Check out that detailing! I love ornate details in furniture and decor....not sure if that is in style but it is what I love. You can tell if from the picture frames that I buy. This was Craigslist buy, $10 I think. I caught my mom mid painting and grabbed a quick before shot.
|We decided to paint it inside and out.|
Notice that peek of orange table, the peeling paint, the ornate detailing that I love? I mentioned this before as a future project. I also mentioned trying paper mosaic on a previous project. My plan is to cover that pitiful edge with a paper mosaic effect. Just a little tease. Anyway, off topic....back to this lovely little piece.
|It wasn't until after she had completely primed it out that I mentioned that I wanted to try out DIY chalk painting it.....and it doesn't require priming. Oops!|
This was Oops paint, isn't that an awesome color? I always check the Oops paint when I hit the hardware store. $5 for a gallon, $2.50 for a quart, how can you lose? For the DIY chalk paint, we just added non-sanded grout and a little water. The table came with those little glass panes to protect the ornate detailing and give a flat surface. We put a couple coats of poly on it to protect it from the munchkins.
I'm very happy with it!
