I loved the look of Aurora on the Country Chic Paint color page but I loved it even more when I chose to use it on the base of a vintage solid wood table I had stripped and sanded. I stained the top walnut and the base needed a color that was “vintage” like but fun, and Aurora was perfect. The color is a deep teal which goes well with the refinished wood tones. I am dying to try it on a larger piece in the future.

A quick recap of the table re-love starts with the table top sanded down to the natural wood to eliminate the engraved scribbles and words and other unsightly marks. It then got a good scrubbing with soap and water and a scrub brush, rinsed and left to dry well.

I stained the top in walnut stain.

Aurora goes on the base, one coat was all it took to cover, the edges got a light distressing. Another in keeping with age step was using Danish oil to seal the stain and while I was at it, I gave a quick wipe over the body color which added a nice finish to the Aurora.

Lee Ann {Creative Moments}

Hello, my name is Lee Ann and I am the creator at Creative Moments. I have always had a love for vintage pieces and an interest in recycling/repurposing. Creative Moments became the outlet for both. Reloving a piece of furniture no longer in style, in disrepair or tossed aside into a “new, one of a kind” piece makes my heart sing. I love seeing these pieces becoming a part of a home, adding character and charm and providing years of enjoyment.
