Creamsicle With A Surprise Inside

When I found this little table at a yard sale, I loved the style but it was in terrible shape...

 It was so bad that I had to get out the electric sander. It had been spray painted so the finish was very uneven & had lots of drips.
I chose the color, Apricot, from the Dixie Belle Paint Company & once I started painting, I ran into another problem. The tannins in the wood began to bleed through the paint in some areas.
So, I added 2 coats of Dixie Belle's BOSS. This blocked the bleed through.
 Once the table was painted with Apricot, I added Flamingo...

The drawers needed some love too! So, I painted them with the color Stormy Seas...
I added a succulent pattern to the sides of the drawers using decoupage tissue paper from re*design with Prima.

 This cute table sold before I ever painted it. The buyer saw the "before" on Instagram & said they didn't care what color I painted it, they just wanted it to be happy.
 And, I have to give the new owner credit for the title. When she saw the finished product she said it reminded her of a creamsicle.
 Luckily, she likes creamsicles...
& the table!
