It’s been a cold snowy winter in our neck of the woods with temperatures and wind chills in the negatives. With a blizzard in tomorrow’s forecast, I’m looking forward to the lazy hazy days of summer.
I picked up these drawer pulls for another dresser but ended up using them on a coffee table that was started last summer.
It had a sterile white factory finish when I bought it. One of my friend’s painted it gray then I layered over it in turquoise but the turquoise was way too bright for my taste. I covered it up with a drop cloth and have been using it as a work bench ever since.
I kept imagining this piece in a lake shore cottage so I busted into several new colors from American Paint Company and poured some of each onto a plastic take-out container.
I brushed them on with no real rhyme or reason, layering them and dry-brushing until I liked the way it looked.
This is the result. The main colors I chose were American Paint Company’s Treasure Box, Voyage, Waistcoat, Beach Glass, Surfboard, Blue Jeans, Limoges and Parchment, mostly from The Ellis Collection.
