Day 1

I’m trending white décor.

Too bad I would have to change everything in my house to get the look I’m dreaming of.

Maybe one piece at a time.

Shabby Chic Table


paint project Petticoat Junktion What a pretty table….right?

Except it has a lot of missing veneer on the table top.

So I decided on paint. Surprise!!

I purchased this table when I went shopping with my friend Beth.

We shop flea markets and junk shops for thrifty finds.

No new stuff for us.

  I used Reclaim Off-White for the finish.

Not too white and not too tan.

  We gathered the large sea shells on our trip to Kodiak Island to visit our daughter and her family.

  I did a little distressing by hand where the veneer was missing on the top.

  I dry-brushed the leg columns and thought that was a great look but then decided the table looked too choppy so I distressed the feet…..really heavily….so they would match the leg columns.

For the heavy distressing on the feet I used an electric sander.

So……what do you think?

Leave me a little note below.

  3. Andrea Burke says:

    I love it, however, I think I would have not distressed the feet so much….but, this is my kind of table!…I love your little end tables, occasional tables and half tables and side tables! Especially in love with the metal paints, like silver! THOSE are my faves….!!!

    I love what you did, I think the distressing is perfect. I wish I could work up the nerve to do some of my tables. I have had them from 20 to 40 yrs, some I bought some are hand-me-downs, but all were antique when I got them and I’m just kind of tired of them. I love the white and think it would certainly brighten this place up a lot.

    I love the off-white look! I would rub the base with dark wax so it would have the darker wood showing through like the spindles. I really like how you paint your furniture, mine never has such a smooth finish as yours!

  13. Prissyville says:

    Oh man that’s pretty! Perfect wear and distress. Perfect staging too (which is what caught my eye). Stopped in from Miss Mustard Seeds Friday Linky Party!

  14. Quandie says:

    Absolutely love it! I think the uber-distressing is what makes this piece so awesome. Straight out of Jeanne d’Arc!

    WHAT DO I THINK? WHAT DO I THINK? oops sorry to yell, but once again you have BLOWN ME AWAY!!! GORGEOUS!

  16. Deana says:

  20. I have a 1/2 moon table that has a veneer missing from the back corners…less than 1/2 inch each…I was going to fill, stain, etc…so I could have a wood top and creamy legs…but this is an inspiration…I may even pick a little more veneer! Saw is on MMS…thanks for sharing…Coreen
