The Gardner Sofa Table - Before & After

Do you remember my post from a few weeks back when I admitted my disappointment when a sofa table I had spotted fell through? Does anyone remember that? Boy, I am sure glad things worked out the way they did because I now have the most beautiful one of a kind sofa table that I look at everytime I enter the family room! We picked this piece up late one Friday night a few weeks back. We had quite a few "treasures" on our list to pick up and quite honestly I didn't really know what we ended up with and what fell through the cracks but this one made it home with us.We three toned this piece with white drawers, grey body frame, and the beautiful walnut stain on top.
We did some heavy distressing to show off all of the great details on the corners and those long legs.
It was a beautiful sunny day (and pretty hot actually) when we finished up The Scarlett Dresser and this sofa table for our own home. I couldn't help but snap a photo of the corner of our shop as well as the beautiful backdrop against the blue sky. Occasionally my mom wanders out to see what project is being completed next and I saw her step back and take in The Scarlett Dresser. I asked her "Hey Mom, you want this one?" So guess what. The red beauty is going up to the ranch house and I have to admit that I am pleased it is staying so close!
Up next we have just put the finishing touches on another card catalog for a client. We are also working on a few other custom projects as well as making visits to The Old Flamingo with new inventory. We have a black dresser that will be going in there this week! Thanks for everyone's comments of support and for all of those stopping in the store to see our pieces. I had the opportunity to meet Ann on Saturday when we went in to hang some banners and deliver some black end tables. It was so fun to meet her and wish I could be there everyday to welcome each of you! Thanks again.
