Revamped Sofa Table

I had a black sofa table. I loved it when I bought it, I liked the black and the style of the table. Nowadays I'm not as fond of black as I once was and I really wanted to give my table a fresh new look.  Out came the paint cans!

I used good 'ol latex paint in Behr Almond Cream and a tiny bit of paint from my tube of acrylic Raw Umber for this project.  I'm thrilled with the new look!



I painted the piece with the Almond Cream and then squirted some of the Raw Umber on the surface of the table top.  I used a small foam roller and just rollered right over the top of the squirted paint until it was spread out relatively evenly and I was happy with the colour and the look of the piece.  I repeated the process for each section of the piece and I  like the mottled look I got. The more I spread out the paint, the more interesting the paint treatment became.


I went back over the table edges with a small painter's brush and the Raw Umber.


Here's what it looked like before:


and now



To give the piece a bit more of a vintage look, I added brass backplates that I got from D Lawless Hardware behind the knobs that I used.  It looks pretty cool!




I  love the new look of my table.



Have a great week!

  8. I love it, Anne. Your table has so much more personality now. Taking the time to paint the edges with the raw umber was a really good idea, as was the hardware you used. Details like that ramp it up a notch. I love that crate on the bottom shelf, too. Really, really love it. xxx ~ Nancy
