I love showing you this project because I want you to see how one little detail can change the whole look of this piece.
I painted a sofa table that is so pretty I would hate to hid it behind one. I think it would make a great laptop desk too.
This sofa table is a solid piece of wood with nice lines but a little plain for me.
I painted it in Annie Sloan Provence and Paris Grey. I used the dark wax to give the grey some grain effect. I used clear on the top.
The before shows the wood grain and color. I knew it had potential. After I painted it though, it was just too boring.
That is where these little babies came in handy, I was at Hobby Lobby and saw these in the clearance section. I thought it would make a great applique for my furniture. YES...they are for drapery. The wooden ones you buy can get pricey...so why not these?
Who says you can't use these for other things? Think outside the box. It is so much fun to use something that is meant for one thing, for another purpose.
That is what I did in this case. It was just what the piece needed.
One was all that was needed. It became a focal point.
I was going to paint over it but I think the silver gave it a little shine and complimented the colors.
I put my little blue chair with it to take the photo and I thought it looked great as a desk.
Remember it is always in the details! It is a far cry from the before picture.
What do you have lying around that can be used as a "detail" piece? I hope this made you think about it!
I can't believe we are in May already!! Time sure does fly! Thanks for being here!
