Sometimes you don’t get things right the first time. Like this library table. I painted it a while back in a dark teal-green color and while it wasn’t horrible, I think it was just too dark for the piece. I lived with it for a while before deciding it needed to be lightened up a bit.
This time around I went with General Finishes ‘Persian Blue’ which I have used before on a writing desk and some nightstands. The color feels really beach-y and cottage-like to me with it’s blue, green and grey tones all mixed together.
Since I have previously prepped and painted the piece there wasn’t much prep work to do. I did lightly sand the finish so hat the paint would stick, but everything was already smooth. I painted on 2 coats of the Persian Blue paint with a brush and let it cure for a few days. To protect the finish I added a matte topcoat. Just a simple little makeover 🙂
