I guess I painted this piece the wrong color the first time. Well, maybe not the wrong color but a color that doesn’t fit into every color scheme. That’s the problem with painting your heart. I need to stay with neutral colors like this black.
I have another table from my booth at the shop that I repainted. I’m calling this “ Black Painted Furniture Month ”. I’m hoping by repainting all the furniture in my booth black, it will sell.
The latest redo is the mint green table I painted several months ago. I painted the table a very pale minty green
The patina on the hardware I found in my junk/hardware stash was the same color as the paint on the table….couldn’t beat that…and aren’t they beautiful. I was loving the hardware. Now for the paint. I found a can of Rustoleum paint in Metallic Aged Copper on my paint shelves. So that’s what I went with. I painted the top with the metallic paint but wasn’t happy with that so I painted the legs…..dipped look. The top needed something to pull everything together so I stenciled a design using the minty green paint. But this piece is the wrong color for most of my customers.
I used Reclaim Beyond Paint in Licorice and then distressed the black so a little of the green shows through.
This finish is so easy, takes no time at all to paint and distress furniture. Most people think it’s a lengthy time consuming process, but it’s not.
This photo doesn’t show it but the nice curved drawer fronts are featured in the first photo.
I had to share this photo. When I was editing the photos for the post this one definitely caught my eye. I didn’t photoshop the missing leg out. It’s just the angle of the shot that makes the table appear 3 legged. I could probably never get the same angle again if I tried. This shot was by accident. I told the JTS I was sitting at the computer looking at the photo moving my head trying to see behind the front leg of the table. I’m a little nutty at times. But hey, I know the leg is back there. It’s okay, you can laugh along with the JTS.
Have a great day!
