Do you see it?

After my long search for a small console table for the short wall behind our front door (wow, that was a lot of adjectives), I finally found one.


Ok, so it’s not the ideal table I originally had in mind – I’m not really into the traditional style and the hunter green paint – but it’s about the right size for this wall. It even has a little drawer. I wasn't actively searching for a table, and I unexpectedly found this one at a vintage/antique shop for $25. At that price, I still have some room in the budget to fix it up to match my style more. I’m feeling up to the challenge. (Paint it? Strip it and stain it? I haven’t decided yet.) After all, I'd like to think that my furniture makeover for our guest room turned out pretty well.


So what do you think? Do you see the potential too?

I like the shape and size of it. It fits the wall really well.

Cannot WAIT to see what you do. I'd totally paint it, but I paint anything that moves. =)

The table has good bones. The hunter green is weighing it down. I think a lighter color and some cute accessories will really make it sparkle! It fits well in the space. Good find and good price!

I would paint the bottom cream or white and then stain the top dark! Painted table tops just get all messed up, even with poly. Especially when you are dropping keys, etc.

Sara - I'm digging your two-tone idea. I think white would work because we also have white trim around the door and sidelights...

Can't wait to see what you do with it!
