Trash to Treasure Tuesday #7

This week's trash to treasure project is something I've been wanting to do since last spring. We found this adorable little table/desk at a garage sale for about twenty bucks. It was in terrific shape aside from the water marked and worn finish. We orginally bought it thinking it could be Sebastians "art table" since he's always doing his thing at the kitchen table...well it's been a full year and we still haven't managed to migrate him to this space...
I decided on a nice antique white satin finish...it's Glidden Quiet Light to be exact. I put on three coats to make sure it looked pretty... And here it is all finished sitting nicely in the family room...
I love the antique hardware...

Do you think we can get Sebastian off the kitchen table now? No, you're right, probably not. That little project turned out so well I decided to paint this little cabinet pink...Benjamin Moore Soft Cranberry...
Wonder what I should paint next?

Do you brush the paint or roll it? Both of the pieces look great. Also, I know what you should paint next!!! It's only two blocks away from where you are now.

I brush it on...and there's nothing two blocks away that needs to be painted, besides your the pro at picking paint colors!

Love the table. What I love most is that you can add decorations to the white if you get bored with it later.
