Entryway Table

So, this summer has been torture with doing projects. Right before summer started I found out I was prego. So I was waiting till I was done with the first trimester to paint...then I lost the now I am painting:)! That is why I haven't been doing a whole lot of sick and tired!! But now all is well and the house projects are finally getting done!

Here is my new entry way table. I have been looking for a long time for one. It can't be too long because I have my garage door that needs to be able to open. So, one day at garage sales I FINALLY found my table. And better yet it was only $8!!!!!!

Here is the before:(which it looked okay, just well, too white!)

Cute huh? I LOVE IT!! but like I said it was a little too I started with painting it off white. I thought I would love it but I didn't. I hated it even more. It looked way to yellow. So after resting from the project for a day I got back to it. I brought it inside to see if the yellow tint would go away, but no it was worse. So, the wheels in my head started to click and I decided to do the same thing I did on my hutch...use stain! I don't even know if you are suppose to do it but I did. I distressed it and then rubbed stain on it and it turned out how my little head wanted it to...I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!

And for the after pics...

Here is the picture of the whole thing! You can't really tell how cool it looks so here is a close up!

Here is a close up of the distressing...oh I just LOVE it!

And for the final put everything together...isn't it great? I love how homey it looks!! When you are looking pretend that the rectangle item has a big bushy green plant in it:) I have to wait to get paid before I can buy the plant:) Hope you all enjoy! This has kept me smiling all day...and I can't stop looking at it!!
