He made it using an old window shutter, stair banisters, and some blocks of wood, all from the ranch. Yesterday, my dear friend Alana and I decided to paint it.
After fueling up on Peanut Butter Chocolate custard from the delicious Kohr Bros., we headed to Lowe’s to buy some paint. We stood in the paint section of the store for what felt like hours, debating over the color. Our conversation went something like this:
Alana: “Do you like this shade of blue?” (Holding up an light blue sample)
Me: “Yes, but I also like this darker antique look.” (Holding up a slightly darker also light blue sample)
Alana: “Oh, wow, I can really see the difference in that one when you hold it up to the light”. (Just being nice- I don’t think the Color Wheel himself would notice a difference between the colors)
Me: “I can’t decide- Which one should I get?”
Alana: “I don’t know- which one do you like best? What about this color?” (Holding up another clone to the first option)
And so it continued. Yes, we are both middle children.
Eventually, we decided on this shade. It is called Sweet Leaf. I love the overall white feel with the hues of blue coming through.
First we primed.
One of my favorite blogs, Young House Love, suggested using an oil based primer, to ensure that the paint sticks and no stains come through. It worked well!
Next, it was time to add the delicate shades of Sweet Leaf…
We decorated it with my adorable Cath Kidston Tea Set. put it against those oh so confetti white walls in the living room and…
We have a table! Can you see those hues of blue?
