I've been wanting to add an accent table to place between our two chairs in the study.
When I saw this inspiration photo it got me to thinking about an existing table we currently own.
(In January this table image was posted on Velvet & Linen.)
SO, with sandpaper in hand I started the process. I knew I couldn't replicate the table but the size was right and anything was better than what we had.
I first applied a layer of Gold Rub.
The results were too brash for the room so I revisited my favorite blogs for further direction. I saw a lot of lighter gray techniques so I brushed on a small amount of Farrow and Ball's Pavilion Gray.
Once I completed the lighter paint I revisited my principals of wanting contrast.
I began applying a coat of Bronze Metallic Master paint to darken the finish.
To add to a family pocket watch I purchased a few accent accessories, a gold tray and boxwood plant from Back Home.
I still wasn't satisfied with the table so I brushed on a layer of Pewter Metallic Master's paint. This additional color starting bringing out the gray in the mirror frame.
Remember where I started?
At last I finished with yet another color of Old English Metallic Master paint.
Hey... the price was right!
Next I need to find the rug shown in the original inspiration photo. I want to break
the dark finish from the table and floor.
Thanks for stopping by!
