If you are the kind of person who ignores what I write up here and scrolls down to look at the pictures first, well, welcome back. I assume you’ve already looked at the pictures and returned up here to see what I had to say about this table makeover which is obviously NOT even the same table. Maybe you don’t even read this at all, and you are the person who is going to leave the comment that will say “Ummm, that first one is NOT even the same table.” Siiiiiiiiiiiiigh.
It actually is the same table! JoAnn liked her sturdy table well enough, but really wasn’t digging the rolled edge and fancy legs. So her husband just trimmed off the tabletop edge with his circular saw and built new legs out of 4x4s. A little paint and stain, and she has a brand new look on the same ol’ table. Check it out on her blog DIY Maven.
And here’s another farmhouse remix from one of my faves: Jesse at Nine Red. He is always coming up with something new and creative, and has such a knack for color. You may even notice his hutch makeover in the background. I love how he got down to the original wood finish and let it peek through the triangles. Triangles are totally the hip new shape now now, did you hear? It’s true. Someday it will be your turn, parallelogram. Someday.
