It’s done (well, it’s been done for a while, but I haven’t had the chance to write it up. What can I say, life happens y’all)! I’ve finally completed my project of refinishing the bar table I picked up from Facebook Marketplace for $50. It was not the easiest project I’ve ever done, but I am so happy I put the effort into the table, rather than just painting it white and calling it a day.
For those of you following along on Instagram (@madaboutdecorblog) you might recall that J and I were in the process of siding our house in early October. I thought I would share some pictures of the before, during and after!
Overall, the siding was in decent condition. It was cracked in a few spots (it probably didn’t help that J hacked the bottom of a few pieces with a weed wacker) and slightly faded from the sun. The color reminded me of a powder blue suit from the 70s and it didn’t help that the brick in the front was also painted the same gross powder blue color as well, just really rounding out the gorgeous curb appeal. NOT.
You hear it all the time, “Kitchen’s sell houses.” For me, this could not be more true! The first time I walked into our house and saw the kitchen, I was sold. I loved the large island, the beautiful granite counter tops and the cool glass subway tile backsplash. The large picture window in the front of the house combined with the windows on the opposite wall flood this room with afternoon sunlight. There were so many things to love about the kitchen, except for one thing.
