Breaking the mold - Painted Table

This weekend I broke out of the non 'color' mold.
Ya'll already know how I love my spray paint.
Changed up my drab coffee table with black, months ago.
Use a bunch of the famous heirloom white.
After seeing all the beautiful things around blogs painted in blue, red, green; I've been wanting to try color too.
And I LIKE it!
I picked this table up MONTHS ago at my local Goodwill.
Actually it is a sewing machine table.
$7
My thrifty little find has been used in my kitchen even though I've always had plans to paint her.
She gets dressed up for different seasons.
Saturday was a fun day full of hitting yard sales and a couple of Goodwill stores.  Yep, more to share this week with a yard sale score just up the street from my house. After my junk hunt, I stopped to pick up a can of American Accents spray paint - $5.
Moss Green Satin.
It's been beautiful weather here in Georgia, so between loads of laundry and making up several different salads today (veggie pasta, pistachio and chicken salad); I hauled my little table outside.
I removed the hardware.  
Painted the handle with leftover black.
Then painted her moss green.
Sanded the edges a bit for that worn look.
This was my first try at sanding after painting.
Did it work?
A cute side table for $12 total cost.
Brought her back in the kitchen and dressed her up.
The little bunny was a yard sale find, $1.
The black candelabra was 10 CENTS at a yard sale last year.
It was in sad gold shape til I painted it.
Tried out a couple of looks on her.The wicker tray basket, also from Goodwill for $2.
The tiny runner was found there also, but my ole brain can't remember the price.
I love the punch of color against my white.
The curtain was made by my mom and ties it all together.
Doesn't my thrifty little gal look pretty now?

I will be linking up to tons of great blog parties this week.
So be sure to check them out for other great ideas!
You can find a full weekly list and links to them HERE.
Plus there is a BRAND new (her very first week) party.
Check it out.

  29. I just purchased that exact table from the good will last week! I love what you did with yours! I am still deciding what to do with mine. The sewing machine inside still works well and will be perfect for teaching my children how to sew. That is a lovely green color...

  46. I have color phobia, too. In fact, I have painting phobia...always afraid it is going to get botched up! I love you brave girls.

    I like the shade of green of the table. It's perfect. And so is your vignette. I can't believe how well the table goes with the curtains!

  48. I have a table identical to yours. I was wondering if I needed to prime before I sprayed it the color. What did you do? Did you sand first so the paint had something to stick too, or were you good to go?
    Thanks for answering all of my nosy queations!
    Please, stop by and say hello!!

  63. Great color choice! I keep painting everything black too. I don't know why I'm afraid to try a color. If I don't like they way it turns out, I can always repaint.. with black!! I'll have to pick up a can or two of this. Oh, and would you care to share your veggie pasts salad recipe with me?
