Grey French Country Table



I found this great heavy console table at the Flea Market awhile back.  

Before:

It is made of solid wood and had great potential, so I brought it home to re-do.  I thought it would look great with a grey French Country look. I mixed up a home-made chalk paint in a warm grey and painted a couple of coats.  Next I added white to the grey paint for a lighter look and then dry brushed the lighter color on to the piece.  The last step-clear wax.  I added grey ceramic knobs to update the table. 

I did not have time to take proper pictures of the piece because a local dealer bought it.  I took a few pictures in my driveway as we were loading it up.




You can see the lighter grey dry brushed on here and the new knobs








7 foot planked top!
