I painted my coffee table AGAIN


I am in love with turquoise these days.  I decided to add some turquoise to my living room by giving my dumpster found coffee table a swirly paint treatment.

Before:

After:
That's Eloise hanging out under the table.
As you can see, under the table is a popular hangout for my pets.  

This was a ridiculously simple paint treatment, I poured small amounts of creamy white, light aqua and turquoise paint into a plastic container and didn't mix them together at all.  Then I dipped a 2" brush into the center of the paint and brushed it the whole length of the table, working my way from one side to the other.  After that first coat dried, I added a few more streaks of colour here and there and that's it!

I gave my tray a facelift, too.  It's beginning to look very "cottage'y" around here!!

Have a fabulous and creative week!

    I am in love with turqoise right now too! I am decorating a room in that color. Your table turned out so pretty. You always amaze me with all of your projects. It's hard sometimes to start a new project, but coming over here really inspires me. Thank you.

  33. Love it! And I'm sure I'm not biased at all, being a turquoise lover too ;-) Isn't it amazing how you can create such a cool effect just by loading up a few different paint colours on your brush :-)
