Like Vinegar

OK.....so I'm gonna say something that rarely comes out of my mouth.....my husband was right :-) And to quote Tim McGraw and Sandra Bullock from the movie The Blind Side (one of our favorite movies of all time) Tim: "How did that taste coming out of your mouth?" Sandra: "Like vinegar."

This table has been sooooooo close to completion for months and I just kept working around it...not loving it, not knowing what to do to love it and therefore letting it sit, and sit, and sit. As you can see it's big and it took up a lot of space in my little workshop. You'd think that would have spurred me on...but no. My hubby kept saying "It looks great the way it is." Just wax it up and be done...this is where "he's right" comes in...ugh


I listened to him and now I LOVE it. It didn't need anything else but the creativity of those drawing on the chalkboard top! How fun!


As I mentioned earlier, this table is big. It's 3 ft by 3 ft. I figured there could be several people (or kiddos) at a time drawing on the table. And thinking like a mom; perhaps splitting up the drawing areas would be a good idea.

Have you noticed I'm really into drawing on furniture? I'm glad my kids are old enough to know when you CAN draw on a table and when you CANNOT. Otherwise it could get real ugly. My kids are awesome artists so I'm often inspired by them.


I love the chunky bulbous shape of these legs. They're just plain pretty :-) I added a little distressing.....and yummmmy!!!


The color of this table is ASCP Arles; such a pretty sunny yellow. As much as it might hurt, I will post this on my Items for Sale page. It needs a good home :-)

Have a great weekend everyone!
