LOTUS side table makeover



This post uses affiliate links to help you find the products I trust and love

Here is another cute little side table that I got to use my Krink Permanent Paint pen on.
Make sure you enter the Giveaway for those HERE.

See this U.G.L.Y. table. My sister spotted this for me
at those garage sales I told you about a couple weeks ago...
But SHHHHHHH don't say anything..I still owe her the
whole $2 that it cost. I was out of money by the time we got to this house. :)

As you can see it was in pretty ruff shape. This was a LOVED table,
Like "I wish my brother George was here" Loved...:(
The top had essential oils and candle wax on it, so I had to sand that part
pretty good to make sure I got any lumps off.

Then it was Ce Ce Caldwells Traverse City Red to the rescue. (I am from Michigan so I loved it right away, just for the name)

When I waxed it I was so Happy how the purple came through with the red..It was a perfect combination.

And here is where the fun got Funner..(I know its not a word...I don't care)
I found a great little Lotus sketch in my binder that I keep and knew it was the perfect little OOMPH
for the table.

So I got out my ever so lovely KRINK pen and drew it on.

I really love how it just added that extra little something to the simple little table.
Don't forget too, only 6 more days for the giveaway..
Krink $150 worth of paint pens giveaway.
I hope you all have a BEAUTIFUL day.

Karin, your table turned out so stinkin' cute!! I think it was just waiting for the Traverse City Cherry!! I like the way you say, "so I just drew it on" For most of us, it doesn't just flow out of our fingertips - lol. You're so talented ~ Great job!! Shelly Andrade
