Before and After: Basil Green Side Tables

 

Disclosure: all of the products in this post were provided by General Finishes. Side Note: I edited all of these pictures before I had my new logo, so that's why they have the old one.

As I mentioned in our last post, Before and After: Mid-Century Two Tone Dresser, we were chosen as General Finishes' 2016 May Blogger of the Month! We received some goodies from GF to try out, and I was SO excited to try some different color combinations. Unfortunately, because of my excitement, I forgot to take before pictures. Just close your eyes and imagine two dated side tables that had been painted a dark brown color. Ready!? Okay!

After sanding both side tables, I painted them with General Finishes Basil Green Milk Paint. To make the details pop, I distressed the edges and then glazed the pieces with General Finishes Winter White Glaze. This was the first time I've ever used a white glaze, and I really loved the way it turned out! For extra durability, I finished the pieces with General Finishes High Performance Top Coat in Flat.

The drawers had a combination of old paint and hand drawn pictures on the inside (delightful!), so I covered them with vintage sheet music that I found at a local thrift store. I simply taped off the area, sprayed the bottom of the drawer with spray adhesive, and put the sheet music down randomly. You'll have to add more adhesive in between the layers of sheet music. Make sure you tape off around the area because spray adhesive will go everywhere!
