Hey there! Over the weekend, my hubby and I were on our way to a movie with our youngest when we came across a yard sale. A yard sale in the evening? Yes! He told me he had driven past it earlier and noticed a solid wood console table for only 7 bucks that I would probably like to redo, so, we stopped. Here's the table....I was instantly drawn to the shape of it.
Here's what I did with the console table after staring at it for a while. This may sound a little crazy, but, the top reminded me of a surfboard, sorta, and it also had a retro vibe going on. So, I decided to have some fun with it. :)
After sanding it down, I gave it two coats of a really pretty, very light aqua paint color called Icy Teal by Glidden. Then, since it reminded me of a surfboard, I taped off a 6 inch wide section down the middle and painted that white, then stenciled the number 5 in the center of the white stripe with the aqua color. No reason for that, really, other than I like the number 5 and I thought that would go with the theme of the table. After everything was dried, I sanded it down quite a bit so that it would look very distressed, you know, like a retro surfboard! LOL..... We love it!
