The L J Table - Custom Refinish Before & After

This little table with all of its injuries of broken legs and unattached table top sure cleaned up nicely when all put back together! Oh the details! Notice the twists and curves all up and down the legs. The white paint with the heavy distressing on the edges really highlighted these elements and you cannot help but notice the femininity of the piece.
The spindley centerpiece pulling the legs together adds yet another dimension as it sits just below the round table top.
We also refinished a charming headboard and footboard for the same client and I am wondering if this table will sit next to it. I am excited to reveal the results of that fun makeover because Leslie told me that she thought I would like her new bed and was she ever right!!! It is wonderfully quaint.

We are working on a few more custom projects and I am getting anxious to get going on our fireplace mantel. Plus we picked up an old chandelier that is getting a makeover as well. We have two days of summer left and the weekend with the big kids. I cannot believe the new school year is so close!

Just a stunning piece! Can you believe that was the 'norm' for furniture years ago -- they just don't make things that beautiful anymore! Your makeover is beautiful!
