So, if you remember, last week I shared the painting of the piano.
I had some leftover paint, and a coffee table that also sits in the music studio.
This coffee table belonged to my great-grandmother, and my mom was going to get rid of it. . .
and there was no way that I was going to allow that!
So I got the antique coffee table :]
Though, I will be the first to admit that it's pretty beat up:
I mean, imagine what it's been through over the years. . . I know that just my siblings and I put it through enough.
Nothing that a fun paint job can't fix, though!
I decided that I would go for the distressed look
[mostly because there was no way I was sanding the whole thing down
like I did the piano!]
I painted the whole thing in that same robin's egg blue color:
And then strategically sanded down the edges to make it look "distressed."
As a last minute addition, I decided to add some decorative detailing in a slightly darker shade of blue.
And then painted this bird silhouette:
And finally, the end result:
Though, it will probably always have music on it, like this. . . :]
