Feeling Blue

Funny title to my post because in no way do I feel BLUE...I am feeling quite splendid today. My title refers to a make-over I just finished. I found this cool vintage side table (I think that is what it is) its very 50'ish looking, but I wasn't feeling the brown wood look. So began my newest furniture make-over.

Here's the table before I got my hands on it....
 
 
 
Not a bad looking piece right? So I sanded and sanded some more
 
 
had to get the handles off and try and remove the indentions from the handles...wanted a fresh base

 
then I thought I would paint it cream and add some color to it - so I grabbed my handy spray paint and got started

 
worked on the top and then was scheming about what other color or design I would add to the piece to make it look cool and fresh...

 
Don't laugh. I really liked the coral and aqua look and thought I would throw in the gold but shoot if it didn't come out funky...I was bummed so I re-sanded....and then decided to a MOSTLY one color - color scheme.
 
 
Hence the FEELING BLUE - see doesn't this look MAGICAL??? I am so in LOVE.

 
I added gold paint to the handles and the front feet (which you cant see) of the dresser/table and my sweet husband made the vase for me because I needed a prop - again with the gold spray paint.
 
Up close shot of the vase....and in case you are just smitten with the pear - I made it ---it's made of clay. Pretty? I dig it. So here on this blog you'll see the GOOD & the BAD and even the UGLY :)

I love that color blue! I would have never guessed I'd like the final product so much after seeing where it started. Great job.

Love the color blue! And the handles are nice, I think they look like fish. I give you lots of credit with the sanding and refinishing - that is one thing I have no patience for, am quite a disaster when I try it.
