Early in the fall I purchased a table at my secret auction for a mere $7. It had bottom shelf (Mr.Dickey loves himself a shelf) and WHEELS!
As with everything in my garage it sat. I had no idea what to do with this table. No inspiration whatsoever. The top had two tones of wood in a geometric pattern. It also had a funky border (darn it, I forgot before pictures). The shelf was caned...sort of and wasn't in the greatest shape.
I didn't think a shabby chic paint job would look good on this piece because the shape was a bit more modern. I was stumped. The only thing I did know was the "cane like" shelf had to be painted. Enter Martha Stewart silver paint. I have used a lot of metallic paint in my thirty-eight-years and this is top notch in my book. It covers well and I don't have to paint a million coats on.
After the silver went on the table began to talk to me. It told me to tape the top following the lines already there.
I did exactly what it told me to and it turned out perfectly. I am debating on whether or not I will sell this piece. Mr.Dickey isn't a fan of furniture change. At this point my plan is to bring the table in under the guise of talking pictures of it in order to sell it. I may list it, or may not...it depends on what it tells me to do.
As you can see I didn't get Mr.Dickey to move it inside for a photo shoot. It is hard to stage a table in the
