Workbench Becomes Entry Table
I have been wanting a little table for beside my front door and the other day as I was painting a cupboard door on a little work table my husband built me it occurred to me that I could use it! It is very rustic just like I like, and is the perfect size. The top was pretty yucky from all things I had painted and sanded and stained on it, so I asked my husband to throw on a new wood top and to add a shelf. I then painted it and stained the top.
It makes the perfect surface for some of my favorite things.
This is an antique scale weight that I found at the flea market for $1...it is one of my favorite things.
In an old wooden bowl I have all of the things that we have found digging in our yard, I love finding remnants from the past owners of our farmhouse.
A peak from my kitchen.
I love the way it turned out...except now I need a new work table:)
