Painted Paneling

I am so excited to share my latest project with y'all. I've been painting paneling at my boyfriend's lake house. 
So fun to watch it go from dark and dreary...
To bright cottage!

This was a tedious, time-consuming project but I could not be happier with the end result. This room will be topped off with some new light gray carpet at the end of this week. I will post additional pics when it's all decorated.

Project Details:
I primed the walls first with Kilz Latex Primer. This was against better judgement and direction. Oil-based primer is the best thing to use on paneling but I was in a bit of a time crunch with only 2 days to get this room ready. I simply didn't have drying time for oil-based. The latex seemed to work just fine I just hope the paneling color won't bleed through in time. 
I rolled on 2 coats of primer and then followed with 2 coats of latex paint. 
Wall color-Behr Dolphin Fin (eggshell)
Trim Color-Behr White Fur (semi-gloss)

Weekend Find

Loving this warm weather in the south because there are outdoor sales galore. I scored this little table on Saturday. Thanks to the rainy day on Sunday I've already finished it. As usual, i almost forgot to take a before picture. It was all wood like the top. I had already slapped on one coat of white on the bottom when i remembered to take the pic.

LOVE the spindle legs...I'm a sucker for any piece of furniture with these legs.


Top is AS Duck Egg Blue and bottom is AS Old White. One coat of clear AS wax to finish it off. So torn because this was meant to go in my booth to be sold. Love it so much i wanna keep it now!
