Welcome back my BEAUTIES!
I am so happy to be back with a fun new makeover!
I have to admit that this cold weather and gray days have left me uninspired. But luckily one of my favorite paint companies came out with some new colors and it got me motivated to get some projects done.
I had picked up this antique parlor table for a few bucks at the thrift shop. It was pretty beat up and had some damage I needed to take care of but it had just the pretties details and the solid wood top that I knew could be saved. 
So I got to work.

First things first, was to expose that gorgeous top.
I used my Ryobi Cordless sander
to make quick work of it so I could get back inside and out of the snow.

Once it was all sanded and smoothed out I prepped it for the stain.
I decided to go with General Finishes Brown Mahogany Gel stain to make that quarter sawn oak POP!

While the top was drying I had to decide what color to paint the base.
I put a sample of two colors on and loved both, but the Westminster Green really caught my eye and so it was decided.

I think you can see why I loved it.
Its so rich and worked so well with the warm mahogany color of the top.

Well, I better get back to work.
Luckily I have some fun new paint to play with. 
Hopefully the weather gets warmer and sunnier!
Until next time,
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!
