Bon Appetit Side Table

Sharing the passion for creating beautiful things that celebrate life and family.....(chocolate wine anyone?)


Mixing the patina of the past with the zest of the present.  Combining family treasures with new finds and fresh new ideas.

 
Loving to decorate means your home is never done.  We love to invite our family and friends in the welcoming glow of warmth and character and strive to achieve that with style and finesse.  


My latest make-over and heading for the booth.  An old vintage folding table, lovingly restored to a warm character, restained and rewaxed with a blend of beeswax and orange oil and graced with a little savoir-faire.   Carry along on a picnic....it's the perfect size.  Let it dine along side your dinner table.....it would love to hold a worn silver champagne bucket filled with the evening's pleasure.  Or next to your favorite reading chair as a place to toss your favorite mag and tiny rhinestone tipped reading glasses.

Bon Appetit
It's a very good thing.  :)

Please join me in celebrating these blog parties this week.  What fun we will have. xoxo

Hello Lynn,
Chocolate wine? I don't drink but if I did, I'll bet this would be on the top of my list:) The table is great! Waiting for it to warm up here, It has been snowing all day again! Can't wait to get out into the yard to clean it up and do some gardening. Hope you are having a fabulous week and that it is nice an warm there:)
