something new!

When I saw her coffee table redo, it provided me with the inspiration to finally
make over my ugly coffee table!




 I wouldn't say that I am finished....I need to do some more distressing and
I'd like to cut a board to go under the table so that I can add cool looking
baskets to hide more JUNK!!!



But, for now, it's good enough!

And here's a fun little before....



and after...



Have you ever underestimated the time spent on a project??

Hmmm....Have I ever underestimated the time a project would take?....Cha! Only every single time. :D Your table looks great. I always say that anyone who thinks stripping furniture is easy are the ones who have never done it! Internet High Five to you.

Yes, you may have underestimated the time it would take, but you can look at the table and smile because it was done out of the talent given you by God. It is beautiful. You did a great job.

Nice makeover! Love the dark top with the light colored bottom on the table. I found you from Tatertots and Jello. I'm a homeschool mom as well and a new follower.

Loving the dark top. It looks excellent like that! I have a farm table to re vamp once the weather changes and warms up a bit.
LOL on the "shelf so you can have a basket to hide more junk" ;)
