ASCP Console Table in Duck Egg

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!

This console table was the first piece that I worked on because it was in the best condition.

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.

Many blessings,

    Oh my goodness…I love this console table! The duck egg color is so pretty! I can see why you bought the portrait too – the frame is gorgeous and the lady is so serene in her blue dress. Your painting skills are so evident – great job!

      Thank you bunches, Angie! As you know my booth is in a coastal community which makes this a popular color second only to white 🙂 Hugs back to you lady!

      Sadly, this one has already been to the store and sold. I think it lasted maybe a week but I do find comfort in the fact that someone can now love it as much as I did. That’s the only hard part of this job. You can’t keep everything 🙂 Sending you hugs and appreciation for your kind comments, CoCo

      This color is one of the most popular colors at the store. In fact, this piece last about one week and is already sold. Its hard to let things go sometimes but I know someone is going to love this stuff as much as I do and that makes my heart happy.
