Let me start off this post by saying, holy HOT!  I'm glad I'm inside taking photos today and not outside painting - it's 95 degrees and humid, certainly not ideal painting temps!

I just wrapped up a fun custom project. A client of mine recently dropped off a pine side table. It was one of those 'build it yourself' kits.  It was gifted to her by a family member - and with the right paint, she thought it could make the perfect entryway table for her new home.

She requested Annie Sloan's Antibes Green paint.  Such a bold statement color!  We decided to pair it with some old white accents and generous amounts of distressing & dark wax.  The combination gave it the aged look we were going for.  And I love the new hardware she found from Anthropology!

Here are a few photos I initially staged outside.

This little table is going up against a navy blue wall in her entryway - talk about a BIG statement - such a fun way to greet your visitors!

  1. I love this on so many levels. I wish I was cool enough to pull off! This would look phenom in my navy blue living room!! Inspired. That's for sure!

  2. Oh my word! The first link in my party that caught me eye... I knew it was you! I love this piece! The green is bold and fun and the distressing is just tight. Such beautiful details. I just love it. You hit the nail on the head everytime! Wow!

  3. I hopped over from MMS today.

    I do love the Antibies (and cream and green color combo) because I too, LOVE bold colors. Your paint job AND staging are wonderful well.

    I just painted a vintage dressing table in ASCP Emperor's Silk (red) and a sage green. It's pretty bold too! Hope you have a minute to get on my blog and maybe check it out.
