A friend was visiting from out of the country and did not remember my polk-a-dot table from our old house. She said, “You need to put that on your blog!” I had never thought about it and forgot again until I read about The CSI Project. It’s a group blog by three amazingly creative bloggers who post a creative challenge weekly. The judges are other amazingly creative bloggers. The first week’s challenge is paint.
So that’s where the polk-a-dot table comes in! I needed a narrow table for a hallway. We had bought a barrel (literally) of painted wooden table legs years ago. My husband and I went through our wood stash that came out of or with our house built in 1935. We found some old white clapboard and some narrow boards that had gotten spray painted behind some peg board. Did you know that makes polk-a-dots? These and some lime green narrow trim combined to make a fun eclectic table for our hall. Now it resides in our living room:
We’ve been on the look out for peg board here in Portugal and haven’t found any yet! I’d like to recreate the dotted look on future furniture re-do’s. My wonderful husband is ready to make our own peg board! Someone want to ship some over so he doesn’t have to do that?
Looking forward to other paint ideas at CSI!
