It’s time once again for the fantastic, the wonderful, the fabulous Furniture Flippin’ Contest™! Whoot whoot! Every single month these gals get together with some of the hottest furniture painters around to make-over furniture across the world! Plus they let me participate so I think they’re kind of cool!
This months sponsor is the one and only Pure & Original and let me tell you… it was such a treat to work with this paint! It was definitely chalky (which the hubby loves… he says that normal paint looks too smooth now and all of our furniture has to have that chalky look to unite it… he’s been thoroughly brainwashed 😉 ) Either way I’m getting ahead of myself… let’s introduce the hosts!
This month I decided to run with the elegant theme and finally paint the little side table in my living room. I’ve had this little table for several years now and it was my mom’s before me… she was very generous when I moved into my first apartment with all of her leftovers!
Either way this little table has made several moves with me and I love it for the elegant lines and cute little feet. Anything with scrolls and whirls is right up my ally! I just couldn’t decide what color to paint it… so I put it off.
Plus Mom kept telling me she didn’t want it painted so that held me back just a little bit. Finally I decided that this little table lives in my living room so I should love it! I decided to paint it with two coats of evening shadow which is a gorgeous light grey color!
Once I picked my color the rest was history… it only took an hour or so to do the first coat and the second coat went on smoothly an hour or so later!
I am absolutely loving it! It’s the same gorgeous turned leg table but with a new life! I love how it turned out… even the hubby said it turned out pretty good! That’s a pretty high compliment coming from him!
If you love painting furniture as much as I do and you’d like to participate in the next contest contact firstname.lastname@example.org then you can be part of the gang!
