Hall Table Makeover

We purchased this hall table used shortly after we arrived to the country. I loved the bones of it but it needed a little love.  So I had the drawer fronts replaced and bought a can of green paint.  Then I got a little worried that I was crazy. 



Until I saw this coffee table that Kimba built.  Then I felt not at all crazy and just a little happy! :) 



So somewhere in the ballpark of two months later, I actually got this lovely lady through rehab!



I learned a lot through my first refinishing project!  I'm definitely looking forward to painting something again soon.  (Honey, if you are reading this...just take a deep breath!)  



I'd love to hear what you think!  And may I just apologize ahead of time for the dizzying flooring in our rental!

I like the table, but oooh, the floor! No Way. I'd never be able to walk straight with that below my feet!

My husband wanted to put laminate on at a diagonal once. Thought it would be "different". Uh uh! I like different, but when yuo already struggle with slight brain damage to your balance center - no way!!!

I got a great chair sitting on my front porch needed work. I "rescued" it because it looked so beautiful (well, beautiful potential). Want to come over and help?

It turned out great! It looks like her table's cousin found a good home. HA!

Yes, it looks like its cousin for sure. I love your choice of green paint. It adds so much character and really draws out the detail of the piece. Great job and thanks for sharing.

It looks great! Would never know it's your first time! Isn't it amazing how once you've painted something, you just want to paint something else?

I really love this!! I am toying with the idea of painting the top of my coffee table a burgundy red this weekend! The legs are black! You have given me courage!

I am following!!

That green is gorgeous. Good for you for taking the plunge into rehabbing furniture! It gets easier each time, though not necessarily less frustrating at times :O)
