Who said that painted furniture must be one color? Martha from Martha Leone Designs shows us just how extraordinary several paint colors can embellish an ordinary side table. As Martha did, you must decide if some parts of the table will be excluded from painting.
In her example, the top of the table was too pretty to paint so she left that alone and the top drawer. Using Annie Sloan chalk paint Martha painted the desk in green and used white for the accent and bottom drawer. Your colors for your decor may vary, but the overall idea is to make the piece special. The tones are rustic and these colors would work well in a modern farmhouse style, shabby chic, or rustic decor. If you like the look of chalkboard paint, be sure to read up on adding a finish to seal the surface. A little extra time spent getting the right paint and sealant will save you from having to repaint it again.
