It must be Summertime because I seem to be in a white and yellow mood...There is something about that combination that is so fresh, clean and warm...Just like a northwest summer. :)
Anyway my last two pieces of furniture I painted in that combination...but they were both just asking for it...
Today I'm going to share the side Table I picked up after a Volleyball camp...
I drop my girl off and then went shopping...what fun!!
So this is how it started out...kind of beat up with a reddish stain...but I loved its lines...the criss-cross on the sides, the detail around the edges...It had potential!!
I gave it a quick sanding, grabbed my homemade chalk paint and got started...
It took 3 coats of paint and some sanding in between to cover up the original finish, but it was soooo worth it!!
I used my a sander to "Shabby it Up" and then waxed it with my own little recipe...It's a combination of clear wax and Briwax in Golden Oak...I don't tend to use dark waxes...I like my colors clear and clean.
Lastly...I just had to share this lovely shadow that was on my side table when I went out to take pictures...It made me smile.
Will be linking to many of the parties on my side bar...do check them out. :)
