Unique French Side Table Revived

I just LOVE this round French table! Not only is it pretty to look at but it has storage too… what?! The glass top has this wonderful treatment to the underside… however it is missing a knob and the trim around the top has some damage, but it is in great structural condition so I would say an overall fabulous piece!

It took me some time to figure out what colors to use, but I think in the end it turned out beautiful!

AFTER

The color palette I chose was Cream and Pure White (for the highlights) Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. These colors coordinated perfectly with the gold and brown on the glass top.

One of the areas I highlighted with the Pure White chalk paint.

I lightly distressed the entire piece and waxed it with Annie Sloan’s clear wax. Annie’s wax is just is so creamy that I find it works best for pieces with a lot of detail… I used a wax brush to get into all of the grooves… I also sprayed the new knobs and the metal inserts a brown metallic, sort of like ORB but not exactly, it blends in perfectly with the entire piece.

Sorry about the reflection on the top, I had a hard time finding a place to photograph this… but it is just so pretty!

This table 31.5” in diameter x 28” tall… it’s a rather large size… where or how would you use the table? I’m sure there is a name for this kind of table, of you know what it is please let me know!

Thanks for stopping by…

Until next time!

About Susan @ Uniquely Yours or Mine

Hi, my name is Susan and I’m a furniture hoarder… whew, now that I have said that I feel so much better! Anyway, I started this whole furniture refinishing and blogging business in 2011 and I have LOVED every minute of it! It’s not “easy” by any means but it allows me to utilize my creative side and meet lots of wonderful people… it is seriously my dream occupation! I have been refinishing furniture for myself for over 20 years but never gave any thought to doing this for others until my kids had gotten to the point that they didn’t need me as much… sad but true! So now I’m a stay at home mom and wife who has decided that fixing up and painting furniture is so much more rewarding than vacuuming and grocery shopping… my house is never quite as clean as I would like for it to be and there is furniture everywhere… but I couldn’t be happier! I hope you can come along on this journey with me!

  1. Love, love, love this table.

    I also like that you often stain (or leave as is) the top of furniture instead of painting all the surfaces. Hoping to visit your booth on Nov. 16 in Ashland.

  16. Very nice piece. I worked on what I’m thinking is some sort of french style side table today. Similar color is used on the sides and legs as that’s one of my favorite colors. I love your table!
