What is it with me and stripy little Tables?

My lovely sister-in-law Dayna called me on Saturday morning to let me know that her antique-collecting neighbours were having their annual garage sale!! 

And her wonderful words went something like this ...."I've already bought you a bunch of nice stuff" 


So excited!

This little table was one of her scores! LOVE it!

It was painted white, and quite lovely as it was, but you know me....I can't resist a little project. What is it with me and stripes these days??

I think I'm coming seriously close to overdoing it.


I did my usual "green-tape" job...this time alternating thin and thick stripes, to switch it up a bit.

A little distressing....and there you have it. 

A new little side-table. Perfect for a little "tea for two".

The cute little milk/sugar set was a gift from my awesome husband, who came back from last week's business trip with an Anthropologie bag full of goodies!

How well does he know me? :)

I couldn't resist picking the last two peonies from our garden......I just enjoy them so much more inside where I can admire them all day long :)

  1. Just the stripes...Im the same at the bold patterns...right now..I always feel like every room needs a bit of wow factor. Great job honey x

  2. When your stripes come out so darling as yours do, I say strip it up! I love this table and bookmarking it for inspiration on master bedroom side tables....


  3. What a gorgeous little table. I love the stripes they look so cute. You are one lucky girl to have such a thoughtful husband! xx

  4. Oh what a gorgeously cute little table - love the stripes.

  7. It's so cute. I love how you distressed it. How did you do that? It looks like it was always like that.

  8. Love the alternating thin and thick stripes, great idea! And the distressing gives it such charm.

    And your peonies are gorgeous :)

  9. Love the strips Tracey, your table looks fabulous!! ~ Tina xx

  10. What a cute find and what a truly fabulous job you did! The table looks lovely. Kudos to your hubby :)

  11. That is very cute, I must say that I love the grey you use and I have been inspired by your blog to paint my dining hutch & coffee table grey (haven't done it yet though, too busy working on other projects). I have bought the paint, just need to find the time (and energy to empty the hutch of its contents!) I have only done stripes once, candy-coloured ones on my kids table and chairs (it is on my blog), I love how it turned out. The other day I saw a gorgeous pink and white painted set of drawers on a blog but I can't remember where (oops), it was so gorgeous I am inspired to try that on a duchess I have waiting to be painted.
