Weathered Gray Wood Finish

I have a sweet tutorial on the weathered gray wood finish I gave the reclaimed table the JTS put together for me.

Reclaimed Table With Weathered Gray Wood Finish

Welcome to another fun themed furniture tour. Today’s theme is “neutral”. That means the field is wide open. I went weathered gray and white for my project.

Do you guys remember the $2 auction table the hubby and I repurposed into a table with a solid wood top and a metal base? The table is sooo much better now. No little spindly legs.

The table looks like this now. I tried to give the top a weathered wood look and I think I achieved it. Of course, the process involved a lot of trial and error. I wouldn’t know what to do if a project came together perfectly.

I used a handmade quilt from my collection, pretty flowers in a beat up watering can (usually on the dining room table), and other things from my junk stash to stage the photo. I keep the gates/doors handy for staging. There are 3 of them and they are heavy. I have to set them up each time I get ready to take a photo.
