Coffee table with vintage blue attitude!

Hello Everyone,

Just finished painting a cute end table for my customer's living room, see below.  She wanted it painted fresh and in a fun color.

I've selected some photos of rooms from BHG as inspiration for the color that I would paint the table.

Steps I followed:

  • Wash and sand
  • 1st coat = 1 cup of light grey latex paint + (2 tablespoons Paris Plaster + 2 tablespoons of water mix together, then add to the grey paint ), mix very well.  
  • 2nd coat, same procedure as above but with a different color, in this case a darker teal blue
  • Top finish with dry brush stroke in a light teal blue.
  • Let dry overnight.
  • Distress by sanding lightly....try to get all coats to peak trough in different spots from top to buttom.
Hope this will inspire you to try a paint project of your own!  Don't hesitate if you have questions it will be a pleasure to assist you.Thanks for stopping by and have a great one! Suzanne
