Table Makeover

I have been away for so long I think I have forgotten how to take pictures.  The pictures that follow are so blurry and the light is so bad that it is almost embarassing.  I decided to use them regardless since I haven't posted in such a long  time I bet some of you thought I up and moved.

This is a table I had in my living, hand painted by someone (don't know who) .  I loved the curves of the table and the carvings and moldings but I felt they got lost in the creamy paint . 



SO out came the trusted supplies I already had on hand AND my helper:


And on to the finished product:


See the beauty of the carvings?

This picture shows the true grey color it is.

  10. Oh I love it! I'm crushing on gray right now. I want to paint my bedroom gray and my bed gray and my nightstand gray. But then maybe that'd be too much gray? :)

    Hopped over from Frugal Friday!

  11. Oh my word.. the detail is amazing! What a piece to swoon over!! Sure would be cool if they made appliques that beautiful so one could add that detail to anything plain.

  13. I just love it! It was worth painting over the flowers to let the carved spots be the focus.

  17. I had to read your post twice to figure out how you attached the decorative molding! LOL What a difference! I didn't even notice the decorative molding with it painted the way it was before. Great job, and great make over.

  22. That decorative painting sure detracted from the beautiful details of this piece. You did a great job of letting it speak for itself.

  34. I think the new paint actually makes the decorative molding more noticeable now. I think it also looks more up to date; what a wonderful redo here. :) Pam @ Sallygoodin
