Beach Makeover

I spent the afternoon with my sister changing out our space in the store
with a bright beachy look.  I repainted my wicker furniture a happy
green color and used a fabric with blues and greens for the pillows and
matching blue denim for the cushions.




My house was in too much chaos to take the pictures there, so this
is how our store space looks this month.




I refinished this darling coffee table with a very unique shape and lots of pretty
detail work.  It originally looked like this. 




I thought it might be a hopeless case because of the brown enamel paint with
gold paint underneath and numerous scratches on the top.  But after
several hours of sanding, I began to see it's potential emerge and now it
is white and distressed and a beauty to behold.




I set the table with these darling dishes called "Sail Away"  that I found
last winter at Goodwill, blue goblets and homemade napkins.




Tomorrow I'll share my white hutch with our other beachy accessories
that my sister so artfully arranged while I was running back and forth
transporting furniture.

The green wicker looks so happy and cheerful. I once painted a wicker rocker that color, and it was my favorite thing in the space.

I love that green wicker! Could you possibly share the exact green paint you used? Paired with that blue, it is simply stunning! The table turned out wonderful and really sets off the arrangement.

Love the green wicker!! I have an outside bench to paint and love this green. What color did you use?

Susan @ Busy Home Adventures said...

How fun and summery! The green really pops. I wouldn't have thought to use that color but it works so well! Love the white table and the tablescape. I'm a sucker for anything blue and white! Well done all around.

Popping by from Dittle Dattle. Following you!

It's hard to believe it is the same table. You did a fine job refinishing it.

I love that table! You did a super job in refinishing it. Your green wicker is gorgeous with the blue accents. Lovely!

Good move on repainting the wicker furniture! The color really pops out, and it matched the blue cushions and plates on the table. And the place looks inviting and bright. I could imagine spending some tea-time there to relax and unwind. [Gerry Bossier]
