On Reclaiming Furniture

I discovered a small table being thrown away recently. It was black and the paint was chipping, but it was potentially pretty, and very light. I was hoping to have a table for a lamp in our dining room, so I was excited to pick it up.

After cleaning and painting with some left over white paint in the house, this is what it looks like:

Definitely not perfect, but clean and empowering!

Meera, note the birdies-- they are just waiting to be framed and put in their Final Destination on the wall. We love them!

Our ducks were a gift from Eug's aunt-- tradition says that the ducks symbolize the couple in marriage-- ideally moving forward together.

I like the table! I haven't seen it yet, have I?
