Bringing new life to a friends old kitchen table

Happy Wednesday friends!!!

Last week, my good friend asked if I could do something to her old kitchen table....she had recently purchased some beautiful off white glazed chairs from Pottery Barn and was hoping I could get her table to take on a similar look.  Here's what we came up with:

here is the finished leg...but it all started with this: 
my friend chose a very light sage green paint...


this is after we sanded, primed and painted last week...

now that the paint had a week to cure, I went back yesterday and added glaze and wax to the table... 
We are both thrilled with the finished product...It looks so good with the PB chairs!!!
ahhhh.....the power of paint & friendship

  1. It looks fabulous. I love the color she picked out. What a nice friend you are to help her out.

  2. It looks great, Mariaelena. Any time you want to paint my kitchen table, you're more than welcome to! LOL

  3. You did a terrific job. Love that soft green!



  4. The table looks amazing! Did you use the Annie Sloane paint or another brand? Still haven't decided if I want to paint my old Craig's List table. Hope you are having a very Merry Christmas time!

  5. Love the color. What a great friend!

  6. Thanks for your kind words and visit to us at Magnolia Lane! I know Christy will come by here soon, but I had to check it out for myself. I can't wait to look around more--I am working on my own kitchen table redo right now too. Have a wonderful holiday and we look forward to seeing more of what you do!
