Thanks Dad!

Since I was gone over Father's Day, I thought it might be nice to give a little shout-out to my dad.  And I just happen to have a recent project to show off that Dad helped with:



I'm not sure if he understood my vision ("You want to do what?"), but Dad cheerfully agreed to saw my little table in half.  I'm sure it was all because of his fatherly love and support and had absolutely nothing to do with his love of power tools.  Right???  

He removed the table base.....
  
.....and then sawed the top in two.....
.....we attached brackets.......
.......painted and mounted the tables......and viola!
(I also painted the brackets the wall color so they would blend  in better.) 

Thanks Dad!  And happy Father's Day!!!

SO CUTE! I have a bunch of little tables like that one. I may have to cart one out to my table saw.

The tables and the plates are adorable. I love, love, love the paint color in your entry. Maybe you've already mentioned it in another post and I missed it, but I'd love to know the name of the color.

thanks!

Britt said... Best Blogger Tips

Thanks everyone! The color is "Granite Dust" by Valspar (color-matched to Behr paint). It is in our dining room, living room and foyer. I absolutely love it and would definitely recommend it!

Wow this looks great!! You are brave! Is that table one of those with the lion feet? I just found one, I'm not into lion or their feet or lion draw pulls so I will be changing it and painting it! What is this area of your house??

Britt said... Best Blogger Tips

Holly, it did have lion-type feet. I'd love to see what you do with your table.
This is our foyer, right next to our dining room and living room.
Thanks for stopping by!
