She’s So Fancy – Platinum Table Makeover


You guys, I did a bad thing.  In my defense, it was an accident and I won’t do it again!  I got this little table sometime last year and I could’ve sworn that I took a pic of it.  But after too much wasted time spent searching through my digital files, alas, there is no “before” photo to be found.  And since I was in crazy market mode when I was working on it, there are only a couple of “in-progress” pics – but you’ll forgive me, right?  😉

So let’s start at the end this time – here is the beautiful After:

This yard sale table started out beige and some of the paint was peeling off.  I gave it a good sanding and painted it first in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Grey.  It was better than the beige, but still didn’t have the “wow” factor.  So I grabbed my Platinum metallic paint from Modern Masters and gave it a couple coats.  It looked like this:

It was a little too tin foil looking for this table.  So I distressed and distressed…. trying to sand off the brightness of the platinum and letting the calmer gray peek through the soft metallic.

I finished it off with MasterClear topcoat (also from Modern Masters) and here she is again:

So fancy and shiny.   <3

It’s definitely still silver/gray but it’s not too bright and tin foily.

After I distressed, you can also see some of the original beige in the grooves.

As a teen I was obsessed with silver – I would’ve killed to have this table in my room back then!  Hahaha

That’s another piece I brought to the vintage market last week – more coming at you soon!

What do you think of this platinum table makeover?  Too shiny, or just right?

    I have never seen a table done like this I have liked
    until now. I love it and have a couple of small antique tables I am going to try this on, thank you so much. I have so many projects right now that it will take me a while, but I will let you know how they turn out.
