Demi

This cute little half table was another piece from a truckload of furniture I got a while back.  I don’t know if this one is all that old but it is in really good shape other than a few chips on the front edge.

I decided to go with a lighter look for Demi this time.  Rather than sanding the old finish off, I opted to paint on a faux wood look with a whitewashed finish.

Demi is pretty small at only 28″ wide, 13″ deep, and 26″ tall.  This would make a cute little hallway or entryway table maybe with a mirror hung above it to give it a little more height.  Or you could find a cute wall planter like the one I used!

The wrought iron wall planter hanging above the table is one I found at our local Country Fair Mall.  If you live locally and haven’t been there you should definitely go!  They have a lot of vendors selling antiques, collectibles, and flea market items.  I was actually hoping to find an antique wrought iron planter for my patio fence but I couldn’t seem to find exactly what I was looking for.  This one is not an antique but when I saw that it was only $16 I decided I could just paint it to look old!

I didn’t like the shiny black so I spray-painted it with a dark brown base coat.  Then, I randomly sponged on chalk paint in a celery color.  I used acrylic craft paint in a rust color, dabbed on and blotted with water to give it the rusted effect.  Then I randomly sponged some dark brown craft paint for a chippy appearance.  It’s perfectly paint-chipped and rusty for me!  I will probably spray it with a flat finish clear coat if I decide to use it outdoors.  For right now, it made a good staging piece for the little Demi table.

Thanks for stopping by!  Let me know what you think of Demi
