I've been excited to paint this table for about a year, but I just never took the time to work on THIS project. Anyway, I got motivated and spent way too much time fretting over paint colors. I literally had swatches from every local store and just about every different brand. I finally settled on a color and just bought cheapo Walmart paint.
I got her all primed and painted and I hated it. The paint was dry, but I could peel it off - and the color I'd fretted over just wasn't right. Anyway, I sanded it all off and started over. That didn't really take a long time. It took almost as long to dust my house afterward. LOL
I skipped the primer the second time and I didn't spend a lot on the paint, but I didn't want to buy another quart when I had SO MUCH leftover from the first round. I figured I'd play around with adding acrylic paint to get the shade I wanted and figured that if I totally screwed up the paint I could just buy more. It actually worked perfectly! I poured some paint in a plastic cup and then added acrylic paints until I got the shade I wanted.
Once the paint was dry, I sanded her up and distressed her. Oh, I also replaced the knob and I go back and forth on it- love it/hate it. Give me ten minutes and I'll change my mind twice. For now it's staying 'cause I love it half the time. LOL
Now I can't decide how to decorate the top. I've searched tablescape ideas and nothing has sparked for me yet. Any suggestions?
The color changes a little as the lighting changes and it looks so great in every light. I'm glad that I finally felt motivated to tackle this little project. Now I'm kinda in the mood to paint other little pieces of furniture.
