A tale of a table

 Hey there friends hope you all had a great weekend!
Last week I showed you guys the little piece I'm using in my kitchen that I made over using Maison Blanche paint in Wrought Iron...here's the other piece that received a makeover or should I say do-over!! (that happens a lot here!)
 I had this piece quite a few years now it came from Home Decorators...a piece like this I don't mind painting over...I think it actually looks better painted.
I couldn't find a picture of it in it's original state, but here it is with it's first makeover using AS chalk paint in Old White...
 It stayed that way for about a year then I whipped out the paint brush again and applied a coat of AS Coco and heavily distressed it...
 Well the itch hit me again and here it is now in Wrought Iron by Maison Blanche...
 This time I even changed out the knobs to these pretty ones I found in Hobby Lobby.
I just love seeing all the different layers of paint come through...and how all the details really pop.
 It's back in it's original home in our sitting room.

 Here it is in all it's different looks!
Thanks for stopping by...Have a super week!

Hi Martina,

What a fun post, seeing the progression of your table. I like it all ways but it seems to get better each time! My favorite is the newest paint color in the black distress tones. It really makes the detail at the corners pop and has the perfect amount of distressing, in my opinion. Looks great!
