Good morning friends! I hope you all had a great weekend and are ready to dive into another week! I can’t wait to hear all about the Haven conference from all the bloggers who got to go. I almost feel like I was there from
stalking following them all on social media. Almost. It looked like so much fun!
I took a break last week from furniture to focus on some wedding and anniversary fun, but today I’m back with a great little table for you. I picked this one up from a friend a little while back (the same one I got my little red humidor from) and love the unique shape of it. It’s not often that you see a triangular topped table and I knew I wanted it.
As you can see, it wasn’t in great shape. It had a lot of stains and discoloring on it and the paint was coming off in many areas. I had bought a little sample pot of Annie Sloan’s French Linen a little while ago and thought this would be a good piece to try it out on.
As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I like to sand and re-stain a lot of the tops on pieces I do and this one was no different 🙂 It actually had a beautiful light colored wood underneath and I was very close to keeping it au natural and just painting the bottom. But since I was using a light colored paint, I thought the contrast of the stain would be better.
I need to apologize for not taking many process pics on this one, but let’s all be honest, you’re probably more interested in seeing the before and after anyway!
I sanded the top and stained it with Dark Walnut and sealed it with Hemp Oil. The bottom is painted in French Linen and the drawer is painted in Old White. Both sealed with clear wax. New hardware from, you guessed it, Hobby Lobby 😉
Have you ever seen any triangle topped tables? Hope you have a fabulous day!
