Shabby Sophistication

Not Too Shabby
 by Lynn Amason

I recently got to help out a sweet young lady who needed an update on her dining room table.  She has recently graduated from college (her parents say “YAY”) and landed that dream job all recent graduates want.  She is on a budget just starting out so being able to use some things she had from college was important.

It has good bones and was just the size she needed for her new apartment, but it was tired…tired of being a college girl table.

Time to get some sophistication for a new phase of life!

A little shabby recreation with some paint and distressing turns this college “girl” into a great table for new adventures of a working girl in the big city.  She is ready for some take out diners when it has been a long day and is grown up enough to be center of attention at a nice dinner party for new friends!
 I was honored to help Melissa start off her new career, which by the way is as a RN at Children’s Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama…with some “Shabby Sophistication”.

Remember, everyone could use a little “Shabby Sophistication”!

Lynn Amason loves to create treasures from other people’s “trash.” You can find her scouting for deals or repurposing her finds. You can see her treasures at Parker House Antiques.
