Last week I worked really hard to get my stash of furniture finished and cleared out, only to fill it back up again. ANY WAY…I had this plain oak set that really needed some attention to make it something special. The ladies from Red Hen Home and 4 The Love of Wood inspired me with their french script pieces. I knew this was the perfect set for that look.
Uh Oh! I Completely spaced it on the before pictures but think plain jane oak and you got it!
I had to change my plan a couple times to achieve the look I was going for but in the end I could not be happier!
The side table and the bottom of the coffee table received the Annie Sloan treatment in Graphite. For the coffee table I stripped the top, burnished, and filled in this awesome french graphic from The Graphics Fairy. I distressed, stained and then used a wash of the Graphite paint to age the top more. I love how what took me HOURS over a few days to do I just crammed into 2 sweet little sentences. Ahhh well. Next, a few coats of polyurethane and I have a lovely set of french inspired tables. This is my most favorite rehab to date!!
