Pretty Gray Round Table

I came across this pretty round table at my local Goodwill. I loved it immediately! Just look at the details! It did not have a price on it. I'm always afraid that someone will snatch my find right out from under me while I search for a salesperson. I found the lady in green (I think I've mentioned her before. She wears green, only green, head-to-toe green, all the time, right down to her green nail polish!) and she sold me the table for just $7.00. I was so excited!







I know, it looks a little sad. But it was solid as a rock and really just needed a good scrubbing, a whole lot of sanding and a little paint to bring it back to life.












The pretty little details made me think French and that made me think gray, a really soft light gray.






I distressed the edges just a bit.






And applied my favorite white glaze and a coat of wax for a really soft dreamy look.



I just love the way it turned out!









My friend Beth is going to put this in her beach house. I think my little table will enjoy life at the beach!

I would love to know more about the glaze and the wax. I usually just slap on just paint and call it good. How do you and what kind do you use for the wax? Thanks for your help.

The lady in green, heehee. Reminds me of a gal way back when I was in grammer school. She always wore purple. Always. Every. Single. Day. I haven't thought about her in years! Maybe she switched to green somewhere along the line!

Darling table. Great job! Would love for you to stop by this weekend and link it up to Passion for Paint!

I also started a new blog this week - http://FengShuiSavvy.blogspot.com - if you're interested in feng shui.
