the white shabby table

I am so excited to share with you all the finished result of this old table we found on the curbside.
My partner in this project as with almost all of my projects would be my hubby and I absolutely love how well we work together. He also understands the need for shabbiness around here so we make a great team. ;)
I spotted this stack of old fence panels in a back lane just waiting to be picked up. We got the OK to help ourselves to them and grabbed what we needed. The length of the boards were perfect, so no cutting involved there.

Two coats of white paint on the table legs seem to do the trick. After the table top was in place, I simply took some sandpaper to the table for a more aged look.





To finish off the look I made a very quick dreamy table runner and a little cake which I placed under a simple chicken wire cloche.
I couldn't be happier with how it turned out and waiting to use the table soon for a Birthday party! My oldest son will be turning 5 this month and I've never thrown him an organized party, so this year I plan on it.

Linking up to these parties:
