Another milk paint project


More neat makeovers for this hump day.

I was bad and don't have any before pictures to show you.

I picked up this table from a nice gentleman selling it on the side of the road and it was so shiny I needed sunglasses to look at it.

This table is solid oak and has a beautiful fleur de lis on the front and lovely silver and glass claw feet.

I did this table with Miss Mustard seed milk paint 3/4 grainsack and 1/4 shutter gray. I added a bit of antiquing wax, just a little not too much.













i also gave this lamp the chalk paint treatment from oogy shiny brass and lime green to classic white with a simple drum shade. this lamp is so heavy and will look lovely in someone's home

 

i gave the raised leaves a little love with some gold rub n buff for dimension.
i also came across some seltzer bottles for the sale. still haven't come across the elusive green ones for my own collection but i am always on the hunt

 

i had some of the milk paint leftover from the table, so gave a concrete acorn/pineapple the milk paint treatment all ready to hold up some books


Hope your day treats you well,

  7. Would be interesting to know story of that incredibly exquisite table. I love the old tables, the style just really appeals to me. Maybe cause I'm old too, lol? I can remember neighbors in Cleveland, OH when I was very young having furniture like that table. Ah to be rich enuf to come buy it from you, heck, ah to be rich period.

    2. hi christina, yes those legs on that table were original. the pillar was/is a prop i use for my photos and show. i haven't brought it in the house to actually or it would likely be a fern holder. it lives with my other stock in my garage. thanks for visiting
