Dropleaf Delight & A Maison Blanche Giveaway

Maison Blanche Paint Collette Side Table

 This little dropleaf table is one of my new favorite things.  It’s tiny, but packs a punch I think…kind of like me!

I found it on the side of the road last summer and painted it a beachy blue, but haven’t really loved it.  Then, Maison Blanche came out with a new color, Collette, and I knew it would be perfect for my little table as well as a few other items I have stashed in my garage.


See…this little table it is cute, but it isn’t fabulous.  It’s just…meh.


But now, after two coats of Collette and a nice coat of Maison Blanche wax…oh, she does sing!

Maison Blanche’s La Craie is a premium Furniture Paint. Our exclusive formula contains calicium carbonate allowing adhesion to almost any surface, and it truly does just that…sticks to virtually any surface without primer or sanding.  The wax helps to seal and protect your painted surface, and it also makes the color pop.

I didn’t actually use the Collette straight out of the can.  I am saving that fabulousness for another project.  I decided to mix the Collette with some Magnolia (Maison Blanche’s version of white).  I simply mixed 1 cup of Collette and 1 cup of Magnolia and mixed them together in a glass dish and this is the color I got…Magnollette maybe?  The wonderful thing about the Maison Blanche paints is that you can mix them to make different colors, and as long as you actually measure them, you can recreate the exact same color over and over again!


I now dub her Miss Magnollette, and  I just love her.  She is simply sweet.

 I can totally see myself sitting here reading a nice book and having a glass of sweet tea.

    Do people in Kentucky always throw fabulous furniture out on the side of the road? You have some amazing roadside finds. I’m so jealous. Ready to go curb-surfing on trash night around these parts to see what I can find.

    I love the color, I just saw the green color that Debbiedoo’s painted some of her items and I LOVE that color. I have some furniture that needs to be brightened up and fixed, this paint would definitely do that. I have to mention, I am not sure I am copying the URL for my Facebook share properly, but I have shared it.

    Your table is amazing…the color is amazing…and I would love to try that paint in the same color as your table.


  1. […] Here is the table before it got it’s little stencil makeover.  While this table is pretty in its original state, I think the stencil just takes my little table up a notch.  You can see how I painted it originally, HERE. […]
