Vintage do-over


Found this wonderful French provincial looking coffee table at a local vintage store a while back and immediately thought of Dear Eldest Daughter. She is getting married in May and they have purchased a home but are not living there yet nor do they have any furniture. She has been collecting pieces here and there that have been redone in a Shabby Chic look, sort of Paris theme. When I saw this solid wooden piece I knew it would be perfect.

I sanded it down, then layered the piece with flat black paint, grey primer, and finally an antique white. Once dry I sanded some of the areas that would have had the most wear over the years and VoilĂ !….an awesome vintage redo…and she loves it!  What a great find for $30.00.
