There’s yet another winter storm forecasted for later this week. Admittedly, I am not totally devastated by this news. Why? Well, because I’m bringing the spring indoors with perky pastels and pops of color to pass the final stretch of winter. Plus I’m planning a trip to the Philadelphia Flower Show to get an early dose of spring gardening. Assuming the winter storm doesn’t get in my way.
At any rate, I’ve been having a ball with the new European Colors in the MMS milk paint line. Today I am sharing a coffee table updated with Bergere. It is a bit of a smoky light blue and pairs well with white wax for a beach cottage look.
The table base was painted with 2 coats of Bergere with the addition of bonding agent. The chunky turned legs remind me of a cross between farmhouse and beach house style. Ryan built and stained the top. It is a big, sturdy piece that will be around for years. Imagine the hours of Monopoly that will be played on that thing. This piece will be for sale at The West End Garage.
Monkey fist knobs are a great accessory. I love these. We now carry them in both locations in various colors. They are all hand-knotted and made in the USA by a small family owned business. Aren’t they fun?
Did that tray catch your eye? The colors are just perfect. It is made out of reclaimed barnwood. We have a few of these available in the chippy blues seen here.
P.S. I am searching for the first mate that pairs with the captain lamp seen here. I put out an SOS on instagram with the mate’s picture. Let me know if you see the first mate lamp for sale! We need him.
