Country table...another project done

I bought this table from Hobby Lobby about 4 years ago.  I don't have any before pictures but it was a light sage green color.  I painted it a dark brown first than decided I wanted it lighter.  So I painted it an off white.  I attached an old window that I purchased from a second hand store.  When we moved to this house one of the glass panels was broken so I removed all of the glass.

Today I finally got it decorated.  It sits by the basement door that goes outside so it was covered with tons of stuff.  Slowly I am getting what I call the extra wide hallway in the basement done.  Here is what I accomplished today.
Even though our basement is a walkout it is a little dark in this area.  I tried to use the flash but it made it look worse.  Here are some closeups.

The next area I am going to tackle is across from this table.  I am not sure why it is bumped in since you really don't have enough room here and it is right next to the door.

This bench is one of the first pieces of new furniture that my parents bought when they were first married.  They got married in 1944 so this bench is 70 years old.  I need to put a new cushion on it and I am thinking about painting it to match the rest of furniture around it.

I need to fix the front and side panels to pretty it up.  My mother always made a cushion that had a ruffle but I think that some molding will look better and tie in with the carvings.

  1. Your table is sooo sweet. I have one question though, where did you find those green jars? I've not seen that color before. Are the new or vintage? I like the way you used the eggs and the vintage lace. Happy Spring!

    1. I bought them at Walmart. They are new jars with the vintage color. I think they brought back this color for this year.

    2. Thanks Jody. They are on my shopping list.

  2. Your table looks beautiful. I love the idea of the window behind hit. Adds another layer of depth to it. Your bench is a beautiful piece of furniture. The possibilities of what you can do with it are endless! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Love the table with that window attached! Great idea! The bench is wonderful! Can't wait to see what you do with it. Thank you for sharing at What We Accomplished Wednesdays. Have a great week! Blessings ~Deborah

  4. What a pretty little vignette you've made, I really like the eucalyptus tucked in here and there, that makes it look really finished.

  5. I thought the window attached to the table was so smart - I would never have thought of that. The bench will be gorgeous when you refinish. Thank you for sharing with the Four Seasons Blog Hop.

  6. This is so very cute, I loved visit your blog; very talented! It seems very cozy! I have always loved white painted furniture but my home is classic dark oak. But I do have a pink and white sewing room ;o)
