CLAUDINE INSPIRED BEACH END TABLE

I FOUND THIS TABLE AT A LOCAL THRIFT STORE AND I  REMEMBER MY FRIEND CLAUDINE ( FROM CONDENSED LOVE HOME ) SAYING " I ONLY PAINT WITH GREY AND WHITE ". I WAS INSPIRED, AS I NEVER PAINT WITH GREY & WHITE . I DIDN'T HAVE ANY GREY ON HAND , SO I  CUSTOM MIXED SOME GREY 


THIS CUTE TABLE WAS SO DARK BUT MADE OF SOLID WOOD 

NICE CURVES !


FIRST COAT OF MY CUSTOM GREY ASCP PAINT


ADDED SOME OLD WHITE ASCP TO MAKE IT MORE SUMMER BEACHY LIKE !!

USED PAINTER TAPE FOR THE STRIPE 


SOME SANDING & DISTRESSING 

CLEAR WAXED WITH ASCP 


FINALLY DONE !!
MY FIRST GREY & WHITE PIECE . I THINK THERE MAY BE MORE TO COME !!

Love it. It never ceases to amaze me how a little paint can give an old worn out piece such a new life. Yours is perfect.

Really Love how this piece turned out. I haven't yet done anything grey and white but I can feel it coming because when I see everyone else's pieces I just love how they turn out. Found you via the blog hop and am now a new follower!
