This little table came from a barn sale. Isn't it cute? The gentleman told me that it was his nightstand when he was a child. Now he just thought it was too small to be practical. That's just what I loved about it. It is tiny and petite. And with a pop of color, a perfect accent.
Somehow, I forgot to take a before photo, but it was your basic brown wood.
After the usual scrubbing, sanding and priming, two coats of the teal. It always seems a little bright at this point, but have no fear, the glaze will tone it right down.
I just mixed a little black paint with clear glaze. I brushed it on with a little sponge brush and wiped it off with a cloth. This seems like the most practical way to go for me. You can mix any color with the clear glaze and have your own custom shade of glaze. I just mix it all together in an old margarine tub.
And don't you love the little teardrop knob?
I think I like teal!
