Hey y’all! The house is starting to come together, granted it’s happening a little more slowly than I would like, but that could also be because I am the queen of procrastination. Nonetheless, more and more projects are getting complete, which makes me happy 🙂 I’ve had this end table for several years and for about the past 2 years I have toyed around with the idea of painting it, but I was never 100% sure that’s what I wanted to do. Or what color I wanted to paint it with.
During the move the top got a bit scratched up and I took it as a sign that it was time to paint this great piece of furniture. Around the same time, I was looking at the gorgeous painted furniture from Farmhouse Blues and saw this piece she painted in ASCP Aubusson Blue…it was love at first sight! I knew that this end table would be perfect in Aubusson Blue.
I didn’t have to prime it and it only needed 2 coats of paint. To be honest, I barely sanded down the marks on the top and you can’t even see them after I painted it. I typically like to add a little bit of water to make them thinner coats. I am so happy with how this end table turned out and am wondering why I didn’t paint it sooner! It’s a small enough piece where it adds a pop of color, but isn’t overpowering.
Don’t you just love the color? I typically like to play it safe with my furniture colors and stick with grays and whites, but I am so happy I took the plunge and think it looks gorgeous if I do say so myself.
