Demilune Transformation

Pink roses in white pitcher, white beadboard, pearls

We were already on our way out from the flea market.

It was the last flea market of the year...

The cold day, plus the lack of vendors and customers was not a good combination.

Almost empty-handed, we took the last turn before getting to the parking lot, and that's when I spotted this little fella.

 I loved its lines...

But, as soon as I grabbed it, I felt bad for the poor little thing. :(

It moved back and forth like a rocking chair!

And you know that's bad when we're talking about a table.  :/

I didn't ask how much it cost. My expression said it all.

And that's why, I guess, the seller immediately asked for two dollars.

Well, I brought it home to fix it or maybe to use it for something else. It was hung on the wall in the garage and I forgot about it, until last week when I began organizing the big mess I had in there.

I was picking wood pieces from the floor and organizing the tools and stuff. Then, I had to move stuff from the wall and -hello! there she was.

Where to put it?  Yeah, inside but first, let's fix it!

Loose legs on table

The feet had been attached with nails and all of them were loose.

This was the easiest disassembling job ever. The legs were loose too.

How to remove dried glue from loose table legs

The first task was to clean it and remove the dried glue.

sanding belts

The DREMEL with the little sanding band attachment made this, a super easy job.

The feet were re-attached, this time I used screws instead of nails after a heavy dose of wood glue.
The legs were attached with wood glue after cleaning very well all the residue of dried glue on the ends and holes.

Oh, before assembling, I gave the two boards a good sanding.

distressing little table

After waiting 24 hours for the glue to dry, the table was painted with ASCP - Florence. Sometimes it looks green, other times blue, it all depends on the light.
I gave it a light distressing before applying clear wax.

Then, it was time to play. :)

Shabby chic bedroom decor - nightstand demilune table

I went for a shabby chic look.

Let's pretend she's sitting by the side of the bed of this quaint cottage...

Beadboard, wallpaper, and of course...

pink roses in white pitcher, white floor, white pearls in saucer on table

Beautiful roses add to its charm.

Oh well, I'm loving it! It's a nice dose of color on these grey days.
