Flower Power Side Table

Flower Power!

Here’s a little novelty table I started on New Year’s Eve.

Flower Power Table

It’s just the right size to be an end table, a coffee table, a bedside table, or a little tea-table for a tea party.  Now that I think about it, I might have a little tea set I could display with it.

I have this at the Flea Market at the Cleveland County Fairgrounds here in Norman. We’re open from 8–5 every Friday and Saturday until sometime in February.

I didn’t set out to create this chippy base, but I really like it.

This “all wood” table is actually made out of particle board which is why I went so all-out on the painting. I figured I could repaint and start over if it turned out not to be so great. I had no idea I would love it so much.

It looked pretty good after Stage One (above) on New Year’s Eve, but I really like it after Stage Two.

I used at least four shades of pink, two shades of purple, five shades of yellow/orange/red, and one Key Lime Green! Can’t wait to find a piece of real wood to work on.

If I still have it after the weekend, I might paint a chair or two to match. I think an adult chair and a child’s chair would make a great trio. What do you think?

I’ve linked this post to Redoux Interiors. Check it out!

    I painted some stools yesterday that pale in comparison to yours. Your little table is wonderful.

      H Carol,
      Thanks so much! And I pinned your stools. I love them! In fact a friend is “getting rid” of a couple and if she has no takers at the end of the day today (we’re set up at a local flea market) I’m going to abscond with them and follow your lead. My mind is buzzing with words I want to use. And I want to try the polka dots you mentioned. I put a fleur-de-lis on top of a little footstool not long ago, https://janmadeit.wordpress.com/2012/09/28/paint-with-fonts/, and sort of traced it instead of going the stencil route.
      By the way, I tried to comment on your post but couldn’t get a comment box to open up. But I’m following you now so I won’t miss your next project!
      Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
