~Oh so French~

 This table has undergone many transformations, but I think this is it! I owe my inspiration all to Kim.When she redid her bench you can see it here a light bulb went off in my head and I new I had the perfect piece to copy her. A few months ago I repainted this table in AS Chateau Gray. I've been very happy with the way it turned out but after seeing Kim's bench I knew I wanted to create that same look.

I left it the Chateau Grey and added Old White to all the details. Then waxed it with both the clear and dark waxes.


































       I love it! Thanks for the inspiration Kim!
