Simple Table Makeover

I scored two lovely tables.  Neither one was too pretty to begin with.  But once they were coated in paint, that all changed.

I liked the detail, but the finish was blah.

Louis Blue to the rescue!

Cottage Treasures 021

Ignore the dead grass, I needed to be outside at this point!

Cottage Treasures 022

I love the detail.

The second table is a bit taller and wider than the first.  It can serve as a coffee or a side table.

Old White saved this one.

Cottage Treasures 027

Cottage Treasures 028

So are you a blue or a white fan?

Shannon, both of your tables came out beautifully! If I had to vote, I would go with the white... but it's close! Can't wait to see where you put them. :)

I love them both but I tend to go with the white. However, I just got the duck egg blue chalk paint and am getting ready to give it a try!

It's amazing what some paint can do! I've been considering experimenting with some milk paint. Interesting stuff.

Very cute! They both turned out beautifully. I especially love the white one :)

Love them both. I'm addicted to chalk paint, but find I am being a little too "fussy" with some of the things I'm painting - meaning I'm using too many colors on certain pieces. Your pieces are beautiful and simple. Probably so pretty because they're simple! Thanks for sharing.

Great color for sure. I have tried the duck egg blue and Aubusson Blue. Come join in my newbie party sometime. I host one every Monday.

I like both! By chalk paint, do you mean paint that you use to turn a surface into a chalkboard? Just curious because I'd like to give this a try.

They both look great. Love the uniqueness of the first table though.
