Antique Church Fair Table4:00:00 AM
This adorable antique table comes with a little story...
My church has a fantastic fair every year and the "good stuff" goes into an auction.
It is a silent auction but you can see the bids on a piece of paper.
I bid on this table right away and as it was getting down to the end and I had to leave I had another church member keep an eye on the bids for me.
I told her I would go up to a certain price and she said she would make sure I got the table.
Mind you the bidding was unbelievably cheap for this table.
An hour later, I lost the table.
It seems she went on break and another church member got the table. For way less than I would have paid I might add....
Anyway this man took the table home and his wife didn't want it.
When he heard that I offered to buy the table he said I could have it, he would call me.
Well to make a long story short... over a year later he got back to me.
I had completely forgotten about the table and now it was FREE.
His wife just wanted it out of the house.
That's the quick down low on how I finally "won" this beautiful antique table.
I really wanted to keep it for myself and because it was stained and scratched up, I painted it white... I love neutrals in my house.
I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in Pure White.
This table being an antique stained the white paint a bit so I used this quick tip to stop the staining.
I distressed the edges using fine sandpaper.
This beauty is finished and as much as I love it, I have no room left to put it in my house.
I hope this beautiful antique table can finally find a forever home!
