The most Charming Dessert table

Have you ever felt overwhelmed with all the ideas and projects you could do via social media? Of course we have all been there! Pinterest and Instagram to name a few are incredible sources for the DIY enthusiast in all of us. I have so many ideas rolling around in my head and that is the great part. The not so great part is that we often stop there and don't take any action toward actually doing the project. You know how good it feels when you follow through with making something that inspired you. My daughter in law had a vision for what she wanted her dessert bar to look like, we had a visual from Pinterest and it all came together so beautifully. Here it is in all its glory... I had bought this table from Goodwill a few years back. It had a pretty shape and curved legs, I painted it with Annie Sloan Old white and distressed it a bit. The ladder I found on the sidewalk, it was sitting there with a sign on it that said "take me I'm free" Ok done:)  It was a ladder to a bunk bed haha!
Water cans are from Ikea and greenery from the Florist my DIL used for her Wedding.  We had fun putting this together and my Son hung it up for us. We told him that he had better make it very secure, it would be really bad if it came crashing down on all the lovely Desserts they had for the Wedding. Note to the future remember to remove all tickets and tags, even if they are on the bottom of the watering cans...

Wedding DIY Projects

My Son and new daughter in law recently got married in June. We were the Venue so I had lots of fun projects to do. I found this old trunk at a garage sale and knew I would do something with it for the Wedding. I have a wrap around porch that I was trying to set up many sitting areas. I was in need of some cute tables so I decided to turn this old trunk into a side table by adding legs. For fun I added my address. It turned out so cute!
I wanted to set up a Coffee Bar on my porch so guest could help themselves anytime. I shopped my home and found this vintage dresser that I had painted a few years ago. It looked perfectly happy sitting out there on my porch serving up coffee and cookies. My DIL painted this Coffee Bar sign for me. She is so talented:)
