This fun little side table was created by Michele from Shelstring with Liquorice All-in-One Decor Paint and our limited edition color, Eggnog!

I found this lamp table piece at the thrift store for around $6. It caught my interest because I rent a retail space I call the Rustic Nook at a place called Sweet Salvage in downtown Springfield Oregon. The owner is always telling me to bring in more light, and it seems that every time I do, another lamp sells. So when I found this table, it served three missions:

First, to add light.
Second, to add display space.
Third, to add interest.

At first I thought this green sage color from CCP’s clay based line would be perfect for this little table.

Boring! Pretty color, wrong piece.

Not really accomplishing #3 on my list. I really wasn’t happy with the way it looked. Nothing to turn your head for.

So I used their clay based paint in Liquorice (It’s no secret this is a favorite of mine!).

Then their new fall color, Eggnog for some grain sack stripes and numbers. Now, Ooh La-La!

That’s when character became it’s given name.
*happy grin*

The numbers were inspired by using an old coffee sack to cover the lamp shade. I tried to go with a plain one, but it just didn’t look right.

Now I know this kind of style isn’t for everyone, but this table is a whole lot happier now then I dare say it ever was before.

You’re welcome little table. Pleased to have you! 😉
