Bright Striped Side Table

Hi my painting friends!
Are you ready to brighten a corner?
Pin It!
Going from this:
To this:
Now that's a cheery update.
First, the curly top trim had to go.
After a base of Burnt Umber on the table top,
I applied layers of paint
by dipping a square of cardstock in multi colored
paint puddles and dragging across the wood top.
It gives a nice layered look.
And here are the first few steps
in making the rope drawer pull:
Bright and happy colors bring the old brown to life.
Pin It!
Garage Sales will be starting here soon!
Let the hunt begin for furniture pieces
that have a new and bright future.
Thanks so much for stopping by,

That is definitely a great makeover. It went from an old piece of furniture to a bright, cheerful modern day piece.

Great transformation Deb! Love the colors and that cute rope handle. I keep saying it but one day I'm going to use your card stock painting trick. I think it gives such a cool look to your pieces.

I love it! The rope handle is perfect!

There is absolutely no comparison. I LOVE your little table.

I have an antique record cabinet that I painted red, yellow and blue several years ago. I wanted to paint it white, but my husband loves it. I am think that doing a stripe thing might be just what I need.

Thanks for the inspiration.

There you go again Lake Girl! You are so talented with that paintbrush of yours. Your photos always seem to draw me over to see what's happening. I love on a lake too in Pacific NW. Such a serene place to create. Blessings to you, Patti
