Go Green

This table started out gold & gaudy!
It was actually spray painted metallic gold! WHY?!!!
Lucky for me, no one else wanted it, 
so I got it for only $5 at auction.

We all know that paint changes everything!
So, I picked Bayberry Green for the transformation.

If you've used milk paint,
 you know it does that cool chippy thing.
And, even though I didn't like the gold, 
I thought it might be cool to have a little of 
it showing through.
But, in this case, the milk paint didn't chip.
I decided that the table could use another coat of the green, so before I added another coat, I waxed the table.
After I added another coat of green, 
the magic started to happen...

I also sanded a little around the edges...

From gold & gaudy
green & gorgeous!
