Funky Little Table

I had no idea what I was making when I started cutting some recently acquired trim wood, but soon decided on a little table.  I made the base first from the trim boards and other free wood from a pallet pile.  I then hunted around for a table top and found an old cupboard door that had been stripped on one side.  I was going to paint the base white and stain the cupboard door when I noticed some fantastic paint colors on the edge of the door.
I started sanding on the other side and found white, red, mauve, yellow, orange, bright green all under the minty aqua color.

I decided a funky side table was in order so I painted the base orange and added the fun cupboard door.
 And how about this brassy candlestick I painted with Annie Sloan chalk paint?
Oh and a fun little suitcase too.
I love letting the unexpected surprise dictate the project--going with the flow works for me.


  1. Loving the colors you found and the table you made! Great repurpose!

  2. Love that table!! How clever of you to sand through the colors and leave it showing. Now, if I can just find some old wood with 6 or 7 layers of paint. Hmmmmmmm!

  3. Very cute!! Love all the colors that you found in the cupboard door. Really adds to it. I'm working on a project right now, not really knowing what the end will bring. Just going with the flow and adding as I go.

  4. Holy hell....I want this table!!



Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate your kind words!
