I’m so happy to tell you that we have a new table in the kitchen. Well, it might be better to say that we have a new / old table .
If you follow along you know that I made our old kitchen table into a coffee table. If you missed it, you can see that transformation here. Which left me searching for a new table for the kitchen.
A few months ago I purchased this table from a friend for a client. Unfortunately, the table wouldn’t fit the space in my clients room.
So the table sat in my garage until I could figure out what to do with it, much to The Hubs dismay!
When I started looking for a new one, this table immediately came to mind.
I loved the details of the table, it’s shape and the fact that it could be a small round table to seat 4 or could be expanded multiple times to seat up to 8 or 10 people.
After a thorough cleaning, it was time to paint.
I honestly thought about painting it a bright happy color, but that would have meant changing up the kitchen. Not willing to do that!
So, I went back to my old standard, Annie Sloan’s Graphite with a dark wax.
I applied two coats, then a coat of dark wax to seal it.
So how did it turn out? I think it turned out fabulous!
I even love the oval shape, which kind of surprised me! The smaller, round shape was a few inches smaller in diameter than our old one and it felt too tiny.
This feels just about perfect!
I honestly couldn’t be happier with our new table in the kitchen and The Hubs is happy to have it out of the garage too!
If you love it, be sure to Pin it!
