This lovely half moon table was refurbished by Faye from Farm Life Best Life with Bee’s Knees and Natural Wax to give it a pretty farmhouse look!

You know that feeling when you discover something that excites you to your core?! That feeling where enthusiasm takes over, and you literally lose your wits?! Well, that’s exactly what happened to me when I found this adorable lil’ half moon table at my local thrift store for a whopping $7!

This piece turned me into such a half wit, that I got so ahead of myself I completely forgot to take a before pic… but here’s the thing — I’m an honest gal, and I couldn’t be more honest in telling you that this lil’ piece might have been the saddest thing I’ve ever stumbled across. 😢

Although given up by someone else, this wobbly legged, beaten up, discarded and forgotten, sad vintage piece, is now once again happy and beautiful. ❤

So how did I transform sad to happy? Well… my enthusiasm certainly made this 6-step process super easy:

Step 1: Tightened up the wobbly legs, and filled the slightly damaged wood
Step 2: Lightly sanded down the entire piece
Step 3: Stained and varnished the top shelf
Step 4: Applied two coats of Country Chic Paint’s “All-in-One Decor Paint” in the colour “Bee’s Knees”
Step 5: Lightly distressed with sanding block
Step 6: Applied Country Chic Paint’s “Natural Wax”

“May the sun bring you new energy by day, may the moon softly restore you by night. May the rain wash away your worries, may the breeze blow new strength into your being. May you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life.”
