Imagine a lovely, curvy French provincial side table from the 70’s in all it’s dark wood splendor……unfortunately you will have to imagine it because I don’t know what I did with the pics. Again!
Whenever I shop the hardware stores I check out the “Oops” paint. It’s hit or miss. While shopping at Lowes last week I came across a gallon of grey. It was so light that I had to compare it to a white color card to see if it was really grey. It was! Just a whisper of grey (called Bay Waves). Sold. Not only was it $10 a gallon, when I took it to the register it qualified for a $5 rebate – awesome!
I painted the “frame” and legs in the grey. It still looked almost white.
Taped off the center sections of the table and drawer and painted those white.
Now it shows!
The handles were painted white then highlighted with silver guilding paste.
Waxed and ready to go.
Installed in the shop.
I have a feeling there will be a lot of grey furniture in the coming days. This table barely made a dent in the gallon!
