A Whimsical Makeover: The Tiered Table Edition

A few weeks back I posted this picture on my "pick your paint" Facebook Album.
It is a beautiful table with slight water damage on the top. It needed to be redone. I waited for someone to snatch it up (about 3 hours). Then I couldn't wait any longer.

Naturally, I knew what color is had to be. A color that I have been neglecting lately....Duck Egg!!!

Here she is now:

I chose to pair a custom Coco mix with the Duck Egg. This showed off the details nicely. 

This table is currently for sale at Carter's Cottage.

  12. SO BEAUTIFUL! LOVE IT! I grew up in the era that "EVERYONE" had those tiered tables. I loved ours "BUT" it was a chore and my duty to keep it dust free. It certainly held LOTS OF TRINKETS and was a full time job! Thank you for the memories AND an inspiration to PAINT IT a pretty color!
    Have a wonderful weekend,
