Little Red Table transformation

Happy Holidays!  Hope you all had a fantastic holiday and spent some long over due time with your families.  I know I sure did.  But, it's time to get back at it and find my routine.  I gave you a sneak peek last week of how I decided to try a new technique on how to give a layered look while painting.  Here is a little table I found at a thrift store and she has been staring at me for about 6 months waiting for me to do something with her!



She was in pretty rough shape when I rescued her!  I think there was 3 layers of different paint colors on her.  It took couple of times with the Strypeze to get her down to bare wood.


But look.....darling as is!!  But I really think she needs a little color ....don't you?



I knew I want to give the"layered" look a try.  As I was looking all over the web to figure out how to do this I came across this easy technique on....of course my Pinterest!!!  Vaseline....who wouda thunk.....and I don't even have to go out and buy any!  I started by selecting Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Aubusson Blue for my under color.  Painted random spots then started globbing on the Vaseline.



I chose Emperor's Silk from Annie's collection.  I started painting the entire table being carful when going over the vaseline globs.  




I thought it was going to be difficult to remember where I placed the vaseline....but look...it's very evident where it is.




It just kinda does it's thing.   After the Emperor's Silk was dry enough...I started wiping off the globby area's with a dry cloth and voila.....it was perfectly random with all it's awesomness!!!


This little red table is  24 x 23x 13 and will be $55 in my booth at Great Lakes Antique Mall in Coloma.

Thanks so much for stopping by today to check out the finished Little Red Table.
Happy New Year all!

xoxo
Kelly

Oh you sound just like me. I have to sit with things for awhile before they "talk" to me. :) I love how this turned out! I have not tried this technique yet. Looks great.

Hi Kelly! I just found your blog at Nifty Thrifty Sunday and I am so glad I did!

Awesome! I have heard about the Vaseline trick but haven't ever tried it. I love the use of a second color underneath instead of just distressing to let the wood show through. So glad I know how to do that now!! Yay! Thanks so much for your visit to my blog earlier - glad I made the trip back to your blog. It looks awesome... going to check it out now!!
