Cobalt Got Hammered

I found this little table recently at a yard sale...
 I had a beautiful gift wrapping paper in a blue & green floral that I've been wanting to decoupage on something. And, since the top of the table was not in the best shape, I decided the paper would be perfect for this project.
 So, I decoupaged the paper onto the top and painted the rest of the wood with the color, Cobalt Blue, from the Dixie Belle Paint Company.
 Then the cobalt got hammered. Hammered Copper that is!

I used a Q-tip to add Dixie Belle's Gilding Wax in the color, Hammered Copper, along the lip where the paper meets the paint.
 I used my finger to add more gilding wax to the raised areas. I added more gilding wax to the metal base to brighten it up.
 I also added a few little touches of the wax to the paper.
 Once finished, I sealed the table with Dixie Belle's Gator Hide.

Getting hammered was just what this little table needed!

  1. What a sweet yard sale find! I'd be doing the happy dance if I found a table like that. Wow, LOVE the makeover, Virginia! Night and day transformation. The wrapping paper is so pretty, especially paired with cobalt blue.

  2. Love this! Your last photo is fabulous, too!!!

  3. It's projects like this that encourage me to keep trying to complete my upcycling! Great job!

  4. That is such a cute little table. It looks nice painted blue, and I really like the design on the top of the table. Blue in the home is so charming, and I have a few blue items here and there as well. : )

    Enjoy the Summer days.


  5. I left a comment here before, but I guess it didn't go through. I really like your little table. The blue color is nice, and the design on top of the table is pretty. Blue in the home is charming, and I have a few blue items myself. : )

    Have a nice Summer.
