Look at these beauties! Mersman end tables. I found these at Restore.
It's part of Habitat for Humanity.
I love shopping where my purchases go toward helping others. Everyone benefits.
I originally thought they would work great as Lego tables for my nephews. But one of my nieces said she'd like them to replace her current TV end tables. She wins.
I gave my niece and nephew some paint samples and they chose Annie Sloan English Yellow. They wanted to brighten up their living area that has dark green sofa/love seat and hardwood flooring. I think it is a fabulous choice and couldn't wait to see them in their home.
It it did take me some time to get these started. I've had them for quite a few months, promising them to completion, one too many times. When I didn't get them finished when promised by Christmas, I knew I had to get them done.
I would have put a primer on first, had I known they were going to take five coats.
The finished product! I'm so happy with the results. The more I watched them cure, the more I wanted to keep them for myself. If I can figure out where to put them, I'll be on the lookout for another similar set. Aren't they beauties??
I did just enough distressing. With two boys bumping and playing, they don't have to worry about scratches or anything. They will stay as beautiful as they day they received them!
I am really loving the English Yellow - Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I have some great pieces that would look great in this color. Can't wait to share the next project!
