Love at first sight

I fell in love with this little table while out searching for antiques….

Its not old – just cute with great character!  It’s oval about 16 x 12 and was already painted with Annie Sloan Paris Grey.  It also has a marble top – black with a little pink and grey.

As soon as i saw it i knew i was going to paint and gild it!  It was just a matter of what color…

So naturally i did paint it – it wasnt even in the shop for 24 hours before it got a makeover!

So here “she” is wearing some Annie Sloan Henrietta over Paris Grey….and then rubbed with some silver gilding wax and some kings gold gilding wax.

Voila, so Little Paris!

It’s important to remember that you dont have to paint perfectly – when you are distressing it gives you a certain lattitude to be a little free…

I am so enjoying painting!  I had forgotten how much fun it is and what a great creative outlet is can be.
