Metamorphosis Monday - Porch Table

Susan at Between Naps on the Porch hosts Metamorphosis Monday. I got a new table for my back porch. Click on the link to see how other bloggers have changed something.


This was my before. I just used a TV tray table.




I found this table at the thrift store. I never did take a before picture of it. It was very scratch and marked up. I knew I wanted to paint it. I was torn between off white or black, but ended up painting it yellow spray paint so I thought I would try that. Not too bad.

I added a basket of magazines and simple games. My grandsons, who think all games have a joystick, spent an entire afternoon playing Pick Up Sticks, marbles and dominoes.

Oh wow, that three-legged table is so pretty and it suit that space so well. On the practical side, it's also safer minus an extra leg on the way.

Good idea! Thank you for sharing!

further to the comment you left on my blog--VERY SMART!! By the way you just need a couple coffee tables books to prop up that little adorable light (okay that's enough tablescaping without being asked )
Thanks for visiting my blog!

Good job and a cute table. The butter yellow paint is pretty.

Checking in on a borrowed computer. I had to use Adelaide's laptop because I don't get mine till next week. I wanted to stop by and say, "Hi" to you, Karen. Have really missed blogging...

XO,
