Green Vintage Accent Table

Fall has arrived y’all!  Beautiful color is popping out all over, and today’s green table project was inspired by it.

This table was painted to demonstrate a simple finish with only 2 products.  I got the table for $15 from the same friend of a friend’s garage sale where I got last week’s table.  I cleaned it up well, and got to work on it.  The whole project took about 1.5 to 2 hours to complete.  Totally do-able, right?

I painted it live on Facebook, and you can check out the video here if you’re interested.  Sorry for the blurry before photo; I pulled it from the video because I forgot to take a photo.


Knowing I only had 2 products, I had to make them count.  So I chose this vibrant Christmas-y green called Evergreen for my color.  It had pretty good coverage in one coat, but I probably would have done 2 coats if I wasn’t demonstrating the finish on a live video.  But the finished look was distressed anyway, so any peek-through areas ended up looking intentional.

I love the curvy legs and center detail of this table.


For my second product, I chose a brown glaze called Van Dyke brown.  I haven’t glazed much before, so I was basically experimenting.  When the green was barely dry (maybe even not-so-dry?), I painted on a pretty thorough coat of the glaze.  Then I used a paper towel to wipe it back in areas.  Because of the newness of the paint job, some paint came off with the glaze.  But I ended up loving the look.  Glazing and distressing were combined into one step, and it was a happy accident!

Now let’s talk about that staging.  My hubby and I had picked up some staging supplies at Home Depot, including 2 of those red brick panels.  My plan is to texture and paint them to look like cream city brick.  But so far I haven’t found the time to do it, and I was just dying to try out my new set-up.  So the wall is red and the bricks are running vertically.  I know.  Not ideal, LOL.

But I do like the wood floor, and how the colors are all popping.  It’s pumpkin time!  I’m definitely motivated to get those walls finished, so I can make my photos more profesh.

EDIT: Here is a pic I snapped with the bricks running horizontally after the wall was complete.
