Picking the Perfect Table & an Old House Discovery

Picking the Perfect Table & an Old House Discovery

I’m in the middle of renovating an older home- yay!


Well, sort of.


I bought the home in November and my father has been diligently working on the electrical items since.


Now we’re on the items that I can actually help with! But let me backtrack just a tad. You’ve likely seen my Facebook live videos with Andrew Eck for Georgia Artisan. He and I spoke again recently about how to use their website to order custom furniture items:

Pretty nifty, right?


Well as I am renovating this home I know I want one of his tables. If you watched that video you’ll see I floundered a bit on what exactly I wanted. I initially thought I wanted one with a dark stain.


After this weekend I think I need to go with a lighter stain- look at what I discovered under the carpets!!!






This was in the foyer. So I went on to the dining room, which is where my glorious Georgia Artisan table will go.



Not only did I discover more beautiful floors, but my boyfriend thought to go ahead and take the tiles off of the fireplace.






Also at that time I had picked up paint samples, and these are what I was looking at:

See how well they would go with the original tiles?! I’d do the Blue Peacock on the walls and the North Star on the wainscoting. I may even add a gold stenciling on an accent wall.




I’m super excited to see how it all comes together!!!



What kind of Georgia Artisan table should I get to go with my newly discovered floors, beautiful green fireplace tiles, and Blue Peacock walls?!


Tell me your favorite table and I’ll enter you to win a set of Southern Bon Vivant candles! Go here to pick your designs, then post your favorites in the comments: .
