A quick table makeover...

I recently bought this table at the thrift shop for $6.00. My plan was to paint it green, but my plans always go awry when I pull out the spray can and acrylic tubes!
I sprayed the top Heirloom White and the base green - but after painting the flowers, I repainted the base aqua:
My plan was to cover the top with flowers and then I figured my energy would be wasted because once you set a lamp or book atop, the flowers would be covered. So, my common sense won over and I only painted a few flowers:
And a little black and white is a must:
Just a fun little table to brighten up a room!

  1. What a great shape to that tabletop, Patti! I can't believe you got it for $6.00. I wish I could find a deal like that here. You are so talented! I love the flowers you did on the top and, of course, the black and white checks to the side.

  4. Once again I'm kicking myself because I saw a similar table last week garage sale shopping and it was $5. It did have a little crack in it but you've shown me the possibilities!

    Love the black and white touch!

  12. Patti, So clever I love the flowers. You are such a talented gal. I just aquired a round table similar to yours and have yet to hear it tell me what it wants to be!
