Aqualicious Hall Table and Mirror Makeover!

Hello lovely friends

I realised this is my 50th blog post, a milestone for my little blog!  Thank you so much for following along and for all your lovely comments, they warm my heart!  I feel so lucky to have had a few projects featured, including three in the last couple of weeks…  this is crazy exciting for my teeny blog.  You can check out my featured projects here :).

Now onto a Before and After Quickie!

I’m always on a mission to ban fake tan furniture… so when I came across this guy I knew I had to help him!  I fell in love with the shape and details of this piece..  and I knew he was destined for Aqua greatness!


The chair is part of a set of four which I refinished earlier this year.

Here’s the before…  well made, nice shape, bad fake tan finish 😉

I also refinished this lovely mirror in the same aqualicious colour.  I find it tricky to photograph mirrors, I usually end up with a foot or an arm in shot…  not this time but I do have the ‘leaning tower’ of cushies in the background 😉

Thanks for stopping by lovelies,

Jo xx

    that looks so amazing now Jo…I have a wine rack buffet thing in my home that is a similar style and it is on my to paint list…but paying jobs/projects keep getting in my way!

    I love how this came out! Perfectly coastal now. Love the color and the shape. Thanks so much for sharing at Silver Pennies Sundays. x

    What a beautiful color! Since the surroundings are mostly neutral, it really pops out! And congrats on your 50th post! I’m new to blogging myself and see how that would be a considerable milestone 🙂

    Love this color although I don’t have any of it in my house right now. I keep looking around for something to paint….(I feel like I want to insert an evil laugh in here)

    I noticed a few people asked what color you used but I haven’t found the answer. I’d really like to know name and brand of color I absolutely am in love with this color!

      Hi Ashley 🙂 Thanks. It was a custom colour I mixed using a base of a colour called Magnetic Magic (dulux) but I mixed in some white and some mid blue until I found the shade I was after. Jo xx

    oooh I love this colour too! Did you just sand back a bit when you were finished to give it the ‘rough/loved’ look?
    Fantastic makeover 🙂
