Painted Turquoise Hall Table Makeover


Sometimes you just have to embrace colour and one of my favourite non-neutral colour for furniture (away from white, linen, putty, soft grey and black) is turquoise. I've done quote a few pieces over the years in this gorgeous part of the colour spectrum.  I think it's a gorgeous colour for furniture and while bright it goes with so many other colours that the piece will sit well in a room (well ...in my house anyway!)


This sweet little mahogany table is rustic but sturdy. It would be great for a hall way or side table, perhaps even a bedside table. One single drawer that I painted ASCP Country Grey.  It seems a good colour to complement the custom mix turquoise.


Love the legs on this piece  and the whole rustic nature of it. Beautiful imperfections...




Dimensions are: 80cm wide, 67cm tall and 40cm deep. Email me if you need a pop of colour in your life.


While we are talking turquoise I thought you might like to see some other pieces I've painted in this colour (although not all the exact same colour - most of these are custom mixes, I don't think you can really go wrong with these shades)

This industrial sideboard was one of the first pieces I painted and got snapped up pretty quickly.



A lovely long console table



Atomic Drawers



this little chest of drawers


I'm sure there is more I've painted but, see, it's not all white on my paint brush!

What colour is your favourite piece of furniture? 
I'd love to hear.

    1. Thanks so much Reeves. I am sorry I’ve taken so long to reply. I’ve been out of touch with our computer dying from a direct lightning strike on our house.
      I love your blue furniture! I think we have very similar taste in colours.

    1. Hi Beau
      That’s a coincidence isn’t it. I have had that happen a few times with other people also. It always amuses me.
      I was tempted to go with on mine but love the turquoise also. Hope yours sold quickly
      Sorry for the big delay in replying -i lost my computer to a lightning strike!
      Cheers Fiona
