I wondered around aimlessly at the shop for the next 15 minutes completely sticker shocked. I wish that I would have taken pictures. $85.00 for a very ugly lamp... AHHH!!! I went home completely defeated that day. I thought my days of furniture painting were no longer. It took my sweet hubby to remind me that I still had yard sales. He always knows what to say to me...
As we were driving to a yard sale, he noticed a Goodwill. I made a quick trip in and came out with a few treasures!
Here is a huge end table that I scored.
We also stopped at Home Depot, so I got to check out their "oops" paint. I found a few colors that I love. I found a really pretty grey, and you know how I love my greys! I also found a green that was really pretty. I went with green!
It didn't have a real wood top. It was one of those really shiny tops, so I sanded and primed it to make sure that my homemade chalk paint stuck. I wanted a little pop of something, so I decided to give it some white accents and then I stenciled the whole top in a floral design.
Again this is not the true color of this table. It is more green that what shows up on the pictures.
I don't know why I can never seem to capture the true color of my furniture. I have a really nice camera. I have signed up for a online course to help my photography skills. What are some of your tips that you have to capture the true color of your subject?
I was able to capture the color more truthfully through my iPhone. Go figure!.
I hope that you guys have a great weekend!
