Just a Little Black Table

Good Friday.  Just got back home from a wonderful vacation.  Me and my husband headed down to Charleston, South Carolina.  It was just beautiful down there and the weather was nice until Thursday, but it was warmer than good ole Michigan.  It was nice to just get away and relax.  Well, time to blog again and I forgot to take a before picture.  I found this cute little square table that had some clean lines, not modern and not an antique, but cute. I didn't like the brown wood color and thought that another little black table could go anywhere.  I figured that everyone could use another black dress so why couldn't one use another black table.

So I painted it black and wiped all the edges of the table with a silver paint.  It looked distressed but it wasn't.

Just like a black dress, the knob on the table needed a little extra bling.  I had this silver earring that I took off the back and glued (E6000) it to the knob.  It still needed a little bit more bling so I added another sparkly earring to the top.

So here is my little black table.  Not too fancy but it would be a nice addition to any room, with just a little bling.

The chair next to the table is going to be my next project.  It needs a little TLC, but the cushions are in great shape, not the wood.
So what do you think?  Until next time, Dianne......

  1. Sometimes a little black is all it takes to make a piece lovely. Love that chair, can't wait to see what you do!

  2. Dianne, you've inspired me so much with all of your furniture make overs! I'm going to give it a try this weekend starting with a pair of matching nightstands. I'm very excited! If they look as half as good as yours do, I'll be happy!

    We're going to Charleston this summer - I can't wait! I've heard only good things about it.

    Take care,

  3. The table is great and the knob is perfect! You did a wonderful job.

    Best wishes,
