Painted Hidden Storage Table



Just a little post to share a recently finished painting project. I picked up this piece off my local Facebook Marketplace sale page. It was the perfect size for a quick makeover.





It was in pretty good shape except for the top, which I did end up stripping and completely sanding.
I then re-stained the top and sealed with poly.




For the base and the frame I used Dixie Belle's Dropcloth color. This has quickly become my favorite shade of white. Not to harsh or bright as some shades of white can be.



-
For the front false drawer front I used Dixie Belle's Vintage Duck Egg. 

This gave it a POP of color.



Original hardware was re-attached and the legs were slightly distressed.







The best part of this table is the hidden shelf in the back.




It is a great area for hidden storage when the table is against a wall.




This was a quick makeover on one of our rainy afternoons lately. 

Luckily the sun came out recently for some pictures.








This is now available in my shop spot at The Coop Antiques.

Thanks for stopping by,

Painted Secretary Desk



Here's hoping that everyone had a fun and safe Memorial Day weekend. Summer is definitely here in Florida, it is hot, hot and more hot with temps in the upper 90's. Add in the humidity and you've got one hot, steamy mess.

For a quick update to a secretary desk I've had I decided paint was again to the rescue. This is the before.









It is a pretty common style of desk with three large drawers on the bottom.

I again used Dixie Belle Paint in Drop-Cloth for a quick and easy makeover.




I love having drawer fronts painted a different color or left in their original state.

These drawer fronts were painted with latex oops paint.



I left the inside unpainted except for the flip desk top.

I did distress slightly on the edges of desk and drawers.




Original hardware was put back on after completed.
Clear coat was applied as a sealer.



This was a easy update for a dated piece.

Here's to having a great Summer!

Thanks for stopping by,
