Last time my parents came to visit me, we went shopping in Pacific Grove and they bought this table from Blessings Boutique. My mom loved the vintage table, but when they bought it, the table had a weird kind of distressed finished with what looked like blotchy spray paint. I told my mom to just paint it white and we cold distress the edges when I visited her.
Unfortunately, I do not have a picture of the table before, but here is what it looked like after my mom gave it a fresh coat of white paint.
I am visiting my parents right now and we decided to work on her table in between upholstering some chairs. My mom has a nice pneumatic staple gun, so I am getting my difficult upholstery project done while I am here too.
Here is what the table looks like now, after my mom and I distressed the edges and applied a paste wax.
The tabletop is so pretty with a little distressing and reminds me of a shabby, old door. She is collecting small, vintage chairs to go with the table and we are going to paint and reupholster them next.
The cool thing about her table is that both sides fold down to save space. This table is actually for my mom's kitchen (I took the pictures in her dining room), where she does not have a lot of space, so it is perfect!
I found stuff my mom had lying around her house for a centerpiece - some seashells, a silver tray, candles and bud vases holding some pretty desert weeds.
