Well technically it is a wood table with some straw features on the drawers, the top plus some faux leather pattern on the side BUT oh well we shall still call it wood.
The point is this table is just beautiful so we don’t really care if its wood or not!
The minute I saw it I wanted it and I know I say that about every single piece but this one I really am in LOVE.
It’s this two part piece with the bottom part as a separate table and the top part like a “trunk style” box placed on top.
This is how it looked before
It had some rough areas around the edges and the corner but nothing so serious that some DIY couldnt fix.
So this fella got the Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan treatment.
I ordered the beautiful Napoleonic Blue , Abussion blue which is this beautiful turquoise teal color and Emile Chalk Paint.
Also to finish off the piece the wonderful White Wax by Annie Sloan.
To start off, the the base got two coats of the Napoleonic Blue.
The paint glided on oh so smoothly, I didn’t really want it to have a perfect paint coverage since I wanted to give off that “semi distressed” look.
The top part of the table where the straw feature was got some Aubusson Blue. The color is the perfect Turquoise/ sea green color and the front got the same Napoleonic Blue as the base.
This is how it looked after one coat of the paint.
I took off the handles off the drawer and gave it a coat of the beautiful Metallic Gold Cream from Country Chic Paints. I also used it on this nightstand which you can see here.
Seeing how beautiful the handles turned out and knowing how easily I fall for anything Gold I couldn’t resist and had to paint the front two drawers as well as the entire border of the top of the table with the cream.
The final step was to give it a coat of the wax.
And it was All Done.
The Gold made all the beautiful details just POP.
What do you guys think?
I like how you can see the wood color slightly peeking through which is exactly what I was trying to achieve.
Now I just have to think off where to place this piece of Beauty.
