Ester Avery Table Lamp September 24th, 2018 - 02:28:48
So I picked it up for a whopping seven dollars and it is such a cool little table. It's got an oval shape to it and then the legs are really unique. They have a lot of detailing on them, which I absolutely love.So I was very excited to find that and then the second thing I found was a lamp which I found quite a few months ago. We probably will remember it from an old thrift store Thursday, but I knew that I wanted to use it in the living room somewhere and as soon as I got this table, I was like oh that lamp will look perfect on this table, so I was very excited that the two calendars went together, it just magically, so I gave that lamp which I picked up at the thrift store for four dollars, a quick little makeover as well, and I love the pair of them together in my living room.
So if you get started I'll, give you a look at both the table and the lamp and then I'll walk you through the steps I took in order to transform them into a style that would fit into my home and then in the end, I'll show you How I've used both of them to style them in my living room? I'm so excited to share this with you. So let's go ahead and get started. Here's a look at my new table.
Don't you just love the detailing on the legs? First order of business paint. I'M using an interior satin, finish paint by the Pittsburgh paint company, which I picked up at Menard. It's in the shade of linen ruffle, which is a nice creamy white. Before I started painting, i stranded down some of the imperfections on the tabletop and you can see the scuff marks where I've sanded, starting with the tabletop. I applied the paint with a brush of working my way down to the bottom of the table.
After applying two coats of paint allowing it to dry overnight, it was time to De-stress the table using fine grit sandpaper. I removed paint in some of the areas to help free out the detailing on the lakes and the table edges and finally, the last step on this table makeover was to brush on two coats of Min wax water-based protective finish and a clear satin finish to protect the Table and here's a look at the finished table, I think it turned out beautifully moving on to the lamp here's how it looked when I brought it home. So it wasn't too crazy about the leaf design running down the middle of the lamp. I decided to remove it by using a pair of wire cutters and hopes of giving the lamp a more streamlined. Look, it's looking better now to prepare the lamp for painting.
