Gray Vintage Side Table

Hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend. I lucked out and had front row seats to a John Lennon tribute at a small theater Saturday night. I have never sat front row in my life and it was amazing.  I am a huge Beatles fan ever since my mom took me to see Beatlemania when I was in the 7th grade. Off my love of the Beatles and onto the vintage table redo.

Very cool table but the top was a mess and I really wanted to stain it but the previous stain ran too deep.

Primed w/ gray spray primer. Too many nooks and crevices to brush on so I took the easy way out.

Painted gray w/ the slightest touch of blue...just had to. You know me and my blue thing.

I'm thinking maybe I should paint the top a flat black.What do you think? Or maybe a harlequin pattern w/ charcoal black?


I'm going to put it in my Etsy shop as is for now and see if it moves. If not then I'll change it up a bit.

UPDATE:
A couple of blog friends thought black would be the way to go and I agree. So, I got up this morning and added a couple of coats of flat black. I like it better this way. What do you think?

I think you should paint the top black if it doesn't sell on Etsy!

Looks lovely! I think you should paint the top black, it'd really make the blue stand out. :)

What a beautiful piece made even better with paint. Love the color and the dark top.

Michelle @Shellsshabbyshack said...

It's even better!!! I was having a hard time picturing it with a black top but it really brings out the detail in the legs. I luuuuurve it :)

The black top was the perfect touch to the piece! Love it! Spray priming it was the way to go...I just rolled/brushed primered a really annoyingly curvy/creviced piece today because it's too cold to spray here. I am bitter about it. :)

WOW that looks awesome. I have a similar table that I would love to funk up, however the hubs won't let me...such a party pooper!

Tracy's Trinkets and Treasures/Treasured Moments said...

I love the added blue. It really transformed it and showed all that great detail. I have a dog chewed table that is a bit like yours. It is on my agenda for painting. Your table inspires me to get after it.
