Remember the vintage drop leaf table I purchased last week?
I sent it over to Ken’s workshop to be shored up, but Ken also kindly removed the drop leaf sides for me. I think these tables are so much more versatile without them.
So what do I do with the leaves? Well, remember my secret decorating trick from earlier in the week? When all else fails, hang it on the wall!
I decided this was a good time to use up some of my mostly used bags of milk paint. So I began by painting the first leaf in a combo of Luckett’s Green with a little Kitchen Scale thrown in.
I added a Farmer’s Market stencil that came from Donna at Funky Junk, and I just used a white craft paint for that.
The second leaf got a base coat of Kitchen Scale, followed by a second coat of Shutter Grey. And for those of you not familiar with Miss Mustard Seed milk paint, yes, the Shutter Grey really does look more like a cross between pale blue and grey.
You can just use the hinges that originally held the leaves in place to hang them on the wall.
So there you have it, some drop leaf signage. These are both for sale for $28 each at Eye Candy ReFind if anyone local is interested.
Meanwhile, the table itself is almost done. Stay tuned to see how it turned out!
