Who doesn’t need an extra side table added to their home decor? When I came across this lonely little table, I knew I could give it a fresh new look that would be a great home accent next to a reading chair, or as a side table by a bed.
The biggest challenge I had with this piece was deciding what color I should paint it. With such deliberation, I consulted Pinterest and found this side table painted in a blue/green color. This color is not one that is in my home color pallet, so it will be a new experience. Also, I knew if I chose a color in the blue family , I would not keep it. (I’m trying to be more willing of letting go of my pieces that I don’t absolutely need.)
I was wanting the chippy-look so I only sanded the two flat surfaces of the board. I then brushed on Miss Mustard Seed Paint in Kitchen Scale to the piece. This color is more of a blue/gray color. After two coats, I could so see the paint starting to chip on the legs and edges of the top. Love it!! I gave it a light sanding to help with the paint to chip and flake off and also to give the flat surfaces a smooth finish.
I finished it up with a clear wax and buffed it out. It turned out exactly the way I envisioned it. I just love what paint can do to freshen up a piece. Happy with this transformation! What are you working on? Please share your awesome transformation with me. Let’s inspire each other.
