Mable, Mable, Set the Table...

Thanks Kat!
Ok. The After.
She may be an old country girl but with an updated color combination to play up her modern side, she's no Plain Jane. For the Fantabulous Mable Table, its all in the details:
Turned Legs


Lots of Dimension

You've heard me say before that I love Black and White. Well now I'm only falling deeper. Measuring 66 1/2" long x 41 1/2" wide by 30" high the Mable Table is solid wood refinished in black with a khaki glaze that brings out all her gorgeous curves. To keep Mable really family friendly, I left the table top deliciously distressed and highlighted with glaze. Now little hands that leave their mark- sometimes permanently-will just add to her awesome character and uniqueness. Of course I gave her generous amounts of poly for protection and a little sparkle.
Mable is sans a leaf.

The Mable Table comes with six solid wood chairs-three Carved-Back and three Windsor. All six chairs were refinished in cream paint with a mocha glaze that totally compliments their color without being too harsh. They have a little extra distressing, revealing one or two secret layers.

The Mable Table has a great sense of playfulness because there is no set way to put it together. Alternate the chairs. Put one kind on one side and the other across. Mix it up however. It always looks great! And the best part? Its a one of a kind-no one else has this table.
Just Reduced!

Show and Tell (Not Show and Sell ) :)

For today's show and tell I brought this scrumptious, Chunky Chalkboard to share:

As black and white (or cream, actually) is fast becoming my favorite color combination, a chalkboard like this seems like pure, yummy eye candy. Plus, it embodies all my other favorites. A little chipped, a little distressed, a little glazed. Isn't it just perfect in all it's gorgeous imperfection?

Unfortunately, this one isn't for sale, exactly. Tyler's company is having a charity auction and he thought it would be a great idea for "us" to contribute something from {The Fine House}. Situations like this always cause me great stress and produce lots of self-second-guessing, though I'm sure that's not the correct way to express it. So, after much hemming and hawing the Chunky Chalkboard is the lucky pick. I sincerely hope that it tickles someone's fancy and can contribute a small part to someone in need.

*As for more lovely merchandise, I have some great stuff up my sleeve, preparing for a big reveal. The next few days may hold a sneak peek...
