Hi guys! I wanted to share a simple DIY project that I completed this past weekend. I’ve had this beautiful claw-and-ball foot side table in my shop for quite some time now. It was an awesome thrift store find that I was sure someone would snatch up instantly. Well, three months later and it’s still sitting in the shop. So, I decided to add some pizazz to it with a little paint.
Unfortunately I remembered to take a ‘Before’ picture after I’d primed it. Smh! Luckily, you can see the side table below in the photo of my shop. It’s very nice but kind of on the boring side. You barely even notice it with all the colorful pieces of furniture surrounding it.
We all have pieces in our home that at some point will need updating. Paint is a super easy way to update wood instantly! Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
After I finished glazing with the black, I decided that the table needed something more. So I went back over it with Martha Stewart’s Metallic Glaze to give it’s some highlights and shimmer. This gave me the effect I was after. Check out the finished product!!
I hope these tips help you with your home makeovers. Feel free to ask questions and send me pics of your DIY projects. I’m here to help. Happy Painting!
