You know the saying that bad things happen in 3's,
well I'm here to tell you that good things do too.
I had the BEST weekend finding furniture at garage sales this week.
2 coffee tables,
1 mid century dresser,
1 bookshelf and
3 side tables.
(total cost of all 7 pieces $32.00)
Two were from the same bedroom set and the third was just a fluke.
I've decided to try and do three different technique's on them.
The first technique is
but before I could do that I sanded lightly,
primed with KILZ, and painted it Ivy Green from Krylon.
Then I pulled out my trusty MS stencils
picked my pattern,
found some Craft Smart paint called Lime Green,
added a little white and went to town on the edges.
(they kind of already had a border, but this pops it even more.)
Then I did a border around each drawer front
and spray painted the hardware a hammered bronze.
Here is my first style of these side tables.
I love how the stencil is just a little lighter than
the Ivy Green and gives a subtle design element.
It always amazes me how a fresh coat of paint can really take something out of date and give it a whole new vibe.
