Imperial Drum Table Persian Blue Milk Paint Makeover

Good Morning my BEAUTIES! 
What an EXCITING week it has been here at ART IS BEAUTY.
I am also excited because Today is THEMED FURNITURE MAKEOVER day
This Months Theme is Small Tables.

This was the table I started with.
I am from Grand Rapids Michigan which was Furniture City.
We had tons of Furniture companies here one of which
was IMPERIAL  Furniture.

This table was great....except the top~ 
The veneer was beyond saving.
It just peeled right off.
So in order to work on it I peeled all the rest of the damaged veneer off
and then sanded the top smooth.
Once the top was done it was time to paint.
I had never used Milk Paint before.....EVER...
I finally got to try some in General FInishes PERSIAN BLUE
and I LOVED it.
I have to say I was quite smitten with it.
I painted the whole table and then used some Gold Metallic paint to add some 
PIZZAZ to the piece.
I just put a couple grain sack stripes down slightly off center to give it a little pop.

I loved how it turned out.
I am also happy to say that it SOLD right away and is now
enjoying its new rejuvenated life in someones home.
Hopefully making their day BEAUTIFUL!
Be sure to check out all my bloggy friends who are showing 
of their table makeovers too.
