Ta Da! Challenge # 15 Results
Since Nancy from Redondo Beach, CA was comfortable sharing with us how she stepped out of her design comfort zone, she wins the Daring Decor Challenge! Simple as that.
Her “fauxaic” table was colorful and creative, and I adored how she involved the kids in the project. Here’s Nancy’s photo and her table story:
“This is what we fondly refer to as our “fauxaic” farm table. It used to have white legs which became scuffed with black shoe marks over the years. When we moved to a new home 10 years ago we wanted a fresh start. I couldn’t get new furniture at the time but, we could make the old things feel new.
The maple butcher block top got refinished but I wanted something fun and exuberant for the legs with the look of a broken tile mosaic. My partner, Don & I painted the legs in glossy color bands and then did a blending on the apron. Then the scary part. With the kids helping, we covered the whole thing in pieces of masking tape leaving space between to look like grout and sprayed the whole thing in flat black. We held our breath as it dried. Then we pulled off the tape and voila! We love the fun whimsical look and the fact that it was a family effort is a big plus.”
Because face it, everybody likes a good decorating book.
