White and Gold Leaf Accent table

I am in love with this little table!  It was originally dark wood and has the prettiest curves. I wanted to make it both classy, timeless but with a touch of something special, so I decided on white and gold. Can’t you just see the potential of this adorable table from the start?White and Gold, Classy and Bold Accent Table

I decided to use Pure & Original Classico paint in Island White because it’s the perfect shade of white.  Who knew white could have so many variations.  Once the table was thoroughly cleaned, sanded and prepped I flipped it over to paint the legs and underside of the table top.  Next, I flipped her back over to paint the rest.  One thing that I really like about this paint is that the sealer is built into the paint and you don’t need to add an additional sealer unless you want to or unless the piece will be exposed to water (in a bathroom, etc).  Check out those legs!

Gold Leaf Foil Application

Once the painting was done I decided to try my hand at gold leaf. And oh my I think I’m in love. I managed to get a quick video of the gold leafing to share.


I applied the gold leaf on the raised details at the top of each leg as well as along the upper trim.  In fear of making it look gaudy, I stopped there to avoid using too much.  The plan is to keep the table classy and elegant and due to the delicate and small size of the table, I think it was the right decision.

Taking photos of this little beauty was somewhat of a challenge since the gold is a bit reflective and would bounce the light right off of it depending on how the light hit, so I made sure to take many photos. White and Gold, Classy and Bold Accent Table

Even though Pure & Original doesn’t require an additional sealer I did make sure to seal the gold leaf and I also added a thin sealer on the table top with Pure & Original’s Dead Flat Eco Sealer.White and Gold, Classy and Bold Accent Table

A Different View

It’s amazing how different a piece may look based on the color of the wall or backdrop. I also took a few photos with a lighter background. I even had a photo bomber this time. my-love, photo bomber white and gold leaf, gold leaf, accent table, painted table gold leaf, gold foil, painted table
