A Little Cloverleaf Table

I found this little cloverleaf table not too long ago…
maybe two, three ,  OK, OK a few months ago…..
unfortunately that is “not too long ago” in Miss Flibb speak….
I have a sideboard buried in the garage that is one year old 
and an armoire back in there that is 1 1/2 yrs old….sigh…

Honestly, I AM truly trying to finish the pieces I have but I keep finding great deals and getting more!

I kept walking past this little table and trying to hear what it wanted to be…
Yes, my furniture speaks to me and I listen too…..
That’s how the little hymn table turned out so nice…remember?

At first I thought cloverleaf wanted to be nautical. I looked for the perfect nautical thing to put on the top that would look right with the shape…
no luck….

Then, when I was downloading the pictures for the MMS Milk Paint to add to my color chart….
I kept seeing that little twining vine thing she painted on the Mustard Seed Yellow Chest and the Typewriter chest….and I thought…
“That’s it!” The shape is perfect for that!

First two coats of ASCP Duck Egg Blue

Then I drew on and painted the design with a linen colored acrylic paint

I did a bit on the side too…

Then a bit of sanding and waxing…

All done!

It doesn’t even look bad next to that French chair I did earlier…even though the chair is gray….I like it!

A nice easy project!
Now for this one…..

It’s been talking to me….maybe it will be ready by Monday!

  1. Lorraine, I love it! It’s a good thing that you listened real close to what the table wanted to be, because this is definitely it!

  4. I haven’t seen one, either, but it’s really cute! I love what you did with it. Sometimes a piece just tells you what it wants!

  5. How’d you do that? The paint viney thing and get your furniture to talk to you?
