I wanted to show you one of the 'treasures' that I found at the flea market this weekend. I am doing some changes in the library and was looking for a small table to replace the big round table that we had in front of the sofa. I was thrilled when I saw this little number. I couldn't wait to bring it home and work on it. Now stay with me, I know it looks horrible.
But I saw potential. And I was right:) Someone had put this fabulous contact paper on it. lol I'm sure it was spiffy in its day;) But it needed to be cleaned up a bit.
First I took off all of the contact paper, cleaned it again and again and then sanded it for a more distressed look.
Look at this great drawer. I love that it is so big. And I also love the knob. The more I sanded the more I could see the different shades of green and blue coming through. Looooove it. (It doesn't take much to make me happy).
It is the perfect size and height for the space. And you know how much I love this color:)
But LOOK at what I uncovered! When I sanded the side, the word SCIENCE came through!!! It must have been a child's desk. I was so excited as I sanded and found this happy surprise. Isn't it great ?
The color matches the colors in the pillows that I have on the sofa. I just love it. I am probably the only one who would have bought the table/desk but I am glad I did.
What treasures have you found lately?
I am going to join Furniture Friday over at Miss Mustard Seed on Friday. I have something else to show you then. You won't want to miss it. I can hardly wait to show you!!!!
`Till next time............
