Well, I’m down to my last piece of furniture from the Methodist Church rummage sale. If you recall, I drove to Brevard, NC at 6:30 in the morning on a Friday (because I’m nuts!!!) in November to this annual event. Historically, it had been a HUGE score for me. Well, as huge of a score as would fit in my Jeep anyway.
I liked the lines immediately !
The style is strange to me so I did some googling and apparently, it’s a thing. Some Louis XVI round Regency something or other.
Who knew ?
But, like most of the pieces I drag home, it needed some work.
I took eleven days off from my day job over Christmas and New Years and on day one I got the itch to paint.
I know. BIG shock!
So I carried this table in to my kitchen, picked my poison (in terms of paint) and went to town!
Oh, Duck Egg.
You make my heart sing!
The first Annie Sloan Chalk Paint color I ever saw in my life and the first one I actually purchased was Duck Egg. It was truly love at first sight! Now having said that, Old White was the first one I actually used. The Duck Egg truthfully, sat on my kitchen counter for three months before I ever cracked the lid open.
I could not tell you.
Now that it’s finished, I can not imagine this little $6 table in any other color.
Yep. I said $6.
I love this little table!
I think it would be a perfect, petite coffee table in front of a smaller couch like my Ikea loveseat. Or sitting between a pair of wingbacks.
The knob is one I already had in my stash. I had a Porcelain one on it to begin with but visually it’s was just too heavy. This one is a little wooden melon knob and it works well.
I did go a tiny bit crazy with the sandpaper. I usually just do a little linear distressing and call it a day.
Oh! See these sweet little china tea cups and saucers?
I found these little dolls at the Goodwill. $1 each for both the cup & saucer! Needless to say I grabbed all they had.
Two more for the road.
Thanks for stopping by !
Happy New Year,
Blogs I love!
