MISS MANNERS - ELBOWS, ELBOWS OFF THE TABLE


SO THE OTHER GIFT I GAVE MY MOM
IS A KITCHEN TABLE WHICH I PICKED UP AT
THE THRIFT STORE. I DIDN'T HAVE TIME
TO FINISH IT IN NJ SO I BROUGHT IT UP
WITH ME AND FINISHED IT UP HERE..

HERE SHE IS BEFORE...
PLAIN JANE- ALL SCRATCHED UP, AND
WORN OVER THE YEARS, YOU CAN'T SEE
HOW BAD IT WAS BY THE PICTURES..

IM SURE YOU'VE ALL SEEN THESE TABLES AT
THRIFT STORES OR GARAGE SALES.
I LOVE THE FACT THAT IT WAS ALL WOOD IT
JUST NEEDED SOME TLC AND SOME WOW FACTOR..
I PAINTED HER WITH A MUSTARD COLOR PAINT
AND A DARK STAIN ON THE TOP.

HERE IS MISS MANNERS AFTER WITH
A COUNTRY VIEW..






SO DO YOU LIKE MISS MANNERS
I PROMISE TO KEEP MY ELBOWS OFF THE TABLE!
I KINDA WISH I KEPT HER FOR MYSELF, BUT
MY MOM DID GIVE BIRTH TO ME AND RAISE ME TOO!
SO I THINK SHE HAS DIBBS...
