I checked one major "want" item off my long long list. I have been wanting to replace this Ikea table in my living room for a long long time. Here is the before (sorry for the bad cell phone pics):
The surface is a bit too small, it's sort of lop-sided and I was just plain bored with it. Wanna see the new one from the flea market??
I loove that it has a little shelf for the magazines. Not a super fan of the bottom triangular shelf, but hey - it's close enough to my dream table to work. The best part you ask??! It was already painted cream and distressed. I'll take it! I have not been in the furniture painting mood lately so this is a major plus! Here's a side by side comparison for you...
In other news, this evening I am attending a pre-holiday soiree for some friends of mine that have a stationary business. They are debuting all of their new holiday cards, stationary, and wedding invitations and decided to throw a par-tay. AND - they invited little ol' me to do a diy craft with their fabulous guests. We will be making pom pom mistletoe and pom pom snowballs :) FUN! I am pre-making all the tags so all they have to do is make a pom pom (while sipping cocktails) and I'll take care of the rest :)
It should be a FUN night :)
I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week! Talk soon!
