A New (to me) Coffee Table and a Redo

Hello Friends!!

I apologize for missing in action lately. I've had lots of projects but lots of volunteering at the school, helping with homework, etc. You know how it goes.

This little beauty is something I found at a sale for five bucks...but she was so rough. I think she'd been sitting outside for months. But when I stripped the top...gorgeousness came through. It's the perfect size for our family room.






 The only problem is that now I want to redo the whole room....red couch and all. Hmmmm.

This latest little dresser/large nightstand came in the usual maple finish but it was orangy and dated. 


I sanded down the top and used dark wax on it. Then to tone down the base/body, I used ebony stain and it worked really well!! 









I think this looks more modern and fun! Will be for sale at Carver Junk Company next Wednesday-Saturday!!

Both makeovers are gorgeous! I also love the horse artwork you have.
