Coffee Table Change

Hello Everyone.  Happy Friday.

Terry made me this coffee table awhile back and I have loved it but I felt it needed a little change.

It is a pretty little coffee table but the light pine top just was not mixing nicely with my darker floors.







I decided I was going to white wash the top.  That was my first step.  Easy peasy just dry brushed the top with slightly watered down white paint.  



I then took some antique glaze and applied it to the top of the table with a rag.  Wiping off the glaze with another dry rag.

The antiquing stain gave a more gray tone to the pine w00d underneath.



I added this vintage door knob to the backside of this table to give her some character.  Easy peasy change up to give a new look to this table.  It is just fun to take some paint and experiment to see what different looks you can achieve to a piece you already have.

Have a great Friday and wonderful week end.
Going to see the release of the new movie Trolls with my granddaughter Abby today.
Should be fun.
Kris

  4. Looks great, Kris. The antiquing stain really brings out the grain of the wood. I will have to keep that product in mind for some future projects. Love the door knob addition too. Have a great weekend!

  8. I love the power of paint!

    And, I am looking for places where I can add a doorknob for interest - what a cute idea.

  10. Kris, That was a quick change. I like that you keep all the old doorknobs and use them. :):) I think Abby is going to love that movie. Hope all of you are enjoying our fabulous weather. Wishing you a great weekend, blessings, xoxo, Susie

  12. That works great, melding different wood tones can always be a challenge. Here, none match, but we will be painting the kitchen table white/cream and leaving the dark wood top---maybe, lol. Grins, and lovely setting you have now. Sandi

  13. It's very pretty Kris. I like the whitewashing effect and the antique knob that you added. The Valspar distressing looks so nice. It's always helpful to see what you used. Thank you for the tip. Have fun with your grand daughter! That looks like a super cute movie.

    Hugs,

  18. A little paint and a creative hand make a BIG difference. I haven't visited in awhile, so came by to check in with you. You have been busy and the house is so beautiful. My visits with you get me recharged... and honey I need all the help I can get in that area! Thanks for sharing!
    Hugs, Pendra

  19. I like it, Kris. I think it looks better painted and glazed, too, than it did natural. Sometimes I like the natural wood tops and sometimes I think it looks better painted. Hope you are having a great Friday! xo Diana

  21. If only I could get 1/2 as much accomplished as you...I wouldn't have an unfinished backyard relandscaping, a garage full of projects and a hall way half painted. Tomorrow I vow to channel "YOU" and finish atleast one thing (before moving on the next). As usual, you're such an inspiration.

  25. The whitewashed finish softens the look of your coffee table and it blends nicely with your all-white style, Chris. Always tweaking something!

    Our granddaughter was showing me all the troll things she'd like for her upcoming birthday. Enjoy the movie!

  30. I like the change, what an easy, yet so beautiful and elegant outcome. I just love the ideas you share with us. I have a chair waiting some magic like this. :-) My parents got the chair at an auction.
