I usually do my feature piece on Friday but I was so excited about sharing What I Learned In Vegas that I skipped the feature piece. So I am pretending that my Monday is Feature Friday! Confused much?
This week’s piece is a Drexel Heritage side table that has a little French flare.
When I found this piece it had great bones and was very sturdy, but the top had definitely seen better days! Instead of worrying about it, I decided to just go with it’s rustic charm and use it. I like chippy, beat up, distressed pieces! Painted in Annie Sloan Coco and Old White , then a coat each of clear and dark wax this darling end table turned out pretty well if I do say so myself!
On the top of the piece I went to The Graphics Fairy and found two different French topography prints and married the two to get the top writing that you see. Not too bad!
This was my first time to use the ASCP in Coco. I think it is a great neutral that would fit in almost any decor. I am already looking for other pieces to paint, as I love how the color turned out. Also, I love the mercury glass drawer pull. I found it at Hob Lob. I just love their drawer pull selection – especially when they are 50% off!
Until next time…
