I trust everyone brought in the new year safely, and now we're all ready to go? I sure am.
This coffee table was given to me by a neighbor in order to make room for mom moving in. Thanks, neighbor! At first I really wanted to do an ottoman with it, but after looking at the height it would have turned out too high. I didn't want to cut the legs, either, so I ended up painting it. I used Palace Grey and Creamy Linen from Farmhouse Paint. The best part? No prep work and no wax!
You may notice a little water damage along some of the lines on top of the coffee table.
I gently sanded to bring them down.
Here is a little closeup of the bumps.
Of course, as with any other type of paint or finish be sure to wash down your piece first.
After 2 coats of the palace grey, I noticed how nice the finish is. No brush stroke marks and smooth to the touch.
Using the creamy linen, I added a damask off centered on the top.
I used the exact same one I used on the damask dresser. Same method too.
I just love how it turned out. It's too bad that I don't have a place for this in my home.
Have a great day!
