See those pretty legs!!! That's why I bought this little coffee table. I have no before pictures, but it really didn't look very special. But, I knew, with legs like that, she'd definitely turn some heads if she put on a little makeup.........or had a little makeover. 8-)
So, after a quick sanding, I painted her with a basic white satin paint. Then, trimmed her with my favorite cottage green. After drying, she still needed a little something extra. The details just didn't shine yet. Since I had no gray stain, I took a dab of black acrylic craft paint, thinned it with water, then brushed it over the table..........a small section at a time. After brushing on, I almost immediately wiped it away with a soft paper towel, leaving it in the recessed areas. See how it makes the detail POP???
THEN, for the final step, I took her up to Lawrenceburg Glass to get a glass top cut. And, now she has the perfect place to display some of your favorite keepsakes and pictures. This one showcases pictures of my family and special linens. Of course, when she sold, I kept all those special items. I just used them to give my customers ideas as to how to display their own special goodies.
Isn't is amazing what a little paint and lipstick can do to make a girl look brand new???
What cha think?
All Ya'll Come Back to See Me Soon. 8-)
