First off our coffee table project. I found a wood table stored away in Dads shed. It had been there for about 2 or 3 years and had some bird poop and cob webs on it but after cleaning, sanding, priming and painting, here's what it looks like:
|Colour: Benjamin Moore Blue Nose|
I've never really been a fan of blue so I thought it was a pretty bold move for me. After a tiny freak out after the first coat I've gotten used to it and I think it adds a lot of character to our fairly neutral living room.
Next, we headed to the bathroom upstairs where I had picked out a reddish orange colour. Again, really excited but i am a huge fan of neutrals so I was scared... especially because the wet paint looked a bit more bright orange than I hoped for.
Here's a few before shots of the bathroom colour (not the greatest pics, i know):
and here are some after shots... i LOVE this colour. I'm trying to think of everything I could possibly paint this colour:)
|Benjamin Moore "Rust"|
I thought the colour matched the orangey red colour in the curtain so good which is what I wanted to happen. The second pic you get a bit of an idea of how the colour looks with the countertop
and here's what these two were doing while I was taking pics of the finished projects... aren't they cute:)
