Clouds in My Coffee…

Ok… so the title of this post may not make sense now but it will… I think Winking smile

Here is this super cute (not really) typical Queen Anne style cherry sofa table. It was in good structural shape but had been banged up a little, scratches here and there and a couple of small dents on the top…

BEFORE (I know super shot there Susan, love all those shoes!)

Here she is in all of her “After’ glory! I think she looks stunning now and anything but boring and typical! I think she looks HOT!!

I filled in and sanded down the scratches and dents and then primed the piece with grey primer which gave this table a new smooth scratch and dent free finish!

I painted her in a custom mix of ASCP Barcelona & Emperor’s Red… not the same mix I have used on a couple of other recent pieces but similar. It is such a beautiful Coral color! I also added this gold accent stripe to give her a little bling… I just love the combination of Coral & Gold!

I lightly distressed the table (including the gold stripe) so some of the base color peeks through. I then waxed it with Minwax paste wax and buffed it… it feels so silky!

Here is the reason for the “clouds in my coffee title”… yes I KNOW there is no coffee, but the reflection of the sky is pretty cool in this beautiful silver piece I just picked up!

Anyway… I’m trying to step out of my comfort zone a little and paint with some colors other than blue and green (which are my favorites)… but I was reminded that not everyone can use those colors…

So what do you think… are you liking the coral or what?

Thanks for stopping by… and as always I love reading your comments!

Until next time!

    1. Krista,
      I normally don’t prime when I use ASCP, but in this case I have lots of areas that I had to sand down and fill and I knew I was going to distress the piece and didn’t want those areas to show through bare… I really only spray primed the top and a leg where most of the damage was… thanks for the question!
