Beach Cottage Decor Coastal Table Makeover
Wed 25th, Jul, 2012
Well G’day Beach Cottage lovelies, showcasing my drips today with the beachy coastal farmhouse table makeover progress…
This was all going mighty dandy, indeed there was some little touches of jigs around this cottage…
and all was planned…the legs would be pure beach cottage white, with a little piddle tad of runs here and there just for authenticity, smile*
…and the top would be, rather than what I said before, (which was waxed), white-washed with just a whisper of white grey….we were raring to go….
My professional painting assistant, ooops I mean man with a droop, I mean drip, aka Mr Beach Cottage, was all ready to go with the whitewash, there was much deliberation to the consistency…and much talking of how white it would and would not be…
…and then we put the top on her big old chunky white leggies and oooh, nup, hold it right there Mr Beach Cottage….errrrm not sure whether we should just leave this and wax as per my original plan or go for a more whitewashed look…
So now she sits here, in limbo
She hasn’t even had her legs scuffed up and I am not sure when that will happen before I get on a jet plane to leave these lucky lands and get myself to the Big Apple
What is going through my rose-tinted avec drips head is this : she looks kinda rustic and farmy left in her naked state, yeah, and I like that whole, you know, rusticy, country, scrubbed-table-and-chickens-in-the-garden with a touch of beach-cottage-coastal-down-under but I am thinking this may be on the orangey side……
You may have noticed that I like to foof, right now I am particularly partial to a leetle bit of food styling and foofing…and right on this table would be nice…but not with an orange background….that would need it to be white
And so as I am writing this I am back to going white….off to tell Droop ;-)
What do you think?
