I hope you all had a great weekend! Hubby and I took our youngest and her friend to Arts in the Park, which is a wonderful outdoor festival at Dogwood Dell here in Richmond, Va. They have hundreds of vendors selling original art pieces of all kinds… paintings, photography, pottery, jewelry etc. It was so inspiring to see all of that creativity in one space and it is one of my favorite festivals of the year!
But getting back to work… Ok, these table’s aren’t vintage, but I really liked their shape and the glass fronts. They are the perfect petite size for using just about anywhere!
I painted them a reddish coral color by mixing two Annie Sloan Chalk Paints… 1 part Emperor’s Silk to 3 parts Barcelona Orange.
I very lightly distressed them and sealed them with Annie Sloan clear wax. I removed the knobs and sprayed them with Krylon’s Gold spray.
I contemplated painting the inside, but in the end just left it as is… which of course you cannot see because of the reflection of our patio in the glass
Don’t these little cuties have a great shape to them? They are such a fabulous color now too!
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
What a great color! Don’t you love how Annie’s paints mix up into so many combinations?
Thanks Connie! You know I love mixing the colors!
Great shape, pretty color and how nice to have a pair!
Thanks Sharon, you’re right… it’s rare to find a pair!
These tables are beautiful. I love their shape!
Thanks Susan! I wish they were a little bigger, but they’re still cute?
Oh Susan, what a perfect color!!!
I LOVE the color and it’s amazing how paint can update a piece. I love your blog!
Could you please email me? I have this exact same nightstand and would love to do exactly what you did with it… like, did you sand it down at all? What was your process in getting it looking great again?
I didn’t sand it at all, just cleaned it good with formula 409 before painting it with Annie Sloan paint. If you use that paint you’ll have to seal it with wax or polyurethane. If you use regular paint I would suggest priming it with Bin Zinsser to ensure the color won’t bleed through the new paint.
