Before & After -tiny corner table

Our front entry, is has a large floor space, but not a lot of "usable" wall space. Even if I had a lot to work with, I would have to be creative. Why? A lot of soccer playing happens in this space! The 2 front doors are one goal, and the entry into the kitchen is the other goal. If the ball bounces down the step into the living room, it is considered out of bounds. Then there is the closet side, and stairs leading up, which usually keeps the ball in play. :)

So, I was tired of the look my little table came with, and gave it an update!

Here is my After:

I cannot really have anything breakable in the front entry, so I used my shiny red bucket for color, and a butterfly for some whimsy! I think the butterfly is actually from the garden center and actually "goes" outside.

I used products inspired by THIS Hutch Redo from Traci at Beneath My Heart.

I gave the table a light sanding, 2 coats of the Valspar Premium Enamel -Satin Black (Latex Enamel, interior/exterior) and 3 coats of the Zinsser Polyurethane, Satin, oil-base, on the table top. And, a little more sanding.... The inside drawer is a fun turquoise (Rivers Edge, Behr/Home Depot.)

Your turn to find something just the right size to update!
