Patti is still decorating her newly built beach house.
She brought this sofa table over and asked me to paint these stripes on it.
She chose a denim color and a lighter aqua blue for the stripes. The contrast of the colors just made this for me.
I LOVE the way it turned out!!!
I think you can see in this picture that I sanded and distressed all the edges, just a little bit.
Before she saw it, I sent her a couple of emails telling her how CUTE it turned out...just teasing her. But, I wouldn't send her a picture. It's always best to actually see the piece.
This is the table "before".
It is long and narrow and I loved it the way it was before I painted it.
Patti LOVED the new colors and said it might be her favorite piece that she's had me do in a long time.
I suggested that she tell her grandbabies that this is her "cat in the hat" table.
When she picked up this table, she brought me a HUGE beautiful mirror to paint a light orangey color.
Remember orangey colored dreamcicles?? I wonder if they still make them. When I was a little girl, I could hardly wait to spend my nickels on a dreamsicle.
