Geometric Painted Table Top

Hi friends!

Man, I’ve missed all of you!  Last week was a bear; I had a terrible cold, and spent all week in panic mode, trying to finish up all of the furniture projects I was taking to the Springfield Antique Show and Flea Market.  (The show was a success!  More on that later this week.)

I’m not gonna lie, I was NOT pleasant to be around, so it’s probs a good thing we didn’t hang out…

but it’s a new week, and I’m ready to share my entry in this month’s Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest!

September’s theme is “GEOMETRIC”, and the sponsor is none other than General Finishes.

I am new to General Finishes, having tried my first product just a few weeks ago.  So far I’m infatuated with Gel Stain, in both Antique Walnut and Java.  Gel Stain is both a stain and a finishing coat, and it works very well on all species of wood.

So…I found this cute little table at the local Goodwill store for $7.99 in August, and decided she’d be perfect for this theme.

Unfortunately I don’t have any “during” photos, as during this makeover I was popping cold medicine, blowing my nose, and whining.  A lot.

I started by giving the table top a good sanding (there was actually a painted eagle on top), and then “refreshing” the color with a coat of Gel Stain in Antique Walnut.

I painted the base in my favorite Oyster from Maison Blanche, and lastly, I randomly taped off some geometric shapes on the top and filled them in with paint.

This is the kind of geometry I practiced in high school.  Totally random, and usually wrong.  ;)

Fall is her favorite season too.

One of my favorite things about these monthly furniture challenges is that they force me to think outside of the box.   Participants are free to interpret each theme in their own unique ways, and it is so fun to see the variety.

    1. Thank you, Coco! I am so relieved to be feeling better, but now my daughters have this crud. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods! :)

    1. Thank you Jenny! My initial plan was to divide up the top like a pie, with perfect wedges, but I ultimate decided to go random, and I think I like it better!
