The Little Table That Could

If you're a follower of Little Mudpies on Facebook you probably seen this guy {girl?} posted the other day.

He was free. I love free.

Our neighbors are moving. I have been stalking watching their curbside, for the last few weeks. Well last Sunday this little table was sitting out there. We were on our way to my in laws for breakfast, and Ryan refused to stop and let me grab it {I know right, what was he thinking?!} He promised that if it was still there when we came home - I could have it.

Apparently it was meant to be. There he was in all his unkempt glory. I had big plans for The Little Table That Could.

Ryan has been on vacation. Unfortunately we're not laying on the beach sipping fruity drinks with an umbrella {there were fruity drinks just not on a beach}.  We decided to spend his week off getting our house together.

My projects were painting. And decorating. And redecorating. {more to come} So I headed to Lowe's with my little partner in crime, Oliver and picked up some of my favorite Valspar paint in Dove White.

The Little Table That Could wasn't in bad shape, but he needed some help. So I filled the holes and sanded it down. Primed it and gave it a few coats of paint. After it was dry I sanded down a few of the edges to give it a worn 'shabby chic' look.

And now it's a beautiful Swan.

Oh how I love those little glass knobs. 

Happy Monday!
