Display Case side table and more

Today is a very special day! A day when my life was changed........


For the better......


because of this beautiful baby.....




Happy Birthday!  I love you!

.......Now for the redo....


I found this old display case. It was originally from The Bombay Company.










It has a cute little drawer in the front and curvy legs!

I painted it black and removed the grey board from the inside of the piece to upholster it.


I used an old coffee sack for the fabric


Scuffed up the paint and waxed









The top opens so you can display items




You can also display things on the top


I love the artsy feel to the piece now.

Before




After

Oh and I sold my piano bench last week. Funny right after I sold it I found another one to redo!


Now to think up something different!

Hope you stop a moment to appreciate the beauty of the day!

I love how you distressed the finish

Love the table redo, but it is your daughter who is truly stunning. Nice job on both, lol.

It looks great! I know it's not a dining room table or an armoire, but I think it's one of my favorite before and after projects. Great job!
Hope you have a nice Birthday Celebration planned! Enjoy it :)

I have the very same table (covered with a burlap table cloth right now) and I think I will try to do the same...I love this makeover...did you prime it first? with what color? Varnish it? wax it? LOVE it!!
