I have heard it said that every room could use a little red.
I love red, well I use to LOVE red.
Everything was red.
It was a little overwhelming. I had a red dining room, red and gold bedroom, heck my boys nursery was (is) red, black, and tan. So I still do LOVE red, but I love it better now when it is just a little punch of red.
A punch of red makes it more special.
I found this table and it was in bad shape. It must have been left out in the rain or maybe they had a 4 year old that like to just pour water all over it periodically throughout the day... everyday for a year or so.
In other words, I will have some tables that will be in this condition in a little while.
So here is what she looked like before.
Just a sad simple table. I had already started sanding down the wavy top.
Then I primed and spray painted with some candy apple spray paint.
Holy Cow that is bright!
Next I got some Ralph Lauren glaze that I already had tinted "tea stain" and put some in a cup and then mixed in some graphite paint with it.
Just mixed it together and then brushed it on then wiped it off.
I have to say I REALLY like how it turned out.
See? Just a perfect punch a red to a room.
The red makes the details on the side pop out. I didn't even notice it before.
I got the handles at Hobby Lobby.
So go forth and make a punch of red in your room. You will love it!
I am posting to these parties.
I am also selling this table for $60 Chicagolanders!
