We've been clearing out the garage, one thing at a time. And so this involves fixing up some smaller little pieces that have been collecting dust and overspray over the last year or so. This unfortunate coffee table has obviously seen better days.
The wicker on the bottom is all broken, and the open panels on the top presumably used to have glass in them. If you saw this little gem on the side of the road, would you slam on the breaks and load it up to be your very own personal coffee table?
What about if you knew it could look like this?
Of course there's no pictures of this. So let's jump straight to the VINYL! You know we're going through a little phase of loving the woodgrain peeking through paint. A nod to all you wood purist out there. And our vinyl "dealer" Dana totally rocks. She whipped up this amazing leafy swirly vinyl for us, and we slapped her onto the coffee table. BAM.
Using similar techniques from our Profile Plaque project, we polyed over the vinyl.
Then painted a chic glossy black.
Then we slowly and carefully peeled off the vinyl, to reveal our beautiful pecan woodgrain!
And we love introducing exposed woodgrain to paint, and setting them up on a date. So far, we're a pretty good matchmaker! Successful relationships have been cultivated every time!
*UPDATE*... SOLD!!! ... that didn't take long!
