Back with a small makeover......................
Small as in a 70's end table that started out like this
I painted it Annie Sloan Graphite
and it looked a little blah to me - I chose NOT to distress it because the veneer on top was in terrible condition ..............and because I was lazy.
I took some of my Modern Masters Pewter paint and made a wash ( I don't measure but I use roughly half and half - paint and water ) and brushed it on to the top - then quickly took a damp rag and rubbed it across the top - creating this
Then I spray painted the handles in a silver finish
I put a finish of polyurethane on it - and there's a very important reason for that.
Again, I was too lazy to wax it..............
2 coats - and one more will be applied before I'm finished - I used a water based - satin finish.
Now as any furniture painted knows - we ALWAYS have an abundance of mirrors.............
Most people prefer to buy dressers without them today - opting instead to hang a mirror on the wall above them - or using them as buffets or changing tables - whatever the reason - I have had quite the stash at times.
I had 2 narrow ones - which were perfect to sit or hang on the wall over an end table ( I love mirrors on either side of the bed - over end tables - ( I love mirrors period - just hate looking in them lately )
Now what could be better then a dark and sultry end table beside a bed?
Two of them of course
These are going to one of my daughters - which means I now have to change out the dresser and headboard she previously took :)
It's a big change from my Paris Grey and white.....................but she's not a Paris Grey and White kinda girl lol - this is definitely more " Lindsay "
Have a great Monday all :)
I'll be partying here this week !
