Grayish-Blue Side Table

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.

Can I simply say what a relief to uncover somebody that truly
understands what they're discussing on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. A lot more people must read this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised that you are not more popular because you certainly possess the gift.
