Navy Blue and Gold Clawfoot Round Table

In true Ansley fashion I completed this table ages ago and just never got around to photographing or posting about it. Also in true Ansley fashion, I thought this side table was "the one" (well one of 2 needed!) for our living room...but yet again I'm thinking I will put this one up for sale. Mainly because I think I want the end tables white now...and I hate having to repaint a piece.

So without further adieu...le table! ha

This thing was originally straight out of the 80s, complete with sea shell accents. I removed those, so the piece could fit in with today's decor!

The shells weren't that difficult to remove; it only took a few bangs of a flat head with a hammer to pry them off. So much better without them!

This was kind of a test piece of furniture. It is the first piece where I skipped the primer! The paint itself is Valspaar paint and primer in one; so I wanted to try just that. After all of these months it has held up very nicely with just a coat of wax on the table top.

To satisfy my current gold obsession, I painted the balls of the claw feet GOLD! I've done that before on the chair for this vanity and on this table, but in silver. I think it gives the table something special, some interest that it would otherwise be lacking.

Now for some more pictures!!!

Thanks for reading along! If you're impressed even the tinciest bit, I'd love for you to share my post!
