Lots of info and a redo

My sweet husband picked up this table for me from a lady on craigslist for $50. I thought it was shorter and planned on using it as a desk but when it got here I realized it was way too tall for that. So I turned it into a buffet table for my dining room.

Sorry the picture is crappy. When I blew it up, it looked worse! Anyways, the lady had just stained it. The color reminded me of what my socks looked like after playing softball in Sedona once. Which was funny because the color was called Sedona red I guess.

I painted it Sea Cliff from Glidden. It's not one of the chips in the store but if you have the fan deck, it's on there. And of course, I used a little "Provincial" stain over the top.

I also had my friend Jenna take some family pictures for us to make this pallet art. She did such a good job! Especially considering Pax was a MANIAC the entire time. If you live in the Gilbert/ Queen Creek area and need an inexpensive photographer, she's definitely your gal. You can contact her through her blog, Paddington Way. I bet if you ask nice, she could probably even use props from my house for your pictures.

And finally, I threw my white dishes into some locker baskets I bought a couple years ago in Canton, Tx. The dishes are from Walmart of all places. Canopy makes them. They are the cheapest solution for Pottery Barn look dishes.

Also, don't forget about the barn sale this weekend. I'll be there most of the day on Friday so stop by and say HI! The address is 648 E Lehi Rd in Mesa. It's during Lehi days so bring the family and enjoy the warm weather! There will also be a rodeo, pony rides, dance, carnival and lets not forget all the good food!


  1. Great job on the table.

    I too bought my white dishes at Wal-mart eons ago. I think I have a set of 24 for something crazy cheap.
