Mirror Top Coffee Table
Hey! What a great day I had yesterday. Thank you guys for joining the Treasured Finds Facebook group. I really didn’t know if you would be interested in the group or not. Happy to say so far we have 70+ members. If you have no idea what I’m talking about there is more info at the bottom of this post.
On to the topic of today’s post. Would you buy or have a mirror top coffee table in your home? The JTS bought this one at an auction. I love the style and I really like the mirror…but it makes me nervous. The JTS and I have almost broken the mirror already. He loaded the table into the backseat of the truck to haul it home. When he hit the brakes the table tilted and the mirror fell out. Yep, it’s not glued down. He didn’t know that and neither did I! I was checking out his purchase in the workshop and tilted the table to look underneath when I realized the mirror had slipped. Yikes. Could have been serious. We don’t need any bad luck and we sure don’t need any cuts caused by broken glass.
Needless to say I think I will paint the table top and leave the mirror off. I just have to decide what color to paint the table. I’m thinking basic black. I may try the new FolkArt Milk Paint on it!
The JTS also bought the little stool and the child’s potty chair at the auction. The seat of the chair has been replaced with wood. I think when the chair is painted it will be darn cute. Someone told hubby that the small stool is for milking goats. Don’t know about that because I’ve never milked a goat. Don’t think I want to either.
Next you get a sneak peek at my themed furniture project for Thursday. I have a plan but not sure it’s going to work out. I painted the project yesterday but may repaint it today. Decisions, decisions.
Yep, that’s me. Thought I would give you guys a look at the things I get into when painting. I was mixing white paint with water to use as a furniture wash and ended up splashing paint on my hair, face, glasses, and clothes. The paint didn’t hurt the shirt because it has a ton of holes and is already covered with paint. I hate to throw the shirt away because it’s soooo soft. My small point and shoot camera has tiny dots of white spray paint all over it from a prior project. To say things get messy around the workshop is an understatement.
Now about the Facebook group. The group is for you guys….my friends….. to share photos of treasured finds, ask questions about projects, get ideas, etc.. You can join the group by clicking here… Facebook Group Treasured Finds …and click the Join Group button on the right side of the header. I will approve you for the group as fast as I can. I have to do it this way to keep spammers out. I had one spammer ask to join the group yesterday. I can usually tell if a Facebook personal page is the real thing or a fake. Hopefully no one slips through.
Have a great day. See you tomorrow.
