Blue and White Mosaic Side Table

When I look back I think I must have been out of mind to have picked up this little beauty. I think it was just one of those moments where ya just can't find anything else and desperation kicks in. God forbid I should leave the flea market with nothing. Silly I know, but it just feels like a terrific waste of time if I go home empty handed. So home it came. Lovely right?



 This was after I applied citra strip to remove a thick coat of chippy, creamy white paint. Stripping turned legs is simply no fun.  That "what was I thinking" moment creeps in again.
  This is what the drawer front looked like halfway through the stripping process. All together now, ""what was she thinking"????


 Finally after this little guy sat in my garage sucking up space for months I decided to paint it bright white and started collecting blue and white china plates to cover the top. I just love this piece now. Blue and white are one of my fave color combos.....crisp and clean! Look at her now...

I love blue and white china, and white furniture too, and this little table has both! Adorable. Looks like lots of work though, but the results are worth it.
