Two Tiered Cobalt & Cozumel Table

Well, she's done! I think Cobalt and Cozzy came out pretty good. I started just knowing I wanted to go the route of dark blue, and I think the warm weather over the weekend inspired me, and this piece just went tropical. I couldn't help it! I had a few different ideas, and I was even going to do a black eyed susan side view silhouette on the top, but refrained. I still wonder though........

Anyway, check out the pictures:








 Here is the before picture:

Hope you like it, have a great day!

  6. Thank you Marilyn! I'm glad you're inspired. I used latex on this table. I sanded, primed, and then began my color layering (see yellow). I lightly sanded inbetween coats which was a great help. Here's a tip to try, if you want more of your under-layers to show, try rubbing the areas with vaseline or candlewax before painting the top coats. It helps that top coat slide off easier to reveal the under coat. I didn't do that with this table, as I wanted just a light touch of yellow. I used a sanding sponge to distress, and I love them!
    I'll head to your blog now :)
