Put Your Feet Up!

Saturday, 4 December 2010

Apparently I suffer from the same disorder as some of you all....I can NOT for the life of me, remember to take before pictures BEFORE I alter the original piece in some way. I get so mad at myself! Anyway, the below table was originally one of a pair that each had a thin veneer top. The first one was in great shape...I painted it white and distressed it...and sold it. But of course I didn't take pictures of that one.

This one, however, wasn't quite as easy. The veneer was really peeling, so I yanked it off, thinking that there was solid wood underneath. Not.so.much...this was underneath. Now I had a table that I really couldn't use. Meanwhile, this table would.not.stop.bleeding through whatever light paint or primer I put on it. Kilz, high adhesion primer...you name it, I tried it, and she kept on bleeding. She was just wasn't supposed to be a white, distressed table in her second life :(

So, I got creative...it had such a cute shape, I thought "why couldn't this be an ottoman?". I called up my handy father-in-law and asked him to cut a board that I could upholster and attach to the table. Then I painted her black...which I ended up REALLY liking!

Here is the finished product!

The paint really isn't as shiny in person...I really need to work on taking good photos of furniture. What are your secrets?
