I was given a table with a formica top. The legs can be used for numerous projects, but not so much the table. In my determination to not have to pitch it, I came up with a way to put it to use.
Unfortunately, there are not a lot of photos of this one. I am working on a big project right now (I'm so excited to reveal it hopefully later in the week). Between steps on the large project, this one was put together.
I have been wanting something to hang above my television for a while. It needed to be quite long and have a shabby look to it. In all honesty I wanted some architectural salvage, but wasn't finding anything, at least not in the budget.
Do you ever find a piece that is so nice, except for that one spot? This chair was like that, but aren't we all? There are a few things we can do to hide imperfections- wood filler, painting, covering with fabric...the latter is what I chose to do to this seat.
If you have seen how Trios Petites Filles transformed a foot board into a settee then you know how amazing that was! I was so inspired I set out to find a foot board so I, too could make something similar. Hers is by far more glamorous, but I love how mine turned out as well.
