If you give a diy design blogger some Purdy paint supplies........
she'll definitely find something to paint with them.
You might remember the first makeover I gave this table when I experimented with making my own chalk paint.
I liked the blue, but I was ready for a change. I wanted something lighter and brighter so I chose white. I again mixed up a little homemade chalk paint combining some white trim paint and plaster of paris.
The paint went on super smooth thanks to that amazing Purdy paint brush. I'm not just saying that because they gave me the brush either. Seriously, painting furniture with a Purdy brush makes a world of difference! That slight angle of the brush makes it so easy to get into the corners. And there are practically no brush marks!
To make this console table a little more interesting I decided to use rub 'n buff in gold leaf for the top.
I brushed it on allowing a little of the blue to show through.
I love the subtle sheen.
And I added a little gold in another place too.
I've been wanting some dipped leg action around here for a while now. I love little details.
I'm really digging the new look of this console table.
Thanks to Purdy for the paint supplies! I've got big plans for the rollers they sent too! Purdy is currently running a You Can Save The Walls Sweepstakes where you can submit a paint question and have it answered by TV Design Star Lisa LaPorta and enter for a chance to win weekly brush giveaways and the grand prize, dinner with Lisa LaPorta in Los Angeles.
