TABLETOP TUESDAY ......Trash to Treasure

Wow it's been a while since Ive been cranking out makeover posts, but Ive been a busy bee.    Besides taking care of my family of 7, and 2 visiting young family members.  I found some time to do some makeovers around my house and outdoors.

This was a curbside find...it was beaten up and had no seat at all!

I have that heart to see past the ugly to it's true potential.  So out came some poster board, contact paper and some Graphite AS Chalk Paint.

Something doesn't always need to be was the original intention was......I thought okay no seat so let's make it a table!

Here it is on my back deck holding some fresh cut flowers from my garden.

I then thought it might go here in the hallway under our Family Photo Wall.

I think this will be the final resting place..the graphite and the grey wall go nicely.  Im sure the Ball jar w/ flowers will be replaced with clothing, towels and baby toys.    But only temporarily I clean up every night so I can go to sleep knowing the house it in order.   Crazy I know because I have to do it over again every night! lol

  1. Great Job MJ!!! Very interesting back on the chair too....looks like a bent cane chair, but I've never seen one with three cross bars! Very Cool! Did you use wax over the paint or is it just the chalk paint? Always fun to see repurposing projects! Don't know how you get it all done! :)

  2. yup. Love it. Knew I would! I like your layout on the family pic wall!!!

  3. It looks fabulous. I am amazed at your ability to see the possibility in something that looks kind of tacky and then turn it into something wonderful. It looks great under the photo collage. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty


God don't like ugly! Neither do I...so if you dont have something nice to say.....keep it to yourself!
