I mentioned last week how I was working on the French End Tables. However, I was only able to share how beautifully the top had turned out in Minwax Early American stain.Honestly, I had used the little table as a test piece to try out a few paint colors/finishes for a dresser that I am working on. This is why I wasn’t able to share the full “before and after” with you last week as it was kind of a hot mess of a paint job!
I had time to sand it and repaint it in the final color that I had wanted to do originally – Annie Sloan Old Ochre. It is a classic color for a classic table. This is a pretty simple before and after. It is two coats of Old Ochre on top of Paris Grey (the test color for that other piece) and sealed with clear Annie Sloan wax. I also sanded it in a few places to show off its lines and added new glass pulls.
Voila! I shall work on its pair next month and list them for sale! I can’t wait to share the newest makeover – the one I mentioned in this post earlier – it is such a beauty 🙂
Gorgeous! You are so talented!!! Love your blog!!! Just what I am looking for, for my living room. Wish furniture company’s made ’em like they used to.
Thank you so much, Sue!
Absolutely beautiful. You did a great job. Virtually unrecognizable from the original.
Thanks so much!
Wow!! Your work is absolutely amazing!! You know how to choose the right colors!

They turned out beautifully! Old Ochre is one of my favourite colours.
Thanks Annie! It is one of my go-to Annie Sloan colors!
