Painted Side Table



I found the cute little side table on Craig's List and thought it needed a new look.
 
I don't have a Before, but here I have already primed it and have started to tape off the pattern I want to create.
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
A little more tape!
 



 
After taping off the top, I'm ready to add a different color paint to the top.  I decided to not just roll or brush it on, instead I used a rag and sort of "dabbed" it on, creating depth and texture.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I used a couple of different (but very similar) colors of paint, this helped to enhance the depth and texture.
 
 
 





 
 
 
 
I added a few accessories, including a few little birds for springtime.
