I was hesitant about doing a bold colour on these side tables! But I am happy I did :) they’re are definitely unique and will take the right customer to purchase them, but whoever that ends up being I know will love them! Sometimes you just need to be brave when it comes to colour!

Before the magic of art happened!

After being sanded down, I used bin shellac primer! 3 coats! Vintage pieces have a rep for a lot of bleed through (tannins)

I blended two colours together from

behr paint! And added BB Frosch powder!

I did 2 coats of paint, than touched up a few areas with a third coat!

This top had 2 coats of veneer before the natural wood!

It was a big pain in the butt!! I don’t find one technique to be easier veneer will always be a pain to get off

So nice tho!

Twin for twin! Matching matching. I used an espresso stain for the tops!

I then top coated two coats with a poly!

These ended up being a perfect statement Piece! Even though side tables are just as much work if not more than a dresser they’re always so cute!
