Did that title make you nervous?
I’m not an in-your-face kind of girl; I’m pretty low-key. I like unique and whimsical projects, but usually if they’re done in a subtle way. Confused now? 😉 You can skip ahead and scroll down for more pics if you want, but promise to come back up and read the rest of the post okay?
A couple months ago I scored this awesome midcentury piece. It’s actually a record cabinet, but these days I think most people would use it for storing books or magazines rather than records.
See what I mean? Pretty cool.
I totally loved the shape and style of this piece but I envisioned it to be brighter and more fun.
I painted it in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Pure White (which took several coats to cover this dark piece – I should’ve used some shellac primer first) and for the subtle, whimsical part I added polka dots to the inside. I used Modern Masters Olympic Gold metallic paint and a sponge pouncer from Martha Stewart. (I have this exact pouncer set
from Amazon – affiliate link.)
Lastly I protected it all with Annie Sloan’s clear wax.
Surprise! So fun, right?
Below is one of the original prints I bought from an artist in Montmartre, Paris. It normally hangs on my bedroom wall.
I hope you like my midcentury table makeover – if so, please share it with your friends. 🙂
The boys are on spring break so I may not be blogging too much this week – but next week is a boy-themed celebration with some of my blogger friends, including a giveaway!
