More Summer Decor and a DIY Paint Makeover
Do you know how hard it is not to type… “If you build it…”?
Jim and I made these great console style tables for our last show, and I accidentally kept one.
The natural wood patina is just loverly. It’s aged & weathered. Practically perfect!
It really is… but I was wanting a lil’ freshness for the Summer season.
So lucky me, I just ran my booty down to the shop and got another.
Everlasting is a pretty, fresh white. Ahh white. Goes with everything. And a personal go-to favorite.
(See basically every other painted piece in my entire house.)
Hey, it works. I can move anything, anywhere, and it matches!
While my table isn’t fine furniture, the chalky finish paint worked like a charm. It’s fast. You don’t have to pre-prime. (or sand if you’ve got a pre painted piece) and that makes it easy to use. Plus, no smell. The coverage was good and I know for many people, it’s convenient to be able to grab at a major retailer. It’s carried at stores like Home Depot, Hobby Lobby, JoAnn and Micheal’s.
Alas… I can’t keep two.
Not even on accident.
Even though you’re seeing it temporarily tucked against the wall there, I’ll have to choose natural or painted?
Oh. I got really crazy and added Primitive as an accent on the legs.
I know. WOW!
It’s like an episode of Color Splash with David Bromstad.
While you are hear, I just have to tell you.
It is so fun to share projects, decorate, take pictures… and create little vignettes. I just stinking love it!! And I am SO glad and appreciative that you care, and come by to see what trouble I’m getting into. I mean that with my whole heart!!
So what do you think? Painted or Au Natural?
Or should I ask Moby?
Nah… I’m sure he’d pick some sort of blue.
