A paint job for una mesita

A poor little side table, with many years of service behind it, was looking and feeling a bit worse for wear so I decided to get to work on a little up-cycling project.

It was a bit wobbly which only added to the eh... interactive experience.
It also had a few cracks, but don't we all?
A quick wash, a quick sand, and then we got the job done, check it out.

Its started out a bit 'Hulkamania' but turned out a bit more 'Viva España'
I was happy with how the base colours turned out so decided to leave it at that (I didn't run out of paint, I swear). A nice simple geometric separation of the features, with the possibility of extra details to be added in the future.

Would this suit your house? i'd imagine not... (if so, I'd love to see your house!) but it's certainly a bit funkier than before, so it's mission accomplished. Let us know what you think or get in touch with any questions you might have.
