Little tables = love for me! I have had this little beauty for a long time but didn't know quite what to do to it until now. My daughter will be moving into her own apartment and her THEME color is turquoise! I finally knew just I wanted to do...now to make it happen was another thing!
I started off by sanding the whole table and wiping it down with a clean cloth. I put some of the turquoise paint in a tray and added a little water to make it more like a wash. I started wiping the wash on the back (just in case I didn't like it) and when I LOVED it I began wiping it all over in the direction of the woodgrain. As quickly as I wiped it on...I wiped it off with a dry rag. I found I had to work fast because it dried to dark. After it dried I wiped on a small amount of brown antiquing glaze all over and wiped the excess off.
I love the finished product...it turned out just like I imagined! Now all it needs is a cute knob and it's ready to find it's new home in my daughter's new HOME....!
Linking to Redoux!
