A Finished Project


I am afraid I started too many projects at one time.   Not real smart, but I know that I will be glad once they get finished.

I did complete one makeover recently.


This table was purchased from an antique mall a couple of years ago,  but it isn’t old.


I fell in love with the shape of the piece more than the color.

The original blue was pretty but it just wasn’t feeling right in the den.

(I didn’t have the heart to make Ginger move to take this picture!)


I usually like a bit of gold on trim,  but this looked cheap to me.


The new cream finish looks good with the stools new cover.


No more cheap looking gold!


In fact,  I think the details show up better now.


I love egg and dart trim.


Another successful makeover!


I am super close to sharing the bed crown make over.  It was a tough job.

The backsplash hasn’t been started, but it is definitely getting updated before Thanksgiving.

  3. Hi Rhonda, Well you did improve the look with your changes, and I think Ginger agrees:)

  4. Love the new look, you did an amazing job, it looks gorgeous!!!! Ginger did look really comfortable. hugs~~~ Daphne

  5. Hi Rhonda,
    Your table looks so beautiful. It's amazing what the white and destressing did for it.

    Projects, that's my middle name!

    out just wonderful !!

    and the chair covered ~


  7. It came out so pretty Rhonda! I love the creamy white. You did a great job!I love the stool also.

  8. I love the size of the table too. You did a beautiful job. My sister and I have both taken on too many projects too. I keep telling her not to panic. Set a goal of Thanksgiving or Christmas to be finished. Look at the long term. I've decided my dogs can be in my blog pictures. Ginger looks so peacful.

  9. Hi Rhonda, The table is beautiful and what a difference the creamy paint made. I also love the stool under the table. I am up to my neck in projects right now. Hugs, Sherry

  10. What a beautiful table! Great job! I have so many projects started that I probably will stay busy for months! And the holidays will be here before we know it.

  11. Rhonda, that is a 100% improvement in my opinion! I LOVE the cream and I agree, I think it shows the details much more. Beautiful job.

  12. beautiful the table and ginger too! i have 2 goldens jack "the greatest american dog" and red. haha. diane vintage-tickled-pink

  13. Love the transformation, Rhonda! Like you, I have started several projects {although, smaller than furniture!} over the Summer, but never completed them. I did finally finish up a couple this past weekend. I had to ~ because I'm picking up things for the next projects!

  14. The table looks great and I think in a way even a bit more vintage! Christie

  15. This is beautiful!! The creamy white is just stunning! And I adore the stool! Sweet Ginger...

    I want to put a stain or a wash or a glaze or SOMETHING over my red island in my kitchen to just antique it a little and tone down the red! What should I use?? I just stand in Lowes and stare and am just clueless! I need your expertise...

  16. Oh have done it again! This is gorgeous! I love how you have it dressed too!


  17. Beautiful job! Love the new look.

  18. What a gorgeous table! You did a wonderful job with the new color. I reminds me of something from a French chateau (not that I've ever been in one ;)

  19. Rhonda, this is absolutely gorgeous, love the piece, and the new paint technique is just stunning!!

  20. Oh, everything looks so pretty!
    Love the stool!
