Arles Side Table and Garage of Good

   Huge announcement!  I will be selling my pieces Saturday, May 26th at Garage of Good near the Pearl Brewery!  Garage of Good is a sale features local artisans and I am thrilled to find a venue that fits my needs.  The Pearl Brewery is awesome - you can come buy my furniture, go to the farmer's market and eat at La Gloria, one of my favorite restaurants!

     In gearing up for that, I am starting to work on the furniture Crystal gave me in return for helping refinish her kitchen island.  This is a little side table, approximately 30 wide.  I say approximate because Blake "borrowed" my tape measure a couple of hours ago and I still can't find it.  It's probably up a tree or something.  The finish on the table was flaking off and there was a ton of water damage on top.
I sanded down the top, made some minor repairs, and stained the top.  Then I painted it with Arles chalk paint, a creamy yellow that I just have been itching to put on something, and distressed and dark waxed it.  I finished it off by putting a cute knob on it! 

A close up of the knob:  Got it at World Market, by the way.
