I was given this piece of furniture from my mom and to be truthful I’m not exactly sure what kind of end table, side table, magazine table it is. However, it had a beautiful top that was water damaged but that was it. The rest of the table was in great condition. So I knew with a little bit of love and paint, I could have it looking gorgeous again.
I began asking my readers on   which color was their favorite choice.

Preparing The Wood
Once I had the color nailed down, my son and I  got to chip off the top water damaged piece one bang at a time…
Creating A Stencil Design
I created my stencil using my  .
Then I got busy painting!
I recently   and I can honestly say I am in love. I have painted a lot of everything in my life and have used so many different kinds of paint, so I feel I am a pretty good judge of paint. I always shy away from painting furniture or large pieces because it’s so much work. The prep needed before you can paint is such a pain in the butt and time-consuming. Plus, then when you are finally ready to paint and start applying it, it always shows paint strokes (even if you use certain products to hide the brush marks), and the paint always pulls back up when you go back over it with the brush. So, you can understand my excitement when I finally found a product that required no prep work and applied like butter!!
I painted the entire table in  . Which is paint color #1 on the sample photos above. I think I am literally in LOVE with this color! It’s the perfect combination of gray and tan mixed together. I originally thought it would have a green hue to it because of the name “sage” but honestly it doesn’t.
