Sneaking in one more!

I just finished this little table last night and of course I don't have a "before" photo b/c I always forget to take one. I picked this sweet table up at GW for $6.99. She's not solid wood, but I love the curves and design on top.

I love the color even though I didn't know about it when I started. It's Vintage Wine by BM. I'm doing a chair for my sister in the same color and got lazy since the can was already open.





Since posting this, several peeps have said it looks brown and when my mother in law saw it in person, she thought it was brown. It's clearly purple to me...which has me wondering what others see...lemme know! ;)

Enjoy and Happy New Year!!

It's a little of both; you know those in between colors like red orange and blue green. How about purple brown?

I see the purple in it. I have painted a table with a similar color. I love it.

Well maybe you could do a faux marble brown on the diamond inlay to match your flooring. Then it would definitely stand out as purple! ;)
