Do ya'll remember this ottoman that I made a few years back? I bought an old coffee table from Goodwill for 20.00 if I remember correctly.
It was my first ottoman project, and while it was cute, all I saw was a crafty lady mess. She sat like that in the
project graveyard Tyler's garage for the past two years.
Until I saw one of my favorite designers Jamie Meares use one in her store, Furbish. It's called a Ming table, and while I usually don't just LOVE asian decor I thought I'd give it a whirl.
I wanted to paint it an exciting color, but alas all the fun colors I wanted to use were too much for my brown room. So what do you do when you don't have a fun color? Use a high gloss boring color! Works every time. I went to Walmart and got my handy dandy Rustoleum paint in Almond.
Enter old Ming table:
And here she is today in all her glossy glory:
I gave her a little rub too. Ya'll know I like a good furniture rubbing. I was hoping that I could cross over to a nice modern lacquer finish, but I'm just not ready.
Lastly, have you heard? If not, where have you been?! Tyler is making an album at the end of the summer! It is all very exciting. He has been working very hard and the songs show it. I can't wait for it to all come together. Until then go to: igg.me/at/tylernewberry and check us out!
