Table talk

You remember my glorious goodwill goodie-
the coffee table with the beautiful carved legs and detailed molding-
the table that cost me a cool $14.99!

ahhh, now you remember...

Well, I got many suggestions from all of you-
paint it black
paint it white
paint it a shock of color
mosaic the top
mirror the top
but the majority of you said to keep it just the way it was-
ummm
you know I can't do that...........lol
and you know how much I am loving my new bff Behr's heavy cream
I couldn't help myself
So, I did it
I painted it heavy cream
and then I antiqued it with a faux antiquing glaze
by American Tradition,
 I had hanging around for a few years!!!

I really love the antiqued look-
it fits in well with the decor
and its legs are to die for!!!

Well, take care, gotta fly-Claire

  9. I love it the creamy white, Claire! It shows off the detailing beautifully. I love Heirloom White paint {this looks similar} and I'm sure that would have been my "go to" paint.

  53. Claire, your new coffee table is incredible. Just stunning. I knew that even though the color was blah before, the shape and those legs would look incredible after some paint. You did a great job girl.

    I loved it so much I FEATURED you, I know I'm late letting you know, but I hope it still puts a smile on your face.

    Come grab a button girl, and display it proudly!
