The Little Table That Could

We have some wonderful news to share with you! Our first month as a booth vendor at the Gainesville Antique Mall is now officially in the books and we are blown away by the experience. We set a very reasonable goal for the first month sales and could not imagine the response! It seemed like we couldn’t maintain a ‘full’ booth without restocking twice a week! It’s a good problem to have but one we were not expecting. Our inventory is getting low so we’ve been out picking and Georgia found this little table at a thrift store.

She is a small, but cute end table that just needed some TLC to bring back her fabulousness. Daughter took her home and applied two coats of Annie Sloan’s Duck Egg Blue.

On the left, two coats of Duck Egg Blue. On the right, one coat of Soft Wax applied.

After the second coat of paint, she looked too perfect. We decided that this little gal would be even more cute as a shabby, chic gal. After applying one coat of Annie Sloan Soft Wax, we used a 80 grit sandpaper to distress a few spots. We completed the makeover with two more coats of Soft Wax. (Disclosure: Since we wanted to sell this piece, it was important to apply two coats of wax. We want our clients to feel confident in their purchases.)

We are pretty pleased with this little table and she’ll be in available in our booth this weekend.
