The other day I decide that my entry needed something... (I really just needed some thing else to decorate). So I drew up my own plan, nothing fancy just what was in my head. Then went to Lowes got the wood and home I went with a mission- make an entry table.
Here she is I am very happpy with how she turned out.
Handles are from Hobby Lobby, they were 50% off, all three were $4.50. Paint color is Valspar-Foxtrot. I distressed the whole thing, used gel stain-Walnut for the top.
As for the cute drawers- well they are't real drawers( wood nailed and glued to the other wood)..
I dont know how to do drawers yet. Who needs real pull out drawers anyway it get you the cute look with out them being real.
I am so excited it adds so much to my entry!
Have a great weekend hopfully it stops snowing...
Wow, I am super impressed! Your table is so pretty and you will have so much fun changing out the decor with the seasons. Your entry way looks wonderful!ReplyDelete
What a wonderful job you have done! I wouldn't have a clue where to start. I love it!!!!ReplyDelete
I love this idea! If you don't mind me asking, how much did you end up spending for the entire project? I would LOVE to do this on my own!ReplyDelete
Oh this is a wonderful idea! I'm keeping this in my inspiration folder! I'd be thrilled to have you link this to my VIP party today! http://designergarden.blogspot.com/2011/04/vip-party-10.htmlReplyDelete

The whole table cost me under $50. Yep, thats 50 smackeroos. I know right? I already had the paint, nails, glue and gel stain.
I made anothero one for my sister. Hers is the came but a black distressed base.
I will be doing a tutorial on this soon so keep an eye out. Thanks for stopping by really I love to hear from you.

You did a fantastic job. You are an inspiration!ReplyDelete
Just wanted to tell you *thank you* for giving me the inspiration to tackle this project! My husband and I used your design to make a smaller version and I am so proud of the way it turned out! I def give you props for building this piece on your own, I would NOT have been able to complete this without my hubs and his mad woodshop skills. Check out my blog for a photo of how my piece turned out!ReplyDelete
Thanks again for posting this piece! :)
That is so great! Wow! I love it. I like that you have false drawers. You've inspired me to just go and do what you can. Your newest follower...hope you can visit me sometime soon!ReplyDelete
A. MAZING. Loooooove it Lindsay!! You. Are. Awesome. That is all I have to say. :)ReplyDelete
I love your guts for going for it. I tend to think I can't do it, and you just did it. Great job!ReplyDelete
Awesome idea! I was just saying yesterday how my entry way would need a table... I am totally inspired! Thanks!!ReplyDelete
I love this! I'm your newest follower.ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness! I love it! I absolutely LOVE that the drawers aren't real too because I was thinking... "hmmm...I could make that but there is no way I could do drawers." Then I read about the drawers and laughed out LOUD! BRILLIANT! Honestly, I love the look and don't need more drawers to stick stuff in so it's perfect!ReplyDelete
It really is beautiful and you have inspired me!
YOU GO GIRL! :0)
It's so lovely!! I didn't even know the drawers were fake! Love the two toned look, I'm planning to do this to my dining table.ReplyDelete
Holy Crow! You made that???? It's beautiful! And I am so super jealous!!! Oh man, it's awesome...great job!!!!ReplyDelete
AMAZING!! I was wondering too about the drawers!ReplyDelete
That really looks nice and the "drawers" are a clever idea. I especially love the reminder to count our blessings. :) So true! Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Hi! I just found you through Kara's party and cannot believe that you actually MADE this yourself! I had to read through it a couple of times just to be sure I wasn't mistaken. It is absolutely fabulous and I'm now your newest follower! :-)ReplyDelete
I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Isn't it the best feeling ever to build your own furniture??? Great job. It is stunning!ReplyDelete
Found you on Not Just a Housewife. I think you have an enviable sense of style. I love the way you bravely tackle DIY projects, and then take great photos of the results. I also like your honesty about some of the difficulties. You've made me your newest follower.ReplyDelete
Wow super impressed. How many people can say I just wanted to make a table and did!ReplyDelete
This is beautiful! I would have never known those weren't drawers! I would love to do something similar...I love the combination of the dark walnut stain and white distressed base. Beautiful just beautiful!ReplyDelete
I adore your table! Absolutely adore it! This is what I'd like to make for my entry as well, thanks for the inspiration. :)ReplyDelete
Lindsay, I am very inspired by the tables you made even though it was a while back. I followed your directions but I had to scale down my table because I have a small entry way area. I also made another one to put my keyboard on but not finished yet. Thanks for your ideas. I'd like to send you a picture of my table.ReplyDelete
