thrifty momma thursday

Thursday, June 16, 2011

I am SO stoked on this beautifully carved end table I found! I am going to refinish it and give it a whole new look this weekend..along with a million other things I have to do...like plan a carnival themed birthday party for Max, which is just a few weeks away! I really need to get on that.

Side note: That yellow spray paint mark on the right is from me..WOOPSIE...Ian was not too stoked that I accidentally forgot to put down cardboard when spray painting some frames.

I am loving all the detailed carvings.

Thrifting tip:
Have vision. Look at the bones of the furniture. Is is sturdy? Is it real wood? Do you like the overall shape? Everything else like paint, wood color and knobs can be easily changed.

so beautiful! how are you going to refinish it without compromising the carvings? do you sand it down & paint? i'm so curious to see what you come up with, as i am not creative like this at all!

Hi Lindsay

That looks so expensive. I might see you on "American Antique Roadshow" then? Can't wait to see the finished item. Wish I lived nearby. I'd give you a hand with your party planning. I love planning kid's birthday parties. Have a great weekend!

What a great find! I totally agree with you about having a vision - luckily for me, my Dad can fix anything, so he'll make my vision come to life! Can't wait to see what you do with this piece :)

And sure, I can style you anytime! Haha! ;)
