Check out this old dark table...
I spent a few hours sanding the
extra glossy finish off this functional piece.
My inspiration for this table came
from the Special Issue 2015
Country Sampler's Christmas.
There is a cherry red drop side table
with ivory legs in that magazine.
After consulting my sister
and mother about the magazine
table idea, I took the plunge on this
unique bold paint job.
I started this project by painting the legs.
While it was upside down I did the
bottoms of each drop side,
since they will show when down
from certain perspectives.
Then I had to completely cover the legs
so no dark paint would splatter down
on my crisp ivory paint.
I was also careful to protect all my cupboards
from that strong pigment red paint.
I love this type of table.
It would come in so handy for holiday
meals, card games and tea time!
The striped pattern is similar
to the old grain sacks.
It's a fun blend of modern & vintage.
Don't you think?
I prefer to use flat Valspar paint.
This color is called Rushing Red.
I had to go back with a swath
of painted cardboard & match
it to the proper sample.
