First up is this console table. It was on top of a bunch of old junk in a thrift store. Solid wood and all the pieces are there. I believe it was around $15 so I good deal! It will be a fun project to work on and see it literally come together!
The second is this little vintage table base. Typically, these tables have a marble top but sadly that is missing. I couldn’t leave it behind as I thought that one day I will be able to get a new top made. In the meantime, it joins the other pieces in the garage!
And last up is this sweet little bench. My daughter, Ella just got a new bed and we are changing up her room a bit. I can’t believe it but we plan on – gasp – painting over the stenciled walls (post HERE)! I think this bench will go in it. She isn’t so keen but once painted and with new fabric, it may pass a 16 year old’s decor test!
I’m working on the Bowfront dresser this week – stay tuned for the progress!
I’m excited to see the finished products!
You probably already know this ….. but just in case…. many “stone yards” sell remnants and scraps for very low prices. Some will even cut for you ( with a template ). Often the pieces are too small or not desired colors.
Always looking forward to your next post!
Thanks for the tip, Ronda! I shall definitely look into it – I believe there is one not too far from my house 🙂 Cheers!
Another alternative for the little round table would be to put a tempered glass top with the reverse side painted. Perhaps a stenciled design with a solid or marblish finish over it for background. That way the glass top is easy to clean and the painted underside is protected.
Great minds think alike! I had the exact same idea!
As always, I know your end results will be amazing. Love these pieces
Thank you, Ivory!

I recently made over a very similar vanity bench and used the softest fake fur … it was beautiful and teen approved. If she picks out the fabric, she’ll love it! That table base is amazing … what a great project that will be. Have fun!
WISH I LIVED CLOSER SO WE COULD GO SHOPPING TOGETHER, YOU ARE A TREASURE MAGNET!!
