I’m excited to finally be sharing a piece of painted furniture with you. I painted this console table before Christmas. It seems like a whirlwind now but at the time I couldn’t believe 4 pieces of furniture sold between Thanksgiving and Christmas. It was definitely a blessing and I really had to scramble to find new pieces not to mention get them booth ready before I took a holiday break.
I was looking for something that I would flip quickly which meant it had to be in perfect, paint ready condition. I usually don’t find pieces like that so I was a little worried when I set out for a day of treasure hunting.
I went to all of my favorite places and came home with 2 pieces of furniture, a few smalls and all of the extras I needed to help make the Lumberback party successful. My car was packed!
Here’s a quick shot of the top.
The legs are really pretty too.
I painted it in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Duck Egg. It was cold outside the day that I needed to paint so I had to paint inside. If you’ve never used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint before it doesn’t have much of an odor at all. This makes it really nice because it’s hard to wait on the right weather conditions sometimes.
I used two coats of paint, followed by clear furniture paste wax and buffed with a lint free white cloth.
I have no idea who this lady is but I loved her as soon as I saw her. The frame alone is totally swoon worthy.
I’ve been picking things up here and there the past few weeks so I’ll have more about what I’ve been hauling home next week.
See you back here tomorrow. It’s been cold and rainy in Florida most of the week and I’m baking banana bread.
