In recognition of Throwback Thursday, the following is a reprint of a previously published post. Enjoy!
Once upon a time there was a lovely princess. (For the sake of the story, we’re going to call her “Katy.”) Princess Katy was the proud owner of a table. You might have called it a console table, or even a desk, but for the princess, it was a bedside table. Sadly, this table had no finish on it, which meant that when the young princes drew all over the side of the table, her ladies in waiting were unable to remove the offending ink marks.
So the sweet middle aged princess threw a vintage tablecloth over the table and went on with her royal duties of picking out hats and posing for pictures with ill children.
But then, the Princess Katy got cable TV and watched a large amount of HGTV. She was full of inspiration and decided to refinish the table. With a sander borrowed from the hunky middle-aged Prince Dale, she set to work.
Armed with wood stain from the Queen Mum and oil finish from her own basement, the princess set to work. Although the hands-on time was minimal it took quite awhile, as her royal duties were numerous.
When the oil finish finally dried, the princess placed diamond knobs on the drawer, which she had garbage picked off an abandoned vanity.
The Princess Katy was very pleased with her bedside table, and felt she could finally focus her attention on important royal matters such as shenanigans with the stable boy and pleasing the Queen Mum.
Which is how it should be.
