Both french provincial tables are well made and solid wood, my first criteria to refinishing them. Although one is light stained and the other dark stained they will be coordinating soon.
Creating Matching End Tables
Not all pieces need be matching but they sure can be coordinating, take these 2 non matching french provincial pieces and see how they become a set.
after a good scrub to clean every surface inside and out, Fusion mineral paint ultra grip was rolled on and left to dry over night. Then FMP ash was rolled onto both tops in two coats.
The bases were painted Fusion mineral paint little lamb, a soft grey. Again 2 coats were applied.
Once all was dry, Homestead House ebony stain and oil finish was wiped on the top for added durability and a rustic finish. The base was distressed and Fusion's black wax added. The original hardware was cleaned up and put back on and these two beauties were ready for many new adventures.
Although they are not matching they are now a beautiful set perfect to add charm and function to a new home with a vintage twist.
