Welcome to the Red, White and Blue Inspiration Tour!
As hard as it is to believe … the 4th of July is less than a month away!
This week, join my blogging buddies and me for some patriotic ideas to spruce up your home!
I found this table for … free from a friend.
It was pretty scratched up, and it smelled strongly of smoke.
I removed the hardware, cleaned it up and got to work.
I painted the entire piece with Plaster Paint in Cobalt Blue — this is the first piece I have ever used navy paint on. I’m usually a turquoise girl, but I decided to step out of the box a little.
After I painted on two coats of navy and let it dry, I started taping off my stripes with Frog Tape.
Once my tape was on, I painted on another layer of blue paint to seal my tape down so it wouldn’t bleed (which isn’t normally a problem with Frog Tape … but just in case).
I then painted on my white stripes with Plaster Paint in Ivory Lace. I went over them twice.
I then distressed my whole piece and coated it in clear wax.
I spray painted my handles with Krylon spray paint in Cherry Red.
I think this would be super cute in a little boy or little girls room!
