Then it sat outside my house for the last four months or so and I devised a different plan for it. I have Christmas to thank.
The house reconstruction once the holiday decor is taken down got me rearranging furnture and working on some spots in the house that I don’t love.
I moved this here and that there.
The orangey varnish finish is rough, but the shape and built-in bookshelf situation make me happy. This table needed a makeover in a big way.
I sanded out a few rough spots and then used my homemade chalk paint to give it a nice clean, fresh winter coat. I actually used th same white paint that runs throughout my house, Sherwin Williams Pearly White. It’s a warm, clean white that takes on light and color in amazing ways. My paint recipe calls for Plaster of Paris (affiliate link) and water , be sure to check out the full tutorial for all the details. Another project with the same color is my soda crate jewelry organizer.
Now it sits nestled between some comfy chairs in my living room and perfectly holds my magazines and drink.
Have you been passing up dated furniture? A little paint and love go a long way!
