I am so happy to be getting back in the groove of things and show you guys a project of mine.
A colorful and favorite project of mine.
I never could have imagined that this table would end up so cute in the end.
I picked it up at a yard sale a few months back. Initially, I thought I would just do a quick flip of it. I was going to paint it a simple white and make the handle gold.
The table decided it would not be a quick flip. No, no, no. It decided it had been forgotten for far too long and needed something more.
After I had sanded it and attempted to fill the gouges and scratches with putty, the table top surface just would not become smooth.
I gave up and tossed it to the side for a couple weeks until I was at Home Goods one day and found some gorgeous green and white striped wrapping paper. I bought the paper knowing it would look great on the table.
After looking at the green in the wrapping paper, I decided the table needed some more color to go along with that pop of green. I pulled out the paint I used on my daughter’s dresser in the nursery and gave the legs and sides a couple coats of Salmon Pink by Behr. I painted the bottom shelf white. I didn’t want there to be too much of a good thing with the coral.
Next, I brought the table inside and laid the wrapping paper over the top to get an idea of what size to cut it down to.
Sorry for the terrible lighting photo, but literally, that’s all I did, lay it on the table and cut it out.
Once I cut it out, I put a coat of mod podge on the table top, laid the paper on top and gave the top a few coats of Mod Podge to protect it. I put the mod podge along the edges as well and pressed the paper under the top as I went.
I gave the handle a coat of gold spray paint.
I apologize for the excess photos.
Wait. No. I don’t apologize. She looks fabulous. Her photo should be everywhere.
Where did she go, you ask?
Oh, she only sold within 30 minutes of being listed.
No, I’m not kidding. I told you she was fabulous.
