I've always been a white furniture kind of girl- always, always, always. When I found this table for $5 at Goodwill, I automatically assumed it would eventually be white. Fast forward months and months later, I finally found time to paint it and ended up with gold. Lately, I've been craving that unexpected color in furniture, outfits, you name it! I actually love the turn-out and I think it'll look great next to a future white/off-white sofa!
The primer is the main key here, it's an oil base primer from Zinsser. What it left me with was a perfect surface, after sanding of course, that will be an easy clean. Then I found a great gold from Rustoleum as well as a clear coat (which had trouble drying in some spots). So basically- sand, primer, paint, seal and you're done! I have a smaller version with a cushion top that I will be doing next!
