A Whimsical Makeover: The Versatile Table Edition

Is it a vanity?


Is it a desk?


Is it an entry table?


Is it a sofa table?


Yes! It can be all of those things. It is...The Amazing Versatile Table!

I snagged this beautiful table at the flea market last month. I couldn't wait to paint it. I knew the color I was going to use as soon as I saw it...Duck Egg!!!



This beautiful piece didn't require much prep work and the hardware is lovely. This is the redo I love. Not dirt or grime involved. Why can't they all be this simple. 


Anyway...here is how it turned out:




If you are interested in my painted furniture, there are a few ways to Shop Whimsical Perspective.
This beautiful piece is now for sale at All Things Art Studio in the Berry House in Geneva, Illinois. Please contact me for a viewing or check the studio hours.  I hope to keep the studio  furnished with console tables, shelves and small tables. I will be dropping off more items next week.

  4. That piece is gorgeous! I forgot how yummy Duck Egg is. May have to paint my next piece in that color. My first chalk paint attempt was in duck egg

  5. Came over from Funky Junk to see the color on this table - love it. It is nice when a piece just needs a little prettifying without a major overhaul! Best of wishes in your new venture.

  19. This table is awesome. I love the color. I recently bought ASCP duck egg but haven't painted anything with it yet. Did you use the dark wax? I like your blog a lot and glad I found you over at savvy southern style. Would love for you to post this on my link party at... http://www.doodlesandstitches.com/2012/06/another-fab-friday-thank-you-to.html Thanks for the inspiration :)
