Too many small tables, never!
Voila, the round table I painted this week. I loved it so much I almost kept it here in my living room, but knew DH might trip over it and groan about too much furniture in a smallish room! I found it at a local consignment shop, in nice condition but wearing a horrid golden color stain. Of course I forgot to take a before pic, I was in such a mad dash to start on its makeover! I primed, then sprayed two coats of Heritage White (Rustoleum's double coat gives great coverage - available at Home Depot). I distressed lightly and it was done.............quite Swedish looking, perfect for any corner, at the end of a sofa, beside a bed, or even in a bathroom. Don't you just love little tables?
Placed the table in my booth at SuzAnna's Antiques yesterday................I hope someone will want to take it home to brighten up a corner in their home in time for Spring.
Marisa, if you happen to read this, remember to call me if you need some painting pointers for that dining room furniture you told me about. It was fun meeting you yesterday, I always love talking with SuzAnna's customers, especially those interested in making over their furniture. Of course chatting about Africa was an extra treat...........so glad you too got to visit that amazing country. Now go start painting that brown furniture girl!!!!!
