Remember this table from last week? You can read about the transformation process here: https://missmustardseed.com/2009/09/this-table-deserves-better/ I finally finished it yesterday! This poor little table had a horrible paint job that did not do it justice and this is what it looks like now. (And in case you’re wondering…no, I do not paint everything in blues & aquas! I’ll post some other colors soon.)
“This Table Deserves Better” Reveal!
I painted it in ProClassic Semigloss paint in Frost from Sherwin Williams and then added some decorative painting to highlight the details of the table. This is a great example of how decorative painting does not have to be complicated. Even if you’re not an “artist” you can do this! I used one color (Victorian Teal by Delta) and kept it simple. After the decorative painting, I mixed a small amount of paint with some MinWax water based Polycrylic to make a glaze. I then rubbed the glaze on all of the table except the top. This gave the table a slight bluish cast, almost like faded paint.
