I'm Baaaaaack!

Hey everyone!  Long time no see!

We just got back from visiting my parents in Connecticut and I have to quickly share my mom's latest redo with you.  She found these tables at Goodwill for $4.99 each...

They are Ethan Allen but the tops were seriously beat up so she took her hand sander to them and found a gorgeous wood grain underneath...

The left is after sanding and the right after applying a walnut stain and spray painting the bases white.

I just love the pattern on the wood.  Too pretty to paint!

Alright, I'm off to do a massive amount of laundry and try to get back into the swing of things!  I haven't really parented in over 10 days as my kids played with their cousins and ignored me most of the trip as I sat around sipping on Skinny Girls and the Vino by the Long Island Sound.  Tough life ;)  Reality has just smacked me in the face as my children are fighting like cats and dogs and its a bazillion degrees here in Richmond!  


  1. Those tables are gorgeous! Thankfully it's supposed to cool down next week :)

  2. Welcome Home!!! Glad you had a good time!

  3. I think I m going to take the hand sander and give the white a more worn, vintage look - like Meg's nitestand. They just look a little to clean right now.

  4. Unbelievable find and an even more unbelievable make-over. Truly.

  5. Fantastic makeover, mom! Ahh, the sounds of summer ;)
