Sweet stitching side table!

Yesterday it was a $3 yard sale yucky.  Today it is my sweet little, portable, stitching side table!  I can move it to where ever I want to sit and stitch.
$3 yard sale yucky.
This is the way it looked when I brought it home.
  I drenched it in Clorox Cleanup and sprayed it with the hose.

Sweet little stitching side table!

Chalk painted using Antibes Green and Aubusson Blue mixed together.

Replaced the knob.

I took it outside and sat on the bench under the tree to stitch.
I am working on a Lizzie Kate "Then and Now" piece.

I used the Annie Sloan dark wax.

I get so excited when I can turn trash into such a treasure!
