Feeling Blue

I am continuing my redo to blue and got the paint out to work on a few things. This little table I purchased 20 years ago from Country Sampler magazine. It was warm honey pine for several years. I then painted it red and now it got a redo to blue. I painted primer over the red, then a coat of cream and then I mixed up this blue from three oops paints that I had. I hand painted the design in brown and then put stain over all of it.

I changed out the glass beads on the silver tray. This chair is here temporarily, until I get something else. I want something that covers up the horribly placed vent (that has a folded envelope shoved in it because it rattles). The picture above the table was chosen to go there with my red table. It has quite a bit a blue in the sky, but I will have to sit with it for a week or so and see if I like it here or not. I also need to find something to fill the urn. I am off to middle child's football game--good thing I like football, huh?


  1. We love the blue! It looks great!

    Have a blessed and wonderful day!

  2. I like your table painted blue. It looks very pretty. Paint does wonders, doesn't it?

    P.S. Thanks for the sweet comment about me looking too young to have kids that age. I think the same about you! I'm a 40 something mother of 3 too. Maybe our kids are helping to keep us young! LOL

  3. The blue looks so fresh and pretty, especially with the hand painted design. I am always fascinated by your furniture makeovers! You're very talented.

  4. haha! I have this exact table except mine was purchased at a garage sale for 2 bucks and one of the legs is falling off! It's good to know what my diamond in the rough "could" look like if I had the talent you have!!



Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate your kind words!
