This little project is more of a shabby chic makeover and I am more of a Geometric/ Contemporary pattern type of person. But this was an absolute joy to make and loved the fact it was so different from what I usually do.
The curves of the table and the way it was perfect for a cottage chic makeover.
And here is the before shot.
It was in a pretty good condition, nothing really wrong with it except the fact that it was just your typical boring brown table.
And I can’t deal with boring brown tables when I know they have so much more potential!
I went with this deep purple chalk paint.
The table needed about two coats of the purple paint.
Next I went in and used Gold Liquid Gilding to paint the drawer knobs and the front of the table as well as the legs.
The table still seemed really bare even after the Gold Liquid Gilding then I remembered I had bought these Gold Doilies from Michaels.
So then from there on the plan was to decoupage the Doily onto the top of the table and also the sides of the table.
For the top corners of the table I split one Doily into four equal parts and applied it on the four sides with Mod Podge.
When that was actually done it looked even better then I imagined.
This is so not what I’m normally used to creating but it was actually a breath of fresh air to try something different.
What do you guys think?
