Hey there, Sweet Friends, it’s Transformation Tuesday and I’ve got a project to show you.
When It’s Time to Re-Paint that Furniture Piece.
I was reading emails this week and ran across Sharon’s post, “When It’s Time to Re-Paint that Furniture Piece,” and it made me think of exactly what happened to this “Vintage Side Table with Magazine Holder.”
I picked up this Vintage Side Table with Magazine Holder a couple months back at the Good Will here in California. It was a dark walnut wood stain/color and I loved the spindle features and all of it’s character. I’m always looking for places to store my favorites books and magazines, and so I was thrilled to get the piece. I think it was an awesome price of $6.99!
I originally painted it all white with DIY Paint White Swan and then did a colorful look on the top which was similar to the Feature Wall look. You can read about the Feature Wall here and watch the video here. Although I liked the colors in the table top, I just felt like it did not go with my vibe.
After reading Sharon’s post, it was such a relief to know that I’m not the only one out there that paints a piece of furniture and then paints it again. It’s exactly what happened to my Vintage Side Table with Magazine Holder. I just couldn’t get pleasure from the first makeover.
In Sharon’s case, I don’t think she was unhappy with her project, “Coffee Station Sideboard” she just decided to do a make-over again and again and again. Read the post here. I love watching Sharon, from Australia “Breath Life Into Old Furniture,” because that is exactly what I love to do. You can check out her website here.
