Black and Gray

Have you ever been inspired by something really simple? I found these really cute little black knobs at Marshalls. Yes, Marshalls. You just never know.









I decided to try a new color just to go with them - gray. I've never painted a piece of furniture gray, but I think it's definitely a keeper!












This color combination would work almost anywhere!

Like the gray! Question: did you paint it flat, or is there some distressing here? I couldn't really tell....
It's also a great shape for cute little table! well done.....

Pretty! Subtle and soft. I will have to consider gray for some of my projects. The knobs, they are so cute!

I love comments! And questions too. I almost always use semi-gloss paint. In this case I did a light distressing. And I like to make my own glaze, mixing a clear glaze with paint I already have, usually black, brown or white, but colors are interesting too. I'm trying to experiment a little more and your feedback is a big help. Thank you!

Great job! I love little tables with a shelf on the bottom. More space to decorate! Lisa

I never would have thought to paint it gray, but that is very striking. Love it!

I can't find a nice color of gray like this. What color did you use? Then you glazed it? Thanks!! Sue @awelllovedhome.com

Great transformation. I'd like to try the gray on a table I have. Can you give me the paint color and glaze details? Enjoy your blog.
