The Beginning of The Little Blue Table

I'm Tiffany, and I paint, fix, and rehab furniture! That little dog giving you the side-eye is Kenny.  

This is Frito.

You should know these guys.  They're an integral part of The Little Blue Table.  Also an integral part of The Little Blue Table?  THIS GUY.

That's the Boyfriend, and he's always gracious enough to keep the truck running while I jump out and pick up furniture off the side of the road.  And he almost never drives off.  And he's always optimistic when I drag a broken table home.  He talks a lot about "potential" and "clean lines" and "maybe we can use that one for fire wood."

Taking on a new house and Kenny, in January of 2013 I decided I didn't have enough on my plate and needed a new project.  The Christmas decorations had been put away, so NOW what would I do with my time besides run a surgical organization full time, take care of two dogs, a boyfriend and a house?

I'm incapable of sitting still.

Then I found The Little Blue Table which was actually a sad little green table rescued from the trash.  

 A $2 quart of clearance paint from the local hardware store was tasked with making this little table shine once again.

With a little TLC and a lot of patience, the Little Blue Table was born. The piece was sold within days of completion, but it will forever live on in every piece I create.
