One of the pieces I did was an old side table. I actually had an idea in mind when I came across some awesome knobs on clearance. You know I love knobs. I think is is quite the obsession! If I like them and they are reasonable I will buy them before I have something to put it on as in this case.
I have been decorating for spring and just finished my Spring Mantle. I remembered buying some little bird knobs. I just fell in love with them. They are so cute!
So I pulled out this side table.
Very boring but has some nice lines to it. I like the glass doors. So as I was trying to decide what to do with this, the only thing I knew for sure is what knobs I wanted.
I then decided to break the glass out. Oh yes I did!!!
Funny when you want things to break it is much harder then it looks and it doesn't always break the first time. After repeated blows of the hammer, it came crashing through. Remember to use safety glasses when breaking glass! It is also good to have gloves on to remove it. This came out pretty clean so it wasn't hard to remove.
I painted it Duck Egg. I then applied some chicken wire to the area where the glass came out. It kinda went with the overall look I wanted. Then I came across a big problem. The pulls I wanted to use didn't work together. They were too big side by side.
The doors would not open and close right. BUMMER!
So back to the drawing board. Well that's what I thought until I cam up with another idea.
I decided to fill one of the holes with wood putty. This allowed one of the pulls to be used. I worked perfectly too because there was a magnetic piece to hold the doors shut.
Isn't she just adorable? It just works so well with this piece. It makes me happy just to look at it.
I added both clear and dark wax to a lightly distressed look.
It just feels like spring to me. What about you? Tell me what you think!!
What would you have done with it? I think it is fun to let the
