Side Table Transformation

I am getting so excited for the upcoming Barn Sale!
I have been painting and glueing and living in grungy clothes for days it seems like.
I love every minute of it and can't wait to see so many familiar faces and meet some new ones. I hope you get a chance to make it out!

While going through my craft drawer digging for ribbon and knobs I found a sample pot of the ASCP they sent me with my order. The color is Country Grey and I started thinking what can I paint with this?? 
Then it hit me, a side table that had been waiting on a little lovin'. Don't you love this paint?
A little goes a long way. I dilluted mine with a little water and I got two tables painted..WOW!

Here is what she looked like before...

And here she is after....

I left the top its original color and just dry brushed the rest and finished with wax

I love how pretty and french she looks sitting in this corner.
I had enough to do another taller table for the other end and for no money I have a whole new look for the room!
Gotta love free!

 We get so much sun coming in these windows during the day. I am trying to decide on curtains and have since hung the bamboo shades in all three windows. I love the texture they add to the room!

Have you transformed anything lately? Its amazing what a little paint will do for something!

Have a beautiful day!!

  1. Love that adorable little side table. You did a great job on the finish.

  2. your table looks wonderful. I, too, have been working on a table for my booth. It's taken me three days and I finished it today except for putting the hardware back on. I love the way it turned out. Happy White Wednesday

  3. Very shabby/French looking little table.

  5. Great transformation! I love seeing before and afters. That's such a cute little table and you gave it a lot more style! I've painted several furniture pieces in my home too and never regret it. It's such a quick fix to something that was boring.

  6. Tiff, you have to share! You can't put ALL your beautiful restorations in YOUR home. I mean, really. Most of them would be perfect for MY home!

    Hope you're having as much fun as we are getting ready for the barn sale! TEN DAYS AWAY.

    Can't wait for one of your big hugs!
