Blue is one of my new favorite colors. It’s so refreshing! Today I’ll take you on a journey of beautification: from garage sale unwanted furniture into gorgeous blue painted end tables.
Peek a Blue!
I gave you a little hint of this project last week when I showed you my teen daughter’s Framed Jewelry Display.
Here is what we started out with. Two little end tables from a local garage sale site for $30. Not too bad for two pieces of furniture.
They had a cute crackle/faux finish with some flowers painted on. But I looked a bit beyond that and loved the little curves of these tables!
I started with a wipe-down of Clorox Cleanup to get any dust or grime off.
My assistant was right there with me every step of the way! Checking and approving my work 😉
Blue Painted End Tables
I wanted great adhesion with no chipping, and that’s exactly what I got.
This type of paint shows the imperfect paint strokes, like a bit of a washed effect. And I thought the finish would look great in front of our new Chalkboard Wall.
MyLove doesn’t like for me to paint in the house but he was out of town for a few days so let’s just keep that between us, okay?
The color turned out a bit darker than I had anticipated, maybe I mixed a little too much. That’s okay, I still like it.
I’m crushing on those pretty curvy legs.
And a little surprise inside the drawers!
Fabric and ModPodge steps it up a notch, don’t you think?
I protected it all with a coat of Minwax Poly Satin Gloss.
The doors never made it back on and I kind of like it that way.
I am so glad I decided to photograph them outside because it really shows the true color!
The Hobby Lobby knobs look so cute!
A mix of light and dark blues!
Stuff that a young teen girl would love!
Now you can see a bit of my vision for her room.
Do I have a vision? Not really but I am trying to tie it all together somehow!

I am working off of this fabric and hope it does the trick.
Cheery, Isn’t it?

I love the brightly colored pillows!
I am so glad my daughter likes vibrant colors so I can jump out of my comfort zone for a while!
Any blue furniture in your house?
Have a great day!
