This post is sponsored by Velvet Finishes, however all opinions are 100% mine. Sometimes I forget how much I love painting furniture. Before this project, it had been too long since my last furniture makeover. With a few furniture painting projects prior to this one, there seemed to be hiccups every time I turned around…
The part-time child, Bill, and I have formed a sort of business partnership.
I find furniture for him to paint. He paints it. I write about it. We sell it. I get my initial investment back and he keeps the profit for his labor.
When I first presented this idea to him, he was ecstatic and couldn’t wait to jump on the two end tables that I had already picked up.
I even let him pick out the color, which in my opinion is the perfect navy paint…
I’ve had this table in my basement for nearly a year. I loved its shape so much, but just couldn’t decide what to do with it. When I finally did decide what to do with it, it was an utter failure (I’ll get there in a minute). Luckily, it made a spectacular comeback with the help of a little leopard print goodness.
