It’s Monday and I’m excited to share with you a restoration hardware inspired end table transformation I did! I’m easing back into furniture makeovers. I’ve been feeling so unmotivated with painting furniture lately, but I still have several pieces just waiting their turn. I was perusing a thrift store a couple weeks ago and came across a cute end table that was it perfect condition. My favorite type of find. I originally intended on selling it, but after I finished it, I couldn’t resist and it fits so perfectly between our two living room sofas. So it’s staying with us. 🙂 This was also the piece that motivated me enough to get going with my video tutorials again! I already did one on dry brushing last week, and the next one, on how to use dark wax is here!
This is how she started out:
After painting 2 coats of French Linen, dry brushing with a mix of French Linen and Pure White, lightly distressing and dark waxing, the finish is perfection.
This is my go-to technique for a Restoration Hardware inspired finish. It is neutral gray, but with interesting texture: an authentic time-worn look.
Found this cute white bust at the thrift store as well… only $3!
So, what do you think? Would you sell it or keep it?
