Two End Tables Get a Sweet Country Makeover - Before and After

The weekend before last I ran over to an estate sale not far from us and scored big. For $100 I picked up a wooden sofa, matching chair and coffee table, a rocking chair and these two end tables. I am planning on refinishing the rocking chair and selling it on craig's list to try to recoup some of that $100 I spent. But the sofa, matching chair and coffee table I have big plans for on our deck. Meanwhile, I went to work on these two old end tables almost immediately thinking that we could really use them in our living room. On top of that, I've just been chomping at the bit to try the refinished top and painted base that I've been seeing online so much lately that I just love.

Stenciled Rug!

I needed a new rug for my outdoor patio but didn't want to spend too much so I found a rug at Home Depot for $17, applied a stencil pattern to it and sealed it with spray on poly. Not sure how it will hold up but our weather in South Texas is mild so I'm curious to see how it does! At this price, I may make another one for the holidays!

DIY Wall Stencil

I was browsing tile for absolutely no reason since I have no bathroom or kitchen renovations in my near future. I came across some tile, fell in love, and couldn’t get the pattern out of my head. I decided to put my design crush to good use and created a wall stencil out of the same pattern. Using a pieced of paper, a pencil and a paintbrush I created a stenciled wall in my entryway.
