Repainting Furniture We Already Painted.. Black And Animal Hide

I’m sure I shared this server table that I originally finished blue and white

This was one of my favorites – I carved the finish around the color of the blue flower ceramic knob I’d found at Hobby Lobby .  The base color was a Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat I custom tinted, that was much like Huckleberry Blue  (Huck Blue wasn’t out last fall when I painted this).  

First layer custom blue TB, then Chipping Creme, then Textured Basecoat Wisteria.    I sanded it real good to give it a weathered look, and topcoated with the Minwax Wipe-on Poly.

I loved how it turned out… reminded me of faded blue jeans…

As pretty as it was, it wasn’t a combo high on the request list, so I decided to repaint it.    That’s the great thing about all these wonderful easy DIY paints – you can change things up easily…

I decided to texture the top and bottom shelf –

here’s the final results

Took the top aged metallic champagne,  and the base Textured Basecoat Peppercorn over Parchment, Toned…

and a few Swarovski crystals at each corner

I added a little extra texture on the drawer… who would know it was once blue and white?

The blue knob removed, and a pretty crystal one in its place…

Sold.    The buyer requested a little silver mixed into the top, which was easy enough to accomodate –  waiting for pick up

And the knob?  Too pretty to put back in the storage drawer…

I redid this shelf using CeCe Caldwell Maine Harbor Blue,  then some glue, then CeCe Simply White, and CeCe Clear Wax to seal.    Delicious!
