the reveal...

remember this?
 the salvation army store end table? 
 good bones, but uuuugly!!!  the finish had a glassy lacquer type shine...
 here is the after, painted a soft gray with a gray glaze and a whitewash overlay.
 what! you're surprised that i didn't paint something turquoise or heirloom white?  me too!!
champ is standing guard.  
actually, he is just doing that to annoy me.....he is a publicity hog!!
 the part i like the best?

this drawer pull.  how devine!!
 the even better part?
 fifteen dollars.....
take that ethan allen furniture!!!  :)

because i have had some requests for information regarding color....
the paint i used for this table is sherwin williams big chill
sw big chill

i used a gray glaze made by mixing ralph lauren glaze mixed with dark gray craft paint and then i used a very light cream/ivory mixed with water for the whitewash overlay.

I did one of these too. Just love the way you finished yours. Yup, that glossy stuff had to go! Your dog is pretty cute too!

I love the "new" table - great eye for color!

This may be a weird question, but what kind of dog is Champ? We have a mixed breed, and he's got a lot of similar qualities to your dog. We've been trying to figure out "what he is" since we've gotten him! Thanks :)
