Even though this blog looks like my old one, Debbie-Dabble, "Debbie-Dabble Blog" is my new Blog that I created on June 23, 2016, after my old one was hacked through my Debbie-Dabble Face Book Page which I have now deleted!!

I am a Victorian Soul, live in a small townhouse, not a huge Mega Mansion, with my Hubby Joe. I recently went Part Time after working full time night shift as an RN on a Hospital based Rehabilitation( Physical Medicine) Unit for 32 years and have been in nursing for 38 years!

George Eliot was actually a pen name for a woman named Mary Anne Evans......

A Table Transformation

First, I want to Thank my friend, Sandi, over at Rose Chintz Cottage, for featuring my post, Want to See What Joe Bought, as the Most Viewed Post from last week's No Place Like Home Party!!
 Thanks, Sandi!

This is a Brand New Party so please stop by and link up to this lovely party!!
I was driving home one day from work and I saw this table on the side of one of the dumpsters in our development........
When I got home and thought about it, I thought it would be perfect in a little space that I had been planning.......

So I sent Joe back down the hill to scoop it up!!!

It was a little rough around the edges or should I say, the top of it!!
I scraped the peeling veneer off of it......
Joe sanded it down......
Yes, this all happened in the Summer......
I think it was part of a dresser at one time....

Joe applied wood filler to the top......
Sanding it down again.......
Then it was ready to paint......
Please excuse the dark photos but it was a rainy day when I painted it in the Den......

First I applied a coat of Kilz to the table.......
I plan on painting my Bedroom furniture in the Spring and I am still undecided as to how and what colors I will use , so I decided that , for now, I would throw a coat of Antique White paint that I already had on it......
And until I can decide what knobs to use on the drawers, I used these that I had in my stash......
It doesn't look that bad now does it????
In the Summer, when re-arranging rooms, I decided to get rid of a larger table that I had in the corner of our bedroom.....
 Since I am now part time, I want to be able to enjoy a hobby that I had many years ago...


 I wanted to create a little Reading Corner for myself in the Master Bedroom and I needed a table to fit in next to this chair by the window........
 This table fit perfectly!!
I am going to share more about my little Reading Corner in a post next week so for now, I just want to show you the table.......
You can see part of the dresser in this photo and how my Dad painted my Mother's bedroom furniture that was bought for her when she was 16 years old, by her parent's which was 80 years ago.

As I mentioned before, I plan on painting it in the Spring......

Back to the table.....
I think I may leave it antique white and paint the rest of the bedroom furniture the same.......
I am really glad that I sent Joe back down the hill to grab this table that was standing next to one of the dumpsters in our development!!
As I mentioned before, I will share more on this Reading Corner here on my Regular Blog next week........
I hope to post once a week or once every 2 weeks here on my regular blog during the Holiday Season.

I am posting regularly now over on my Christmas Blog, A Debbie-Dabble Christmas!

And you may have noticed the Christmas Tree in the corner......
Soon I will be starting my Christmas Home Tour over on my Christmas Blog,  with this Tree ......
And another one in the Master Bedroom..........
So I hope you will stop by and visit  both my Blogs again!!

 I want to wish my sister, Barb, a very Happy Birthday! Barb was born on my Dad's birthday, who would have been 96 years old today! He always said that Barb was the best gift he ever received on his Birthday! Even though he passed away 28 years ago, not a day goes by that do not think of him. Happy Birthday, Barb and to Dad, up in heaven!!

 Thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!
