Recently I have been searching for a coffee table to replace the wicker table I previously had been using. My teenage son referred to it as “gross” so I knew it was time for it to go and be replaced by a non-gross one.
I had my heart set on finding a round table but when I spotted this octagon shaped one at the flea market, I knew it was the one.
This is a close up of the top. Interesting pattern….it reminds me of a rock bed.
The silver wood table with its removable painted glass top and cane bottom shelf was in good condition but I wanted to put the Marlee touch to it.
Using some turquoise paint I had on hand, I painted all eight sides. And no, it is not chalk paint. I may be the only person left on the planet who has not tried it yet.
I dry brushed the turquoise on and wiped it off with a cloth so that some of the silver was still visible. The plan was to sand it when it dried, but my expertise in painting (HA!) gave me the look I was going for.
I didn’t want to paint over the glass top so I covered it with burlap as a temporary option.
If you have any ideas for the top, please share them with me because I am at a loss on what to do next.
Thank you so much for visiting. Have a blessed week!
