Are you still tired from all the 4th of July festivities? It was fairly quiet at my house. We went out to dinner and then came home and watched my neighbors shoot off fireworks. They had some professional looking ones too! We cooked out last night and then I made an apple cobbler in honor of the holiday.
During the extended holiday weekend, I decided to do a makeover to my coffee table. For years, I've been pondering the idea of painting the top of it. I've taken baby steps and last year painted the legs white. I thought that would be enough, but then I got the idea of adding a soft blue to the top of it. Since the table is surrounded by so much white, I felt I could use a pop of color in the center of the room to jazz things up a bit.
And, I'm very happy with the results. I used the same blue color that I used on the chest in my foyer along with a dark wax to tone down the brightness of it.
It is much too baby blue without the dark wax! The color is CeCe Caldwell's Memphis Blue.
I like how it no longer blends in with the wooden floor.
I also recovered the chair cushion in my antique chair. I cut a piece of vintage grain sack to cover it. The good thing is that I still have plenty of grain sack left so I can display it or use it for future projects.
I added my vintage crate (from Decor Steals) on top of my coffee table and filled it with glass jars of white flowers.
It looks very country prairie to me now.
So, what did you do during this long holiday weekend?
Thanks for stopping by.
