this is the summer of projects for me, apparently! we decided to stay home most of the summer with a couple of small trips, so this has allowed for tons of time to work on our summer list, and plenty of time for projects for me! between these 2 things, very little time has been left for work, which has been good and bad – nice to have a break, but stressful still.
this table was done at the beginning of summer.
a few years ago we got this hand-me-down table from my brother’s family. its got a fun shape and is great quality.
we’ve used it for a long time in our playroom, to play on, jump off of, do school work at, etc.
when we first got the table, the girls and i decoupaged the entire thing with scrapbook supplies.
it was a really fun project, and i fully intended to seal it with epoxy, but only got around to a few coats of mod podge.
then silas got to it.
when he was still little, he found a small lifted edge of paper. and peeled off the whole table top!
here’s our living room with our other coffee table. while i like the shape and style of this table, it felt small between these 2 big couches, so i decided to switch the coffee tables with each other.
i was happy with the look, but the round coffee table with the wood top blended right in with the seagrass rug underneath. boring.
i grabbed a couple cans of this pretty paint, and a leftover bit of paint from our sofa table in mermaid’s net by behr, and got to work!
i love the bit of color here without being too in-your-face bright. i ended up grabbing some random wood stain and thinning it out for a quick wash on top to age it out a bit.
i sprayed on a couple coats of clear and was good to go!
