~Thrift Store Find~

I wanted to share with you a coffee table,
 I found at a thrift store.
 I could imagine it painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
I was with my friend, Mary, 
when we spotted this table at the thrift store.
They were going to throw it away.
It just needed some tender loving care.
First, Stan sanded the table.
Then, we painted it with Annie Sloan Old White Chalk Paint.
Then we scuffed some edges to make it look distressed.
Now I have a new vintage coffee table!
You can always find that special treasure
 at a thrift store!
Happy Shopping!
I love displaying artichokes that have flowered.
The artichokes are from our garden.
The flower is such a bright purple,
very pretty!!
I found the cutest French bag at 
Barnes & Noble Bookstore 
the other day.
Love the embroidery on it!!
Have a wonderful week!!


  1. Love everything you're sharing today, Jody. The table - what a deal, and it turned out beautifully! And I don't think I've seen artichokes in a flowering stage. . .but we only see and buy them at the Farmer's Market, don't think they'd grow in our zone, or we'd definitely have some as they're a favorite with us. The cute French straw bag is adorable, and I love how you've put the flowers in it!

  2. That coffee table is so pretty! Looks great in your room too. I did not know artichokes flowered like that .....gorgeous! Those are huge. LOVE the straw bag.

  3. What a great coffee table. It looks terrific you and Stand sure worked your magic on it.

    I love all your pretty flowers in a row.

    Have a great weekend - it's going to be HOT.

  7. You both did a beautiful Job on the coffee table! What a great find.

  8. We have lived with what we call, 'beg, borrowed, and stolen(off the curb) basically our whole lives. Who knew, it would become so chic, to be pickers! LOL, gorgeous revival on the table and looks de-lish in your room. Grins, Sandi

  9. Jody, You and Stan made that table awesome. I love the shape of it so much. My Teddy Bear saved an old table for my daughter, it's posted on my blog about 5 posts back. I think Liz would have loved your table too. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
