Console upcycling makeover

I knew the minute I paid to have our 40+ year old couch refurbished I would have to add something special around it!

I spent months on the hunt for a second hand console that I could up-cycle.

 

The Console Table was purchased from The Mill Markets in Daylesford, first seen on a day trip with my hubby and then purchased 5 days later after not being able to get her out of my mind.

 

To get her from drab to fab I lightly sanded the frame, wiped it down and then sprayed it with Rusoleum Black Spray Paint.  After a few days of drying I added the gold detail using White Knights Strokes range of oil based enamel.

 

Originally I was going to recycle her to a raw state but during the sanding process I saw a tin of Feast Watson Black Japan and the rest is history.  This console has three coats of the Stain and Varnish.

 

The glass has a slight chip in it but to me that is what gives it the #relovedproject vibe.  The brand emblem on this item is Circa, I'd love to find out more about this range of furniture after working on this piece.

Hi @EleventhCoastal

 

That Black Japan colour on the console is just fantastic and the gold highlights add excellent contrast to the overall look of the table. 

 

Thank you so much for sharing such a beautiful console upcycling makeover.

Hi Eric,

 

Thank you so much for such kind feedback, I really appreciate it.  I am so excited with how the black and gold have turned out, a combination I didn't expect to love as much as I do.  

 

Cheers

Kirst

Hi @EleventhCoastal

 

Sometimes it is the simple combinations that actually have a much larger impact. The black body, gold trim and glass top all combine to make a subdued but stunning display.
