The One I Should Have Kept

Let me start by saying, I LOVE this coffee table. I also happen to need a coffee table. I also foolishly listed it and it sold the next day. That never happens. Drag right? Wrong. The woman who purchased it also bought a couple of dressers, a mirror, a chalkboard and candle holders. Turns out she owns a shop on Cape Cod...ok pinch me now. So that is where this is heading and I am super excited. 

 I painted in the house while watching Pawn Stars and yes I put newspaper down.

Mixed up some ASCP Paris Gray w/ a touch of some blue concoction I made a while back. Clear waxed then lightly dark waxed.

See how perfect it goes with my couches???

Now I'm on the hunt to find another just like it that I WILL keep for me.

Happy Monday!

Dark and Dated

I shouldn't have been looking on Craigslist. My garage is packed with furniture waiting for its big day. But I did and immediately found this set reasonably priced and only 20 minutes away. Had it been further I wouldn't have had the phone in my hand ready to take a ride.

I'm obsessed a bit with this color...Louis Blue and Paris Gray mixed.

The tops were shiny formica/laminate so I sanded them and gave 'em a quick spray of oil based primer. I know you don't have to do this w/ ASCP but I didn't want to take a chance of them getting scratched up.
 Here they are lighter and brighter....

Have a great weekend!
