Wanted to show you a couple of neat old items I refinished — for you to enjoy when you come here to stay.
Below is a bedside table which I painted a soft green and then antiqued with bronze metallic paint. It turned out great and it was really quite easy to achieve this effect… you can see a bit of it here beside the bed in the second bedroom. Here’s a better photo, showing the detail stencilled on the top (and a very cool antique lamp):
Here’s an old cream jug, it was ready for the scrap-heap. A coat of black Tremclad and then a dry-brush coat of royal blue enamel paint gave it a new lease on life. It’s now in the dining room… it’s a bit hard to see here because the pussy-willow lights overwhelm the exposure, but that’s it holding the lights. You will love these soft lights, a nice accent for the dining room and a perfect night-light for the stairs.
