Show and Tell Friday

Hi everyone~ Today I am joining Cindy at My Romantic Home for her Show and Tell Friday.

I'm also joining Courtney for her Feathered Nest Friday ~

I have this little walnut side table which I got at Winners a couple of years ago and I have been living with the dark wood ever since I got her. I knew eventually she would probably get a coat of white paint. Well, she got her new look over the weekend.

Hubby sanded it down a bit and then I started painting her. Before she looked like this...

Then she looked like this...

Then this after three coats of paint....

Then this; a wee bit of distressing...

And finally like this! I like her much better this way. My little white tray has found the perfect spot to hold some tea and my newest Victoria Holiday Bliss magazine.

Thank you for stopping by the Rose Chintz Cottage and have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi
