This furniture makeover was inspired by skimmed wedding cakes.

Have you seen them??

The rustic skimmed edges with a pile of flowers on top…stunning!

The only issue I see is…what about the skimmed off frosting???  Do you get it on the side??

The frosting is the best part.

Once a month I have the joy of joining a talented group of furniture painting ladies for a themed furniture makeover.  This month the theme is “Shades of White.”

This is the table for my makeover.  I bought it at a yard sale for $7 about 15 years ago.  The top is a veneer disaster…

and I love it!

Since I’m planning on lighting up our living room this was perfect for a furniture makeover shades of white!

If you haven’t seen a skimmed wedding cake just do a search on Pinterest.  You will be amazed.  Just where are they putting all the extra frosting??

Anyway, I started with a firm white base.  Three coats of leftover white paint.  I wanted the base to be covered in white frosting paint.

Then I painted the middle legs with two coats of paint.  The legs will be rustically distressed.

The top edge of the table was also painted with three coats of frosting paint.

The apron area was painted and…

immediately wiped back.

I was having a bad camera day and the pictures during the painting look like I was…

eating cake!

Then I dry brushed lightly for the skimmed frosting affect.

The top was dry brushed.  It felt like the pile of flowers on top.

Plus I still like the veneer disaster. 🙂
