going once, going twice...

here is another piece that will be on the harvest festival auction.  you can read more about that here.  


the table was in good shape.  it appears it has a drawer, but really the handles are just decorative.  i mean, are three handles really necessary for a fake drawer?  


the top was scratch free, which was awesome because that meant i was able to leave it as is.  i used the same chalk paint recipe as in this post, this time in linen white by behr.  i applied two coats, which really helps make the paint more durable.  each coat of paint was followed by a thorough sanding.    


i glazed the entire paint and applied a coat of wax to protect it.


i finished it off by adding one pull, which i found at menards.  this table would make a great entry table, or even a small writing desk or a couch table.  obviously the possibilities are endless...here's to hoping it sells!

  1. Well, now it looks just FAB.U.LOUS... I am in need of a table of that kind... At least I will be when I move my furniture around a smidge.

    All the best,

  3. looks great now & I like the simple ring hardware on it now too! I just did a table like this in Annie Sloan Old White and distressed it a bit and I actually decided to put it in my office. It originally had double "handles" on it too and I left them all off but now I'm inspired by your ring hook I might actually add one similar to yours.Beautiful job!
