Can you REDO a REDO??

 The Nester says, " It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful"

 {and I say}

"If you don't succeed the first time, try, try again. If still you don't succeed, nuts to it!"  LOL ;)
this is not my original quote just one that came to mind:)

{ the beginning }

what started out being my {inspiration} the book that is...sanding table...laying out letters

RE-sanding over painted on letters...
{ this is why you will still see all of the dust under my dining table in the finished! }

I painted the legs Heirloom White that I had Home Depot mix in latex paint...instead of a spray can...{ I am not good at spray painting....sorry blogland:)
I painted the edges of the table in this color that I found on {Cowboy} Phraseology...she painted her sweet new baby girls bed this color..I loved it.

{ Behr Cloud Burst }

I didn't like the words...I know...I am sad about that:(
So the table lived there in a state of anonymity for almost a week.

 Nikki ROLLED her eyes...I know Nikki...I saw it :)
It came to me...Mod Podge!!  For a genetically dysfunctional crafter like myself
Mod Podge is like chocolate when your are PMSing..REALLY!

I had some sheet music from ... yes a thrift store... so I laid it out randomly
and Mod Podged to my little hearts content.

I glazed over the whole table and then gave it a good coat of MP

Just a few pictures form different angles
yesterday we took down the bambooish blinds { they are nice in summer to keep the heat out though }
and immediate happiness filled the area...yeah!

{The picture below shows the blinds}

{ Phase I of Eat in Kitchen }

 {my favorite part of this picture collage?  BLESS THIS HOUSE }

The pictures above are without the blinds... can see how much " happier" it is?
I am playing with some chair decor...I am going to tie on fabric just not sure what " kind " of fabric yet.  I used some muslin I had just to see what it would look like.  I am leaving it there for awhile to get a feel for it first.

This is PHASE I of the Eat In Kitchen....whew! 

Now for the painting of the walls....I DON'T think I will be stenciling any letters anytime soon...LOL!

Wink Wink ;) ;)  I DO have a couple of FUN things I am going to try though...go ahead...roll them eyes!!  Ain't nothin a little REDO won't fix..

DOES anyone have any REDO stories of their own to share??

Gabrielle said...

LOVE vintage sheet music! LOVE your table! :)

kluless said...

This is an INSPIRED project. I love the way it turned out. The original table had a kind of corporate meeting room vibe to it and in the end you achieved relaxed and cozy. Quite a vision and transformation. Bravo!

Courtney ~ French Country Cottage said...

Anne said...

Oh my goodness, I LOVE that!! How is it to clean the mod podge?

Tammy at Tattered and Timeless said...

Love the table. And yes I have done re-do's many times. Glad you had to do a redo or we would not have seen this beautiful table.

Finding Home said...

Really nicely done, liked the Eat, Pray, Love concept, but the sheet music with the blue paint is much better!

Debra@Common Ground said...

Hi Tiffini, so glad you linked up to VIF! Great table and I love the color choices. The sheet music is a wonderful idea, but I would have loved the stenciled letters too! Have a great weekend!

Michaela said...

This is amazing. What a wonderful idea. I love music and this is such a great way to make a room feel vintage, chic and classic. Great color around the outer edge, too!

this blessed nest said...

Erika Ann~ said...

This is beautiful!!

A Cottage Muse said...

Love, love, love it!!! I am in the process of adding sheet music to old doors for walls in my booth...can't wait to get working now!!

Suzanne@thriftstoredecorjunky said...

I love the table. Love the colors, the sheet music...even loved the stencille letters.
But I know what you mean, I did a coffee table and stencilled lettrs on the top, and the picture as a whole was just not right, so I redid it, too.
Great job, anyway!

Blue Creek Home said...

Some of my worst mistakes ("happy accidents") have ended up being my greatest projects!!!
I love how your table looks...the color, the sheet music...everything!!!

Allison Shops said...

The sheet music looks great. I like the border around the edge. Nice job!


Shari @ My Cottage of Bliss said...

You had me at the mention of "Cloud Burst." Love that color! The exterior of my house is painted Cloud Burst with white trim.

Great makeover. Your dining area looks so happy now! :)

Jenny @ Simcoe Street said...

This is so inspirational!
Thanks for sharing - I LOVE this!

SavannahGranny said...

Such a neat redux redo. In the first photo this looks like a draw-leaf table. Do they drop underneath and did you paint them also. I was wondering how they held up. Like the music better than the words. The music is timeless. Love the colors.
I am a new follower, hope you can follow me back.
Ginger said...

I love it....the colors, the paper, everything. I would love if you would come link up to my first before and after party. I'm having a great giveaway!

Deanna said...

You should send a picture to Amy at mod podge rocks @ . I love this table and love vintage sheet music and love mod podge and now your blog!! I too recently purchased vintage sheet music from local thrift store. I like your "borrowed" quote too. Thank you so much for sharing.

Remodelaholic said...

I love it! My dining room table is starting to look a little rough, and this gives me new ideas! Thanks so much for the inspiration!!! Love that the sheet music has been written on, too!

pammyjo said...

Love love love this! (I see I'm not the first to love this x 3!) I have a table that I will do this treatment to, as soon as the craft junk gets cleared off of it! Thanks for the inspiration and a new blog to follow.

Pine Tree Home said...

I really like the color combo. I have an old wood table in my kitchen and would love to paint the table like yours.
