Union Jack-Repurposed table

 Union Jack-Repurposed table


I want to share a transformation with you today that actually took awhile to do....not because it was a difficult transformation but because it took me so long to decide what to do with this little old table.  I wanted to transform it completely out of the "old" state it was in to something new and exciting!  I picked this  little lady up on the 3rd day of a garage sale....can't believe she was still there...AND only a couple of bucks!

Little Miss 2 tier!



This table sat and sat in my garage for about 4 months before I drug it in the house and started on it.  I have always wanted to do a Union Jack flag on something but this oval table didn't feel like the right fit for a flag.  Guess what...I did it any way!  I looked up different styles/colors/dimensions and such.  Here is where I found the correct dimensions to start the transformation.




I painted the entire table in Miss Mustard Seed milk paint- Flow Blue with the bonding agent added.  I then line drew out the first layer....painted it Tricycle Red of course MMSMP with bonding agent....because I really didn't want any chippyness!

Next...I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in "Old White" slightly watered down.  Still just pencil drawing and rough painting the edges.  Last the skinny lines on top of the Old White....I used blue painters tape to tape it off because I didn't trust my free hand at drawing the lines.  



Look what happened....at the time I was so upset that it pulled my white paint up.  Then after stepping back and counting to like 100...I just kinda went with it.  I laid the blue painters tape in random places and started pulling it up.  Looks kinda cool eh???





Today she was taken to booth 172 at Great Lakes Antique Mall in Coloma, Michigan.  Wouldn't she make a great statement piece.....and only $89....she won't last long.

Thanks for stopping by today....see you soon!

Hi Kelly,
Great transformation! I've seen these tiered tables at garage sales and thrift stores, and they look pretty awful. After seeing yours, I'm going to have to think twice before passing up on the next one I find. I'm pinning your table for inspiration.
Thanks for visiting my blog, Altered Artworks, and commenting on my Chicken Wire & Burlap Frame Transformation. It's one of my favorites!

Tammy @ A Walk in the Countryside said...

Great transformation! I'm now a new follower and am looking forward to your new projects!

Cindy said...

Thanks so much you all....this was a fun one! Sometimes it's hard for me to "just let" things happen with the paint but I'm learning to let it happen!! Any of you use chalk paint or milk paint?

Cristina Garay said...

I love this Union Jack transformation! Yeah, the random distressing looks cool!

kelly arent-Copper Roof Interiors LLC said...

I absolutely love it Kelly!! Such a great piece to use this finish on!! Beautiful as always!! pinning and Sharing!! Thanks for sharing~ Lori

Suzan Sweatman said...

That turned out gorgeous Kelly - I still haven't tried MMS milk paint and every time I see a piece done in it I know I have to try it!
I have a dresser I'm going to be doing in the Union Jack - I should probably wait till I get some :)
Beautiful transformation!

Thanks so much Lori and Suzan for stopping by and lovin on my cool little table. It was so much fun and so glad she went to a home that loved her too. It was my first time trying out a Union print!

Petticoat Junktion said...

Love this piece and you priced it way too low! Like the distressing. I have found it's best to remove the painters tape within a few minutes of painting because when the paint dries there is a greater chance of it lifting with the tape.

kelly arent-Copper Roof Interiors LLC said...

I know....the light bulb went on went it sold in 2 days! Ugh,,,,,my pricing is all a learning curve. Thanks for the encouragment tho!
I did remove tape pretty fast....I don't know what happened! I kinda went with it tho! :)

Christina said...

Love this! what a great redo! See you on the tour! :)

kelly arent-Copper Roof Interiors LLC said...

Thanks so much Christina! Yep can't wait for tour either! Should be fun.

Claire Berard said...

Wow!! Totally awesome!! Love it!

Kimberly Glinski said...

Cindy said...

So so cute Kelly!! It's so funny you posted this today...I have a similar table I've been wanting to paint, but one of the legs is really wobbly (like ready to break off wobbly) and I'm not sure how to fix it. looks like someone tried to glue it, but that sure didn't work. do you have any tips for me on how to shore up that leg??
thanks a bunch :-)

Love Love this tiered table - the blue paint, union jack and even the peeled paint. Would love to get my hands on a table like that! I found this pretty table over at the Twirl & Take a Bow party.

I love how it came out! The imperfections are perfect. If I had lived closer, I would have bought it. I have a similar table, but larger. Definitely getting some inspiration for what to do with it.
Popping in from Blogtalk!
