She has scalloped wood details that had been broken off on one side, and a layer of dust that told me this little one needed some TLC.
I, like many others, am FULL BLOWN on the stripes bandwagon. I love stripes. (You should see my closet...talk about stripes rut in the wardrobe department).
Bad-blogger-Ashley did not take any "during" pictures because I was just so anxious to get the table done. And when you're working with a finite time limit (i.e. nap time), sometimes you just have to skip blogger etiquette.
But I do have my after pictures!
The process was pretty standard:
4. Paint (white)
6. Paint (stripes)
You'll also notice that I chipped off all the old scalloped edging. It was too broken to salvage, and I like the clean lines that the piece now has without them.
The stripes are a subtle green-grey-brown that I love. The paint color is Behr's Rhino which I used as the wall color for my old craft room (that never got finished...good thing we moved).
I haven't sealed it yet because I'm still debating on some sort of stencil on top of the stripes like this:
But for now, I love my stripes and my "new" $10 side table.
