In the last few weeks I have been a painting fool. I was gearing up for my trunk show and I could not paint fast enough. Last Friday my local Salvation Army was having a half-off sale. Being a glutton for punishment I went with my truck and left with four tables, an old baby crib, and a few smaller items. More tables. Seriously right now I have seven hanging out in my garage. Here are two of them:
This one is SOLID oak and is heavy. I am not a fan of oak right now. Maybe because I have oak floors, oak doors and oak cabinets and I just get tired of it. The brass on the glass also made this piece a bit dated. I think my boyfriend in high school had this table in his parent's living room. Mmmm...
I painted it with Sherwin Williams Beyond Blue and Westinghouse White. I added my secret ingredients to the paint of course. I top coated it with poly. Doesn't it scream beach house to you? Wish I had one to put it in.
This little lady was a lot of fun. I originally thought about doing a ruler table with her, but after time began to tick away I scaled back. I painted it with Sherwin Williams Mink and put chalkboard paint on top. I can imagine someone writing messages on top. If it were mine I would write, "Drexler brush your teeth" or "Delia did you brush your hair today?".
It has Annie Sloan Dark Wax on top. I really like the curves of this one.
My other five tables are still waiting in the garage for some attention. I am taking a little break from painting this weekend. My hand was starting to hurt!
