Modernized Table

There is no doubt I love vintage but sometimes I need to balance it with a classic accessory or two.

A few years ago I found this table at an antique mall.  It is not a true antique but I liked it because it looked like bamboo so I painted it an antique green with a crackle finish.    Since that time the color scheme in our house has evolved and this has been hiding in a corner.

I painted right over the old finish with Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Typewriter, adding in the MMS’s Bonding Agent per the directions.   After two coats of paint I used steel wool instead of sand paper in order to get a dull polished finish.

I finished with the MMS’s Furniture Wax. The final small detail was adding a silver line between each section on the three legs with a paint pen.

Once I have a plan, it is full throttle.  There was very little surface to paint and I feel like I zoomed through the project.  Instant gratification!
