Ron brought this home for me several months ago and I new exactly what I was going to do with it. I was inspired by my friends at Twice Lovely. They painted a drop leaf table with a faux runner and it was beautiful. I wanted to try a similar idea. I was going for an airy/cottage/vacation feel. I started by priming and priming again. The green legs were difficult to cover. After that, I painted it in one of my favorite shades of off-white. I felt like an auto mechanic because I was on my back underneath the table painting while drips dropped on my head. Once that dried for a full day, I began painting the stripes. I picked some airy and beautiful colors from my stock pile. If you have been to my house, you know how much I love the blue color that is in the faux runner. It is currently in my kitchen, dining room and bedroom. I hope to update with more pictures in the future. My house gets very little natural light and it is hard to showcase a beautiful piece like this.
