Life is too short...

Thought for the day:
"Life is too short to waste time matching socks."
So true!
 It's a philosophy I've been living by (without realizing it) ever since I started having kids. :)
I think this quote belongs on my laundry room wall...
And if my laundry room was big enough, I would put this table in it to fold laundry on...
because, surprisingly, I do enjoy folding laundry... just not socks. :)
Where can you envision this cute little table?
A sewing/craft room that needs a little pop of color?
A vintage wedding reception "sign in" table?
A cheery kitchen or breakfast nook?
A fun desk in a home office?
Whatever it's purpose, it will look good doing it,
painted in ASCP "Antibes Green" with a hard wax finish.
Dimensions are: 48" x 30" x 29 1/2" tall
The table is SOLD.
Thanks, and have an awesome day!

Updated Hutch in Antibes Green

This hutch was in dire need of a makeover...
Although it was structurally sound, the back was cracked, and that bubbly plastic? Ew...
So first thing, I replace the plastic with double strength glass.
 It's not a big monster of a piece, so I thought I'd do something bold. Inspired by springtime, I chose Antibes Green by Annie Sloan.
We replaced the cracked backing with some reclaimed lumber...

Lined the drawer, and added cup pulls...
It's a sweet little number, isn't it?

It would look mighty fine filled with white ironstone, or tarnished silver,
or stacks of fabric for that matter... What would YOU put in it?
Thanks, and have a splendid day!
