Modern Orange

If you know me then you know I loves me some orange! I have been dying to paint a piece of furniture orange for like foreva. Well, I finally did it.

 I found this little table at an estate sale and snapped it right up.

I snapped it up so fast I didn't really take a good long look at it like I normally do to see if it needs any major repairs. I overlooked a pretty messed up foot. 

And it was in front!

Thank goodness for Bondo, again. It has come to my rescue more times than I can say.
Yes, all that pink is Bondo. That is how seriously this foot was flawed. The wood looked like something had gnawed on it. I had to put about 3 layers on it to build it up over and above what I needed so I could sand it down into the shape of all the other feet. But now it is S.O.L.I.D. and level. Which is always good for a table.

So are you as happy as I am to see an orange table? 
I love the teal and orange combo. These colors are complimentary which means, when placed next to each other, they reinforce each other. In other words, they bring out the best in the other color. 

I also love that this traditional table looks really modern just by changing it's clothes. 

Of course I lined it with orange paper. If I'd had teal paper, it would have been a way tougher decision. 

I seriously love, love, love orange.

Always being renewed,
