Metallic end table makeovers!

Good morning everyone !

Last week we picked up ( or were given I should say ) these really pretty end tables when we purchased a
head and foot board.

I was overwhelmed with this girl's generosity - and we needed a couple of these badly for our bedroom!

They were in excellent shape - but the wood just wasn't for me

I primed them before painting them ( this is not like Chalk Paint - you really have to prime first )

 and got out my Modern Masters ( ME 150 Silver )  and went to town

end table makeover - metallic silver

Pretty lines but just a little boring, no?

I remembered I still had these from Michaels ( purchased these a long time ago to embellish a door
Door with Annie Sloan's signature
They're meant for scrapbooking I suppose but make really cute furniture appliques !

And the great thing is that they have adhesive on the back - so you can try them out before adding them permanently!

Yep, these will be staying permanently - just the right little touch don't you think?

DIY metallic furniture

I'll be putting a couple of coats of water based polyurethane on tomorrow because this paint definitely needs it - but I just love their metallic colors!

DIY end table makeover

Since the tables were free - and I had the paint and the appliques - this was a cost free project

Here you can see why I needed SMALL endtables for either side of the bed - and sorry but I can't make the bed today - it's too hot to even contemplate doing it lol
I have to pick up a couple of lamps - these look a little ridiculous - still trying to find the perfect wall sconce with swing arm lamps.

By the light....................of the silvery moon ( which reminds me - I went skinny dipping at midnight a couple of nights ago )  Probably won't ever do it again - but it was soooooooooo hot and really I just went out to sit and try to cool off a little - and there sat this glistening pool - and so I kind of slinked out of my nightie and quickly slinked into the pool.
And did a few laps - by the light.............of the silvery moon ( quite literally )

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone - and a very happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canadians

I'm extremely proud and very grateful to have been MADE IN CANADA !!!
Much love,

I'll be at these parties !
