Poor Wittle Table...

Poor wittle table.  Are you tired, run-down, listless?  Do you poop out at parties?  Are you unpopular?  Is that why you were destined for the trash truck?  Deserted and left to linger on the curb with the refuse your old owner deemed unusable?  Well, the answer to all of your problems came in the form of Gale of Gale's Treasures and a can of yellow paint she had in her possession.  

Or so she thought...
Gale got busy with ya.  She made a few repairs to you, filled in some holes and made you sturdy again.  Then she primed you and painted you yellow.  Did you look better?  Yes, but to Gale you still lacked oomph.  You needed something more to make you stand out from the crowd and make you the envy of the other tables you may or may not encounter.  (I don't know about you, but I rarely arrange play-dates for my furniture.)

So, Gale decided to do a checkerboard design on your edges.  She cut squares of painter's tape and placed the diagonally around the edge.  Then, since she had decided to spray paint the black, she had to totally tape up the rest of the piece.  Gale admits it took time, but she didn't mind.  

I actually don't mind the look of it all taped up myself!  Of course, I have in the past been known to cover my windows with newspapers just to make the neighbors wonder what we are up to!  Hehehehe.

Once the black paint dried, Gale put a coat of poly on the whole shebang.  Let's check it out now... 
I LOVE it!  Great job Gale!  I'm not the only one who fell in love with it because it sold within ONE WEEK of it's completion.  

You can find Gale on her Gale's Treasures Facebook page.  She's based in Virginia and loves finding discarded pieces and making them lovely again.  Head on over there and let Gale know you saw her on Furniture Flippin'.

Thanks Gale for sharing your fabulous furniture flip!  

Surprise, surprise dear readers!  Today's featured flip was not a repeat.  My midwinter break is over.  Somebody can come take Winter away now.  I'm ready for Spring no matter what that silly Phil in Pennsylvania says.  

Hurry up and get your flip in!  You know the drill.  Before/after photos and all of the details to furnitureflippin@yahoo.com .  

See you tomorrow!

  1. It's amazing what a coat of poly will do. Gives it that 'finished' look. This is a cool table! I'm no so enamoured with the checkerboard, but overall, I'm not into geometrics.
    You have put newspaper on the windows just to confuse the neighbors??? HAHAHAHAHA
