Whimsical Turquoise Coffee Table w/ a little Bling

It’s been a cold snowy winter in our neck of the woods with temperatures and wind chills in the negatives.  With a blizzard in tomorrow’s forecast, I’m looking forward to the lazy hazy days of summer.

I picked up these drawer pulls for another dresser but ended up using them on a coffee table that was started last summer.

It had a sterile white factory finish when I bought it.  One of my friend’s painted it gray then I layered over it in turquoise but the turquoise was way too bright for my taste.  I covered it up with a drop cloth and have been using it as a work bench ever since.

I kept imaging this piece in a lake shore cottage so I busted into several new colors from American Paint Company and poured some of each onto a plastic take-out container. I brushed them on with no real rhyme or reason, layering them and dry-brushing until I liked the way it looked.

This is the result.  The primary colors I chose were American Paint Company’s Treasure Box, Voyage, Waist Coat, Beach Glass, Surfboard, Blue Jeans, Limoges and Parchment.
