A Fresh Coat of Paint: Before & After
It’s amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do!
I have had this sewing table for quite some time. It was a lovely hand-me-down from my inlaws. It’s been sitting in the basement and I kept telling myself I needed to work on it. I finally got my act together this past weekend and went to the paint store. Once I had the paint, I couldn’t wait anymore and started right away.
I brought this ball of yarn along to the paint store with me for inspiration! It is Madelinetosh – Tosh Lace in Turquoise. I’m working on something new with this yarn that I’m excited to share, but that’s for another day – hopefully soon!
The color I settled on is called Tropical Turquoise by Benjamin Moore. I used their Advance product which is oil-based, but is quick drying and can be washed off hands with soap and water. I highly recommend it!
I don’t know why I waited so long to do this, because it was an incredibly quick project and I’m thrilled with the results. Even though it’s technically a sewing table, I plan to use it for all my crafting adventures! I have some leftover paint and I’m eyeballing items around the house to see what else I can use it on, but I have a feeling this color is good in small doses only!
