Painting My "Bible" Table

Diana Wise (Sissie's Shabby Cottage) identified this table for me when I first bought it at a consignment shop as a Bible Table.  I remember giving only $29.00 for it and wanted it because it reminded me of one my grandmother had that her radio sat on.  Hers was larger than mine.

The way I love to change things, this table has remained in the condition/color I bought it for a long time.

While in our Wal Mart on Friday, I noticed they had Waverly Chalk Paint again.  They hadn't had any in a very long time, so I bought the aqua, and the ivory colors.

Now this little table carries my favorite color, but I'm considering distressing it a little.





This tends to be the favorite spot for my guests to sit.  They gravitate directly to this chair, and I must say it is extremely comfortable.

I keep my grandson's wedding pictures beside the chair, along with books with aqua covers stacked on the shelf uderneath.  I even found an aqua basket to hold our throws.

So this is my small/quick project for last week.  Easy to do, and I followed the directions from Knick of Time blog on how she painted the spindles of a chair quickly, with a sponge.  A great idea, that made quick work of this color change.

Hope you all have a nice week.  It's feeling like fall here and will soon be much colder.
