At Haven, I was fortunate enough to win a sample size of Duck Egg from ASCP.
I knew exactly what I was going to paint with it!
Do you recognize this coffee table?
Because it used to look like this.
I painted and stenciled it a few months ago and it's had absolutely no.interest.
That's ok. Sometimes it happens. But instead of sitting around waiting for it to sell, I decided to use my new paint as an opportunity (especially after talking with Cassie from Primitive and Proper, who had the same problem with a dresser she did). Thankfully, ASCP doesn't require any sanding or priming. So I just painted right on top of the old finish and then distressed with sandpaper.
I even left the same paper in the drawer.
The legs and corners on this piece show the perfect amount of distressed detail.
I alwasy get email from people asking me what tools and paint I use. Thanks to the people at Purdy, I got to try their amazing new XL Elite brush! This is a great brush. The paint goes on so smooth and cleaning was a snap.
If you're just starting out painting furniture for yourself or as a small side job, I would definitely recommend getting a good, quality brush. It's an investment at first, but the Purdy brushes last and the paint job is amazing!
So thanks ASCP and Purdy for giving me the chance to redo this amazing table :)
It's for sale in the store if you're interested!
