instant coffee table ~

Hello my friends, I have been under the weather lately ~
I have been diagnosed with vertigo ~ not a nice thing, but I am on the mend and back again with a smile on my face ;-)

Mr. Vintage and I picked up some chippy table legs last summer in Port Stanley.  He knew he wanted to make a table or something with them.  The other day a friend stopped by and brought some barn boards to us ~ such a good friend ~

Well,  here is the instant coffee table Mr. Vintage created

We didn't even paint the barn boards ~ we left them as is ~

Love the chippy legs and the rustic touches ~

and the lace table runner is perfect with the rustic barn boards ~

I also bought a clock face at an antique store a while ago and yesterday I felt a little better and decided to do something with it.

Here it is before ~

and after ~

Instant wall art ~

These projects were quick and easy and I love them both ~

Now, time to rest ~

A cup of tea and some magazines ~

Do you have any projects on the go?  I'd love to hear.  Hopefully, this bout of vertigo will be gone ~ soon ~  I can't sit around and do nothing.  It makes me crazy ~ sigh ~




  1. Oh no! I hope you get better soon! Vertigo is no fun! Your projects turned out beautifully. Love the table! And what a miracle white paint can produce! Love the clock in white! Thanks so much for all you good wishes with my little shop space!

  2. Oh no!!! I do not like it when I get it. Do you get that nausea too? I love your table. I think it is just fantastic and it looks great. So does your clock face.
    Not really any projects other than getting ready for my daughter's wedding here in 10 weeks. :)
    I will be making cute things though when the time is closer.
    I do hope you feel better soon.

  3. Love your barn board coffee table and the clock looks great to ! Oh I do hope you get better fast !

  4. Oh we are busy with photos from a photo shoot we did on Sat for a client of him and his horses ! Get well !

  5. I sure hope you feel better soon. It's hard to take it easy when you have so much you want to do. Love the coffee table. Your hubby is so good at seeing what you envision! Take care, my friend!

  6. Oh poor you. I had this once and it isn't nice, isn't nice at all. Hope your beautiful finds help make you feel better. xx

  7. I'm right there with ya! Last year I had a concussion and I thought I'd go mad having to sit around so much! EEK! Feel better my friend.
    The table is darling!

  8. I have vertigo quite often. I so know how you must feel. The table is fantastic!

  13. I like the table and the clock. I get my husband to help too. I am not a power tool gal.

  14. Love the table and the clock!!

    As for is not fun. I have it too ~ acts up every now and then. Take it easy...did you get the medicine?

  15. I'm sorry to hear about your vertigo Marianne. I have a friend that has it too but I don't know much about it other than one is very dizzy no matter what position they're in. Not fun at all! I love your barn board table. It is really rustic but pretty with the pale paint and green legs. The clock is cute too. I hope you feel better soon. Blessings, Pamela
