Have you ever had a piece of furniture or decor that had special meaning - perhaps a family heirloom or an item given to you by a loved one - but it just didn't work in your space? That was our coffee table situation.
As my son and I stood in the kitchen making our pumpkin pie the other day, I began to reflect upon what that space looked like two years ago at this time - completely gutted.
Have you ever watched "A Charlie Brown Christmas?" Well, if you are familiar with it, you know that part when all the kids are making fun of that twig of a tree and Charlie Brown tells them all that he doesn't care...that it will be perfect...and besides, that little tree needs him? That, my friends, is how I felt about this antique church pew.
One of my son's favorite books right now is "The Little Engine That Could." Having read this story a number of times (okay, a lot), it was the first thing that popped into my head when trying to figure out how to describe the transformation of this dining set.
I am SO excited to finally get to share this with you all today! I can't believe it finally happened! So, back in June, I bought this little cherry bench off Facebook Marketplace...
While I'm hesitant to call it trash, this rocking chair I bought off Facebook Marketplace was in really rough shape. It was dirty, the wood was rough, the paint chipping, and nail heads were popping out in some places. But like any good project piece, it had one important thing: potential.
Never judge a book by its cover, right? Or maybe we should say never judge a table by its ugly green top!
