50 Shades of Turquoise ~ A Coffee Table Makeover

Hello there Coastal friends 🙂

Lovely painting weather in Sydney at the moment.  Spring has finally sprung and I’ve managed to finish up a couple of projects recently.  This one, a rather lovely coffee table with curvy legs and a curvy glass top.  Quite the hour-glass figure has this lovely lady 😉 

I bought her earlier this year, she’s sat precariously balanced on top of bikes, lawn mower and other garage paraphernalia for a few months now.  I decided her time had come. 

I had only one colour on my mind for this lovely lady;  Turquoise… they were destined for each other 😉

 
 

I heart turquoise!  I mean what’s not to love… It’s so fun and fresh, and lends itself so well to so many styles of decorating.  The shade I chose is called Magnetic Magic by Dulux.

Here she is before with a bad orange lacquer finish… Fake tan on furniture is never ever a good look!  Bye bye orange…

After… Hello lovely 

I love glass tops like this… not only does it protect the painted top, it allows for display of precious photos, or kids art and you can change it up whenever the urge strikes!

This piece is available, if you’re interested there are some more details on my Facebook page 🙂


How do you like to add pops of colour? What’s your fave decorating colour at the moment? 

Hope you’re enjoying sun in your part of the world!

    What i don’t understood is actually how you are no longer really much more neatly-appreciated than you might be now. You are so intelligent. You already know therefore considerably on the subject of this matter, made me in my view consider it from so many numerous angles. Its like women and men are not interested unless it’s something to accomplish with Lady gaga!
    Your own stuffs nice. All the time handle it up!
