Antique Mall Table

Before
I came across this cute table recently at a local antique mall. The price was $16 and it was in good condition. I loved the lines of this table and the tall height would make it a great bedside table in my Other Guest Bedroom that you can see here.

I saw the potential in this as a painted piece. So I sanded and primed it. I painted it with two coats of white latex paint. Then the fun part...I sponged on blue and white across the top. I wanted this part very subtle and barely have the blue noticeable. I painted black stripes on the skirting and black silhouettes of branches and birds on the top, all freehand. There is a small blue design that I painted on the lower triangle part. You can click on each picture to enlarge. Then click again and the picture will get even larger so you can see the detail. Use your back button to get back to my blog. Terry

  1. What a transformation. Like how you added the stripes on the skirting and the birds really add character. Did you paint the birds free hand?

    Take care,
    Michelle
