Maggie tightened all the loose spots, she’s good at all the “husband” stuff, we primed it and finally it was ready to paint. Again, I decided to go with a faux leather finish on the top. This works great with furniture that has seen its share of hard times; it covers a multitude of sins, if you know what I mean. Working with the brown top, I used complimentary colors of olive green, pink, white and gold metallic. Then painted small rose buds all around the outside. I introduced some animal print on the leg and of course the black & white checks. Then I brought the leather faux into the base to bring the piece together.
For a little bit of whimsy, I added some embellishments. Three bronze medallions on the top that spell out the word F-U-N and another medallion on the bottom center, where the legs come together.
This really turned out to be a nice piece, if I do say so myself. I was really pumped with the end result! What do you think?
