Kitchen Landing Table

When someone hands me a free piece of furniture, it’s hard to say no. Even if it’s something I don’t need… like another sewing machine table… cause, ya know, I still don’t sew.

But with the legs on this piece, it was love at first sight. So now just to remove that pesky sewing machine…

The KEYS sign and knobs are from Hobby Lobby, and the rope vase I showed you earlier this week.

    Cute idea and paint job. I could also see adding a large basket underneath it to store items that come back and forth from school. (backpack)

    I love that. I had a table that was really old and I used white paint and distressed it. I bought the best knobs at Hobby Lobby for 40% off and gave it to my sister in law for her lake house .

    Beautiful job! And I love all the white in your space. It truly let’s everything in your home shine… reminds me of the white walls of an art gallery or those oversized bright white mats used to showcase gallery walls. I love it all and wouldn’t change a thing! (Although the idea of a great basket underneath was the first thing I thought when I saw this since I’m using a sewing table in my entry and I’m actually shopping for a basket myself. ;)
