side table project

4 Sep

Hello peeps,

I wanted to share my side table project with you all. I found these side tables a couple years ago at a yard sale for $30.00. They are really solid pieces and hung out in our living room in their natural state for some time. I don’t think they were hideous…but they were just not very exciting.

This was my second furniture painting project since the coffee table. I am pretty pleased with the outcome. The paint color is  Cornichon (Martha Stewart latex brand) the knobs are from Anthropologie.  I sanded, primed (tinted the primer with paint), and had to do three coats of paint.  Lastly, I coated the tables in two coats of Miniwax Wax Paste. I love this stuff the more I work with it. It gives the furniture such a nice protective sheen.

I’m currently shopping around for modestly priced paint sprayer. I would like to try this method for the kitchen cart that’s next on my list. Also would love to paint/design furniture for other folks if that opportunity came around.

What else, we got a new dog–her name is Zoey! She is a mixed Mastiff–42 lbs of love.  We have a ton of training to do with her. Now that there are two dogs in the house it has been pretty lively.

Oh, more excitement. I will participating in a few local art/craft shows in the Upstate with some friends. Some goods will be available for purchase just in time for the holidays. 🙂 More about that to come–so excited.
