As you all know, I really love to paint furniture. So when a friend asked if I would help her with several pieces, I jumped at the chance. She said that this one piece was great, but had been sitting in the garage since she picked it up at a yard sale…4 years earlier.
I really love chippy, shabby chic furniture, but this black gate leg table was a bit of a chippy mess. The elements had gotten at it and it was all bare wood on top. But I like a good challenge:
And here, with some ASCP magic and lots of elbow grease, she is now:

The next step was Paris Grey. A really beautiful soft gray that my friend loved! I did a little light distressing with some fine grit sandpaper.

My friend was so happy with the new and improved table. I’m honored that she trusted me with her furniture. We are both so happy that this beautiful table will have a new home in the dining room and no longer in garage (I think her hubby is happy to get some space back in the garage too).
