Coastal Blue Table

If you've been reading my blog for awhile, then I'm sure you know I'm a white kinda girl. White painted furniture sells well in my booth and I use a lot of white in my home so that's what I go with. But lately, I've been living on the edge a bit and have been painting pieces in black, light gray and charcoal gray. Still in the neutral family, but I'm taking baby steps. ;) I broadened my horizons even more last weekend and painted a table a gorgeous dark navy blue using General Finishes Coastal Blue milk paint. I LOVE this color!!! Simply gorgeous! 

I found this small table awhile ago and knew it would be the perfect piece for this perfect blue. 

Two coats of Coastal Blue, distressed, sealed with polycrylic and a stenciled top for a little something special and you've got an unbelievably cute table!!!



Every time I start painting a piece with legs like this, I always ask myself why I continue to buy pieces with legs like this. They are a pain to paint, but so worth it in the end!!'s just so pretty! 

I'm linking to the parties listed HERE and to:


  1. This is just fantastic, Melissa, the stencil on top just makes it look so classy. Love it!


  2. Very pretty, Melissa! The table turned out great and I love the stencil on top. I had to laugh because I always curse the leg on tables and some chairs I am painting, but, you are right, it is worth the aggravation in the end.

  3. Love this little table, Melissa! The stencil on the top is so pretty and that color is gorgeous! I hear ya about the legs, too. A pain to paint, but they are so pretty once they're done! Be sure to stop over and link up to the Inspiration Gallery link party on Thursdays! We'd love to have you there! :)

  4. The table looks great. I love the design on top. Great job.

  5. Love the legs & and I always ask myself the same question. And I love the color...I painted our sideboard in our upstairs hallway that color and love it. It is a great neutral amongst all my white!
