Tiered Table

We have all seen these tables everywhere.

They are your $3.00 variety.

Little bit particle board…..little bit wood.

LOTTA’ BIT BUGLY. (see previous post on bugly)

I have been wanting to experiment on using two different color paints…on one piece.

I know it doesn’t sound scary to you.

But it did to me.

So…….

I experimented.

Before.

After…

All dressed up with no place to go.

Literally……

Like…..NO place to go.

I do not think it’s my style.

I like it though…

I think.

And I hope I’m not like one of the American Idol contestants that are hideously awful when they are singing and you think to yourself…..

Why didn’t someone tell them that they sounded awful?

Am I blinded by my effort?

Am I the hideous performer?

Or could this piece be used somewhere?

Little baskets tucked under.

Used sideways or long ways……

Wood tones….

Shabby Chic.

Or even traditional?

Maybe I do have a place for it.

I’m just not sure.

I will tell you how I did the two tone paint…….

With one part clearance sample and one part spray paint…..

Tomorrow.

I know you are so excited….or running scared.
If you are coming here from one of the great linky parties…..you have some catching up to do! Like us on Facebook….or sign up for emails. I can’t wait to meet you!

Love,

Me

    I like the two colors, and it makes it look fresh and cool. Perfect with the accent decor on top of it.

    @104ab4dc941a319065cd4ea4702d621b Ok…I just snorted, I laughed so hard! It’s already in the garage….banished to Freebirds apt or Craigslist. I think I would have liked it with the alternate paint green….or even scarier….muted red. What do you think? Alternate colors or too ugly as is? ; ) Love, Me

    I like it — I haven’t tried two different colors on one project (even though I’m probably the last blogger on the planet to say that!).  I did do a piece where I refinished the top and left it wood-grain and painted the rest.  I’d say if this isn’t your style — off it goes to Craigslist and someone will snatch this beauty right up!

    It’s cute. I makes me think of shabby chic meets mid mod meets cottage – mid shabby mod cottage chic?

    I think maybe I’ll have to pass on this one, the colors just don’t work for me. Take care, VBg

    I think it’s cute.  I love the color’s.  I think it would look good in a seaside cottage or a kids room. 🙂

    i disagree.

    I am very critical, especially of the “i have to paint every piece of wood in site” people, but this didnt start out as a quality piece of furniture (wood wise) to begin with, so great piece to paint.

    the colours you chose are very now, especially for people that like that shabby cottage by the sea look.

    and i know it would look great and work well with the colours in my 15yr olds bedroom and she would love it.

    great job…not your style, but well done, i think it will easily be sold!
