So, the before...not bad..but its white...which is, as most of you know, not my favorite. I used my new mat mistint paint that I LOVE! Its a blue/green shade...Kinda like:
Similar, but not. The perk of a mistint..no color exactly like it.
In anycase..its a stunner. I added texture to the drawer with paintable wallpaper and did a handpainted design in the lower shelf because it was dinged and gouged and I liked it looking rough...but not boring..so after I painted it on with gold paint...I distressed the design and oiled just the shelf with walnut. For the rest of the table, I drybrushed with metallic gold paint (Thanks Mom! xox) and repurposed some hardware I already had by spraypainting it pink and distressing it up!
Did you notice that my pictures were taken in 42 different locations? I was trying to get the color with the dry brush to show really well...but *loong dramatic sigh* I had to give up when The Mister wouldnt re-located it for me anymore...*smile*
