This vintage, side table came from a yard sale. I liked the curvy legs and carved detailing, but not the visible knots on the top or the worn, dated finish.
I used the leftover paint from my hutch redo. It is a mix of Duck Egg Blue Chalk paint and gray to make a very pale blue. I painted on two coats and then sanded the entire surface with 220 grit sandpaper for a very soft, smooth finish and a bit of distressing on the edges.
I really wanted the table to be a blend of blue and gray, so I mixed up a gray glaze and painted it over the entire table, wiping the excess off, with a clean rag, as I went. I used a tiny paint brush to paint the scrolling carvings and applique with Pure White Chalk Paint. I applied one coat of clear wax for protection and a pretty sheen.
