Shabby Black - Not Your Grandma's Tables


These tables were originally plain, boring, simple and extremely beat up. I decided to give them a makeover

Tops were beat up, scratched up and dinged up. They were sanded down to bare wood but were still 'imperfect' due to the extent of the beating they had taken over their lifetime,

Base and body were hand painted shabby jet black and then distressed to reveal bits of wood underneath

A cherry stain was applied on the outer portion of the table top and distressed as well to work with the character of the tables using gelato gel stain in dark cherry

Pretty bird print applied to the drawer fronts gives an extra unique touch

The original wood drawer pulls have been replaced with black crystal knobs
