What I Purchased For Our Small Patio

Happy summer everyone!  Just a few weeks ago my husband cleaned up our patio space and now all it needs is some decorating love.  That's where I come in!   This post contains affiliate links For our DIY bluestone patio, my plan is to maximize the 10'x10' space by setting up two different zones.  One for dining and one for lounging.  Our Patio I purchased a black and white patio sofa about four years ago so I thought I would make it simple and use these colors as my inspiration for the design. For me, these timeless colors add elegance and make a space look crisp and neat without much effort.    Here is what I purchased for our small patio BISTRO TABLE SET This bistro table set is elegant, simple and the perfect size for just the two of us and our small patio. If you love this set as much as I do you can find it at my Amazon shop under  Home Favorites .  It comes in 8 different colors if you're not so keen on the black set.

Finished Night table in the guest bedroom

If you've been reading along, you already know about my roadside find night table and the tutorial on how I removed the wood veneer from it.  In case you missed this post you can catch up on it here how to remove wood veneer from wood furniture

This year I decided to do a complete makeover of one of the bedrooms in our home. The room is now complete and you can see it here  (guest bedroom makeover).  I wanted to use this night table in the bedroom, but not looking like this.

But more like this.

Isn't she a beauty!

I applied three coats of clear gloss polyurethane to the top and the bottom. I did the same with the legs and the drawer. 
Here it is after one coat.

Here is a picture of the top of the night table before I removed the wood veneer.  Removing the water-stained wood veneer made this table new again!  I am so thrilled with the results!

It was worth all the mess 

I used gold metallic spray paint on the knob

Great roadside find, and nice transformation. The hubby has an antique buffet that has veneer that's peeling off. I haven't a clue how to fix that, but now that I know it can be removed and still be beautiful, I will have to see if he is willing to do that.

It was soooooo totally worth the mess, she's such a delicate piece of awesomeness. I'm so glad she wasn't smothered in paint, she looks lovely now.

Thank you Linda! If you do decide to go ahead and remove the veneer off of your antique buffet I think you will be happy with the results.
