Trash to Treasure and Fall Inspiration

Trash to treasure table.  My neighbor put this table on the road for trash pick up.  When my husband wasn't looking I grabbed it :)  Just kidding, he is used to my dumpster diving.  Anyhoo, it was used outside so all of the paint was crumbling off.  I brought it home and brushed it off and applied a sealer.  I liked the chippy paint look!  I then painted the top green.  I had these left over house numbers so I cut them up and applied the decal.  Lastly my trusty RL tobacco glaze was brushed on.  Since this is the 7th house we have owned I liked the idea of adding the number 7.

 Ain't it cute....The next few picks are of some fall decor scattered around the house...Enjoy!

  1. I really like your table redo! I've snagged a few tables from the side of the road, too!

  2. Your table redo is sooooo cute. I have been known to grab from the garbage and this is why! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I like your table with the no. 7 too & so glad you're liking you new home. I am in the same house. Decided to take the house off the market for a while. I'll post when it's completed. The painter will be out of town for a week so it will be a while. Thanks for checking it out. Jan
