Chippy Table Love

This has been such a wonderful week for me! I had been feeling so weary and I am so thankful for the little joys that lifted my heart this week... Silly things, like my husband finding a gorgeous white old chippy window in the dumpster... And important things like finding out I got a new job! I'll be the Elementary Coordinator for Children's ministry at our church! Such an answer to prayer!

And, really fun things like finding this amazing little table for free.... 


It needed a little work because it was REALLY chippy and a bit wobbly. I sanded it down, sealed it with a few coats of clear, and re-enforced some of the screws. 

Isn't it just adorable! My husband thinks its really girly... but I'm in love. {Yes, with both the table and my husband ha!} 


I added a table runner and some place settings... with cute nests for Easter...




See the dumpster rescued window in the background! Still have to figure out how and where to hang it.

Well, I hope everyone has a fabulous Easter Weekend! 
Nana and Papa are in town and Ava will be spoiled rotten I'm sure. 
Can't wait to celebrate our RISEN Lord. 
Happy Easter!

  8. This is amazing! Great find! I'm usually pretty jealous of when people find such great "dumpster finds" but I was lucky enough to come across one today, and just what I needed too! I'm staging my late father's condo and was in need of some picture frames, and much to my excitement when I was taking out garbage in his building I found 2 wooden frames on a shelf in the garbage/recycle room! SCORE! They were a hideous shade of teal ( which normally I'm a fan of) but nothing a little paint can't handle!!

  15. Gorgeous table... I would be in love with it too! Wish I could get a free window too! LOL! I've been looking around for an old window but more than what I want to spend... especially when I'm always reading about people getting them for free. What's the secret?? My theory.. I must live in the wrong place! :P

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a sweet comment! I'm a new follower too:)

  21. I love your table, I love the chairs, I love the place settings...ok I love everything!!! And where did you get that runner!?!

    ReplyDelete
  22. This is breathtaking...seriously takes me to a happy place. I would love to transform my entire house to this sort of look and feel. Sigh. Did you make the table runner? I just got a Silhouette Cameo (yipee!) and wonder if the heat transfer feature would allow me to do this?

    Popping in from Sumo's Sweet Stuff. I'd love to feature this on my linky party if you have time to join. We get going each Tuesday on Teagan's Travels. Here's the link to this week's party:

  23. Love your little table and the white dishes. I could kick myself for passing up on chippy windows, not once, but twice.

    Congratulations of you new job.

  24. You are so lucky to find that gorgeous chippy table for free!!!! Love it so, and love you dishes with bird inside - so very cute. I sure wish I found a table like this - but I did buy a chippy window frame and just hung it up. Take care of that table someone might want to steal it from you!!! Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration at Sunday's Best.

    Sincerely,
    Michele
