Oh, happy day! It’s Trash to Treasure Tuesday, a time where my blogger friends and I create projects to inspire you. Afterward, you’ll see their fun in a bit. But for now, take a peek at these vintage stacking tables. Aren’t they cute?
I’m so thankful to my friend, Linda, who offered these to me. Recently, she is downsizing her mother’s things and thought I would like to have these as a project set. They’re solid wood and have a great style and function. However, they do have wear to the tops, mostly.
Nothing I can’t handle, right? I’m smitten with the turned legs with a bit of Queen Anne style to the foot. They’re cute!
Even though they’re worn, I envisioned a sort of botanical style to these vintage stacking tables. So, in order to do that, first, I use my sander to remove the mottled finish.
Undeniably, they look better with the worn finish removed. Next, I use an antique white stain to give the table tops a washed feel.
Then, to add the botanical vibe, I created three different transfers using my transfer method. I created a peony, a daisy, and a daffodil. Woot! Undeniably, my winter days already have me ready for spring blooms. Are you feeling it too?
Finally, once I have the designs on, I use two coats of a satin poly to seal them proper like.
Last, but not least, it’s time for the base and legs to get refreshed. Because these vintage stacking tables created sort of a tiered effect when together, I thought an ombré cascade of soft greens would be perfect. In addition, it’s similar to the effect I gave a set of nesting tables in this post HERE.
First, I add three different colors, one to each table.
Then, I add a smidgen of distressing. Last, I apply a touch of wax to add dimension as well as protection.
Here are my vintage stacking tables complete and ready to go.
Aren’t they fun? I’m so pleased with the outcome. I could see them in a living space with plants and oodles of light. Certainly, each one offers a unique feel with the soft tones, as well as the different flowers.
However, stacked together they are so cute! My floral design was inspired by how the stack looks put together. This kind of thing makes my heart happy. Doesn’t it look like flower petals sticking out?
The simple flowers, I feel, add just the right touch. So tell me, which one is your favorite? Likewise, if you’d like to add these sweet tables to your home decor, you can find the available in my online shop.
In addition, do pin and share these vintage stacking tables. Sometimes folks just need to see something to set the idea wheels rolling.
