Another Before & After

I am in "love" with AS new color Coco! Remember I redid my family room coffee table in it HERE well I couldn't stop there. Next up the console table that houses all the tv equipment. I just love this color and love it even more after the dark wax is applied! I didn't distress this piece as heavy as the coffee table, just went lightly around the edges.


Here's the Before.....


Here's the After.....





I dry brushed Old Ochre on the inner door panels & side panels.



Replacing the little round knobs on the doors with these. Can't wait for them to come!








Two down one more to go. The small side table is next! Have a great week & thanks for stopping by!

Great color Martina. You are just in the beginning here of your painting spree. My husband has officially haulted mine LOL! That looks so pretty!

Andrea said...

I am seriously considering that colour for my hutch. The owner of the shop that stocks ASCP says it's very popular! It looks wonderful on your piece.

Lesley said...

Where did you order the knobs from? Might be just the thing I am looking for my bath cabinets.

Stacey said...

Wow the furniture piece looks so much more sophisticated. Great job!

Kelly said...

that is one amazing transformation! It doesn't even look like the same piece of furniture. I love it! I think anyone that wants to buy a new piece of furniture to replace one they're tired of, should just repaint it like you did. that's a wonderful change.

I love it's new look. I did smile when I looked at your photo's - you are just like me - after you have painted a piece of furniture - you will never put exactly the same things back onto it - there's always a bit of redecorating that takes place as well! Am I right? x Sharon

Cindy said...

Wonderful! Love the colors you used, really looks great!!!

Coastal Cottage Dreams said...

I love the color that you chose. Looks great!

Hi Martina ~ your console table and coffee table look so good and you really updated their look! I love this color too! I may have to finally order some chalk paint ~ I have a couple pieces of furniture that I would like to paint and this would motivate me to get going! You do such a nice job Martina!
