Saved by Red

Hi All,

Hope you are having a good week.  It amazes me how fast January is going!  I hope to relax a bit today, catch up on things that have piled up and NOT pick up a paint brush.  Yes, I am walking away from the paint…for the day.

Anyway, I want to share a table that received another life through paint.

After a good cleaning, I grabbed Emperor’s Red.

That’s a lotta red.  Trust me, it is bright!

I toned it down a bit with a mix of waxes.

It’s a great splash of color for any room.  It’s a short table and can easily decorate the top of another piece of furniture.

I forgot how much I like this color!  I used it a bit before the holidays and got caught up in the neutrals again.

That’s what I got for today.  I will post my spaces tomorrow.  I realize I haven’t shared in a while and they have received many updates over the weeks!

Have a great day!
