This curvy French end table in classic white came from a sweet customer.
Back in the spring, Mary went home with this cabinet cabinet. She was enjoying it so much, she just wanted to say thank you. See, I told you she was sweet!
The end table arrived in the back of a van (along with some other goodies) just moments before our fall sale. But sadly, as she was being loaded into the van, the marble top had fallen out. Mary was so disappointed as the table had once belonged to her grandmother.
Another issue was that the drawer bottom was all duct taped together, so that had to be replaced as well.
So here was our starting point - good bones, just in need of a little cosmetic work!
Now you know that I'm a little intimidated by the power saw (even the sound scares me), so I had a little help with this one. My husband cut a piece of MDF for the inset top and a thin piece of plywood repaced the bottom of the drawer.
I decided to keep it simple with a classic white paint - Behr's paint and primer in one in silky white mixed with the chalk paint recipe.
The hardware was already perfect, it just needed a good scrubbing.
The whole piece got a light distressing and a coat of wipe on poly.
Mary missed our Holiday Open House. I was curious to see if she'd recognize her grandmother's end table.
She looked pretty cute all decked out for the holidays!
Mary, I hope you are reading this. Thanks so much for your generosity. And just so you know, this sweet table found it's way to a happy new home!
