Back in the Game

It's been forever since I have done any real projects. After getting the house last May, I haven't had much time for the fun stuff.
Well, that needed to change...
First though, I needed to find something to make a project out of.........

I had some errands to run last week and I stopped into a little secondhand store that seems to always be closed whenever I do go by- except for this time- it was open!
The place was FREEZING though... absolutely no heat in there.
The owner said she polled a bunch of customers and asked if they would rather she have heat and her have $500-$600 a month electric bills(which would raise the prices) or would they rather bundle up and deal with the cold.
I guess the cold won out. lol
Everyone was walking around bundled up.

I found this round coffee table..... not just any round coffee table but a Heywood Wakefield table.
The top is also a lazy susan.
 It was pretty scratched up and dirty(poor thing).
 It didn't matter; all I could see was potential.

After some good cleaning, checking out my paint stash and looking at my idea board; I came up with this....


I had been looking for a round coffee table forever!

I guess good things do come to those who wait. :)


  1. That is so cool! How did you get the numbers so straight? You did a good job of painting it!

  2. That's awesome! I was just thinking about you the other day and wondering how you were doing. Even came over to see if I had missed a post or something. Good to hear from you!

  3. That is awesome! I couldn't wait to see the after picture, there was so much you could do with that great find. Nice work!

  4. Please move the tree on your blog or get rid of it. It makes trying to read nearly impossible. And I like your style and ideas! Readability will always trump design elements! Trust me! I was a publishing major!
