As of May 4, my work schedule slowed down immensely. I've been pumping out furniture pieces during this down time. If you've been following for some time, you know that this year I've been obsessed with painting things black.
Well, here's another one for you.
I first introduced you to this little antique table in this post:
It was just simple wood. This little corner of my house is funny shaped, and eventually I found the perfect spindly corner bookshelf to put here and store all our books. Click here to see that post.
So the little antique table floated around the house, until finally I was ready to part with it. I've seen this exact same piece painted in bright crazy colors, like turquoise and red, but that isn't really my style.
I used my go-to black: Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in Typewriter
I painted the whole thing, and then sanded it off, heavier in some places to show that great wood underneath.
I finished it with a coat of Miss Mustard Seed Furniture Wax. Of course, all her products are VOC-free.
It sold already, to a lady in a red shirt, via Craigslist.
