Before and After: Elegant Grey Art Deco Table

What a busy long weekend it's been!  I may have to think twice about taking on two full projects in 4 short days next time.  But I did manage to finish both and here is your first peek.  The antique art deco table I picked up a few weeks ago had such lovely lines that I knew it had to be transformed into something super elegant.  Here's the before...


I chose a pale blue grey by CIL called 'Reflecting Pool'.  It turned out lighter than I thought but I'm still very happy with it.  After much sanding priming, painting and finishing - here's the after shots!






If you live in the Winnipeg area and are interested in purchasing this table, you can visit here.

Stay tuned for pics of the completed Vintage Blue Bedside Table to come very soon...

Have a great day!

  5. It's so cute! I love the paint color; perfection.

    Quick question, what kind of paint brush did you use? I also occupied my weekend with some furniture painting but I'm so clueless about the different kinds of brushes...I ended up using whatever was in the garage and I swear, it took me forever to paint a tiny table!

  7. Hi Dolores!

    I used a paint brush that I've had forever, it's one I spent a bit of money on ($20ish if I recall) and it's a natural hair brush designed for water-based paint. For the most part I use small foam rollers to do my pieces, and use the brush mainly for corners. It does take a while as you build up practice though!
