Sofa Table Makeover


 Hi there friends...
What's a girl to do on a cold rainy Sunday?
Find something to paint of course!!
~~~
I bought this sofa table in Home Goods after our new sectional was delivered...it was the perfect size just not the perfect finish and style but I knew I could fix that.
 Not a problem...with a little paint and new hardware I gave this table a whole new look!
~~~
Here's the before...stained with mission style pulls...nice but not my style.
After...now it has the french country look that I love.
 I bought the new pulls in Hobby Lobby...they had a white finish on them so I painted right over them using the color I used for the table...AS Versailles. 
After waxing it the color was still a little too light for the look I wanted so I just applied more of the dark wax until I got the look I wanted.


 I added a wooden applique in between the two drawers.
  The table is made by Lane and is solid wood not wood veneer...that's what I liked about it.
  Love the worn aged look it has now.




 Sorry for the dark pictures the weather wasn't the greatest on Sunday! 
Happy to see the sun shining today:-)

It's just amazing that you can transform something so completely. The color, the pulls, and the wood applique completely changed it. All of your hard work too. :)

Great make over Martina-i like the lighten version a lot!

That table is perfect behind your sofa. I liked the look of it when you bought it too though. I can see why you painted it though. It flows better with your rooms.

I love how the finish came out, it looks amazing, pinning this one! I would love for you to share this at our link party Wednesday!

Miss Kitty said...

What a great makeover! You are right, there was nothing "wrong" with the table you bought but not your home's style. Changing the color and adding some French details made all the difference! I love how it blends so well along the back of your new sectional.

Suzanne said...

Very pretty, Martina. If you feel the urge to paint anything else, please let me know:-)
