I was telling you yesterday about my find of the week. Broken legs, holes drilled through the top…so unloved.
After a lot of elbow grease getting down to the grain…my Diamond in the Rough!
Can you believe it? Amazing what lies underneath…
The legs are in Annie Sloan’s Chateau Grey – a gorgeous greenish, grey color. They are lovely (now that they are back in one piece!)
The shape of the top is all curves.
Restored back to its original beauty and ready to find a new home! I have one more lovely table to share but for now, here is a quick sneak peek…
Stay tuned 🙂

gorgeous! i love the top!!!
This is an amazing relove! It would have been much easier to paint the top, but congrats to you (and it’s new owner) for putting some additional time into restoring that beautiful wood…It is stunning!
That is just a gorgeous table top, I’ve never seen a piece with such a unique shape! Lovely!
Love your transformation….I just recently did an unloved table much like this (right down to the green color and stained top!), but at least mine didn’t have holes drilled through the top. I can totally sympathize with you when it comes to the work involved in getting down to the wood top, but I think that the two tones makes the whole piece so much more interesting and unique. You did a fantastic job making the table look as beautiful as it probably did many years ago! (can’t wait to see more of that white table too!)
Just beautiful, excellent job… I love it!!!
What a gorgeous top! You did a fabulous job and that color is one I will now have to try seeing how great it looks with the dark wood finish! Beautiful!
And now it’s my diamond! Thank you for holding on to it for me and I so enjoyed meeting you yesterday Suzanne. I love this table. Will send photo as soon as I move and position it against the special spot I have planned for it.
Now looking for a approx 60″ x 34.5 piece that I can use in my kitchen as storage/display under newly installed cabinets.
That is gorgeous!
Not sure if you’ll see this comment after all this time – hope there’s an alert! What are you using to repair the holes in the top, which will absorb the stain so nicely? I have some nice pieces which I liked to stain on top, but they require filling of damage. I didn’t think the filler stuff would successfully blend in once the stain was on, but that top came up beautifully. I can’t even see where the holes were.
Thanks so much, Liz.
Hi Elisabeth – I use wood filler that is stainable. It comes in different colors and you can pick one closest to the color you desire. The wood filler is Elmer’s and works well. The only problem is that once opened, the tube dries out quickly. I typically have to throw out half the tube. I think I am lazy and need to find a better way of keeping it!
Thank you. Hope I can find a comparable product. May have to dig out what I just filled my pieces with! 🙂
I love your work, Suzanne! You’ve given me lots of inspiration for my many furniture makeovers! I have a question for you about General Finishes High Performance Topcoat. I used it on my dining room table top and it has held up wonderfully. Can I use it over chalk paint? I just don’t like using wax as a topcoat. Thanks in advance and love your new haircut!
Hi Kelly, yes you can use GF topcoat instead of wax over chalk paint. It won’t give the same hand rubbed finish as wax (the aged look) but I find it works well. I’m with you on the wax. It is definitely labor intensive but on the right piece it really works. I want to try the new AS white wax next. Best of luck and thanks on the haircut!
