~FRENCH FARMHOUSE COFFEE TABLE FOR MOI~

 Snagged this French Provincial Coffee Table at a thrift store a couple of months ago.  I love how the sides fold down and it's height as well!  
No before pics...forgot to snap any.  :(  Sorry!  You'll just have to imagine her a dark cherry wood with a super-high-gloss finish.  The piece was actually in great shape...all wood, too!  
 
No MDF Board or wood products here.  Nooo...Noooo...Nooo!  This little lady is the real-wood-deal.  Not sure how old she is...maybe from the 1950's or 1960's.  Anyway...cleaned her up, sanded her down, painted her out and added one of my favorite vintage French images!

Lightly distressed the sides and edges and then applied a protective top coat!  Tahhh Dahhh!  Done!
I had every intention of taking the table to my Booth...but....I've decided to keep her.  I like her so much better than the one I've been using!  It's slightly smaller, but taller and I've always thought it was a wee bit unbalanced for the room!  Sooo...I'll be giving my old table a tiny facelift and that one will be destined for a new home!

Hope your weekend is awesome!

Love to you...
