It’s Themed Furniture Day.
Can you feel the excitement?
Our theme for this month is Two-Tone Furniture makeovers.
I can’t wait to see the paint combinations my friends came up with.
Metallic Copper and Mint Green
The table was one of my Nashville Flea Market finds.
I got it along with two more tables for $40.
A pretty good deal.
Is it okay if I whine?
I knew you wouldn’t mind.
This project started out as any other.
I decide on a plan and then put it together.
Then, as happens quite often lately…I changed plans.
I painted the table a very pale minty green and then painted the details like the top front above the drawers white.
Not enough contrast.
I then painted a pale brown over the white.
Still yucky looking.
I painted over all of that with the mint green and painted the top a bright red…not looking good either. then I just got irritated and started dry-brushing green paint over the red.
I want tell you what happened after that.
It wasn’t pretty.
Another thing I did was paint the original hardware white.
Then I started thinking that dark hardware would look better.
See these beauties I found in my stash.
The patina was the same color as the paint on the table….couldn’t beat that…and aren’t they beautiful.
I changed out one of the little handle pull thingies and added it to one of the pulls with more patina.
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.
And finally was happy.
Now see what my talented friends have been up to…links below.
Have a great day, Kathy
