It was a beautiful week for painting, but unfortunately I was off my feet with a pulled muscle. Let me just tell you, it was not much fun. I watched bits and pieces of all kinds of not-so-great movies. Hopefully next week will be much better! ... But in the meantime, here are two pairs of end tables that I completed recently. Nothing too exciting, but I think they look a whole lot prettier than the way they started! ... The first pair went light and bright!
They started out a lovely shade of dark pine, oh-so-popular in the 1970's.
They were among the first pieces that I used to try out my new paint sprayer. You can see the finished bench here and the little accent table here.
If you've been anxious to try out a sprayer, but not sure where to start, you really can't go wrong with the Finish Max Fine Finish Sprayer from HomeRight. You can check out the details of my first spray painting experience here.
It's really hard to take pictures and spray paint at the same time, but here are my pieces after priming. I love the idea of working on multiple pieces at once!
This pair went Silky White from Behr.
They got a light distressing and some fresh hardware.
So much better, don't you think?
This second pair started out a very orange shade of brown.
I decided to go dark and moody with Pencil Point from Behr. I like these dark shades of gray with the wood showing through when I distress them.
Fresh hardware makes all the difference.
And you'll just have to believe me that they make a pretty pair. They were already delivered to Main Street when I realized I forgot to take after pictures. These babies are surprisingly heavy, so only one made the trek back out to the porch for a beauty shot!
So there you have it, two pretty pairs with a fresh new look!
Hope you are having an awesome weekend!
I'm just happy to be up and walking again!
