Another before and after chippy chic style

As promised Thursday, I have another great before and after furniture style for you today. After I finished up the end tables, I dragged one of our upstairs console tables down to the chopping block. We have had this table since before we were married and I noticed that every time I walked by this table and/or took a photo of it it blended into the background. The handles on it were an awkward center and never fit properly and it drove me frickin' crazy when I opened the drawers.

So paint it I did.

Here's what it looked like before.

 Now don't be mad, but I only took photos in my furniture backdrop because the photos of it in place are being saved for that big HUGE thing I was talking about in the last post. 

I'll show it back in place all vignetted up after that. Promise.


This console table was done with Miss Mustard Seed milk paint in grainsack. The body of the piece has 2 coats of paint and the drawers got 1. The waxing is a combination of ASCP dark wax and MMS antiquing wax. The combination of the 2 different dark wax tones helps makes the table look older. I made this one much more chippy than I usually do but it suits the space it is currently in.


The new knobs are from Hobby Lobby and I aged them a bit with some antiquing wax.


I love how it turned out and even more that it doesn't just blend in. A new life for an old table.

Have a great weekend and week,

I may sneak in with a quick post but if not enjoy yourself,
