Two Tiny Tables

I have had these two little tables for quite a few years. I got them on a sisters trip to NC where we all came back with a  crazy amount of tables for some reason. I think I had 4 tables myself. But they didn't fare well on our move here to FL. We were using pods and it was like 175 degrees out and we just wanted the whole thing over with.



I realized I didn't have a before pic of this guy until I started on the leg. This shot reminds me, I need to get that trim painted. Oh, and you can see part of my dark (in need of paint) cabinets.


 Supplies I had on hand for the job.


 Here they are all painted up. They are two different colors. It decided to rain today when I needed to take pictures so it was difficult. I don't normally have tables on my hearth but it was where the best light was since I have skylights in there. But they also give me shadows.

 

This one is taller and I used a silvery blue on it. I had a quart of it and I'm not sure why I never used it. I rather like this color. I gave it two coats. Then used some burnt umber and glaze mixed together and put it on are the little appliques then wiped off leaving it just in the nooks. I also put some glaze mix on the edges that I sanded a bit.

Then I used some white glaze on top of the applique so that they stood out more. There is one above each leg. This one will go at the end of the hall.



This little guy got paint with what was left of a sample of some BM paint. I had about half of one of those little jars and I had just enough. Could of used a tad more but I made it work. I'll put him next to the couch in the family room.


Instead of the burnt umber I used just the white glaze on this one. No sanding, just got it into all those little grooves. I know it's hard to tell. It did give it a nice sheen and a bit of a white washed look. If you make it bigger it might be easier to see.


Can you see the difference in the colors of the paint? Darn those shadows!
A little more life into some beat up old tables. I have more tables to do. I'm thinking white.

  7. Hi Anita,
    your tables are just adorable! the colors are perfect! And I really love how you added the wooden applique, too. I bought a bunch of wooden appliques at Hobby Lobby this week (40% off!). They add so much interest! thanks for the great idea about painting the trim around the glass block wall. I had never thought of that, and you are right! I think it really would make it stand out less!

  8. Thank you all for your sweet comments! The appliques were already on the table I just glazed them a bit.

    The fireplace screen was 3 separate pieces that I got at an antique market and hinged together.

  14. Your tables came out really lovely. I have two tables that I have never figured out what to do with, perhaps something like that would work.

  15. This table is adorable, and I love the color choice. Anita you asked me about that piece outside....I bought that many years ago at a garden shop in South Florida....it rotted and looked like junk that was til I painted it this season. I do see things like this at Hobby Lobby, do you have one?

  26. wow, just one of those little bitty sample jars was enough? I have two of these tables I trashpicked, one is newer, the other is very old and someone painted it red with pennsylvania dutch designs on it...it is so charming that I can't decide whether to paint over it or not...but the new one, wow, I could just go dig in my garage for BMoore samples and that would be all I need! Thanks!
