Brown Table to A Creamsicle Table

Good Afternoon folks.  It's a nice and sunny Michigan afternoon but it's still so cold.  It's been a good winter to do inside projects and I'm trying to get them done so when this weather breaks I will be able to enjoy the nice Spring days.  Anyways, folks, here is my latest project.  I just loved this little half table with all the cut-out work and pretty legs, but the table top was gouged and beat up so I decided to do a little bit of painting.  Here is the before table:

As you can see it was kinda of beat up and my husband filled the gouges with wood filler.

Isn't the table legs great looking.  It is really a sweet little table.  So I started painting and started by putting some Kilz paint on first to cover up the imperfections and any oil marks that were on the table.  I decided to paint a cream all over the table and than add a soft pumpkin paint in all the creases and around all the edges.
Here she is and she reminds me of a creamsicle. The table really looked nice next to my warm orange kitchen walls.  I think painting the table details in a soft orange really highlights all the details this little table has.

The top of the table still showed some of the inlaid design that I painted over so I decided to brush some orange across the top and it did camouflage the inlaid design and added a little bit of interest to the top of the table.
It kinda reminds me of summer, doesn't it you?
So, what do you think?  Better or worse?  Until next time, Dianne.......

  2. What a lovely combination of colors. The pumpkin gives the cream a delightful pop. Very nice job on this piece. I saw your post on Elizabeth & Co. Ann Marie @ Iris Abbey
