Carrera Marble Topped Console Table

I won this little pretty at an auction several months ago… The shape is PERFECT, the marble is authentic Italian Carrera and is in fantastic condition but the color of the wood base had to be changed!



I did prime this with grey spray primer prior to painting… I always play it safe when working with mahogany as the bleed through can be a pain in the rear!


Here it is all decked up for Fall!


I painted it in Paris Grey Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, lightly distressed it and waxed it with a coat of clear soft wax.


The Paris Grey is a perfect compliment to the Carrera Marble top!


I just love this cute little grey owl I picked up from Hobby Lobby!


The legs are just gorgeous!

It is just the perfect display table!

Primitive and Proper      


  1. FAbulous! I have grey cultured marble in the upstairs baths (which I detest but am stuck with for now) and I looked and this and thought, hmmm — wonder if that would help the looks of those baths? Maybe?


  2. Susan,
    This is just the inspiration I need with a make~over I’m planning in my Art Studio!!! What an amazing result! This little table looks fabulous in your entry!!! Visiting from Marty’s Table Top Tuesday!


  3. Stunning piece – I love the marble top too – in fact I love creating ‘faux’ marble – have you ever tried creating any? 🙂 – you could have a look at my website if you wish. Unfortunately, I don’t have a blog. – not sure if I’m allowed to put my website details on here, but will understand if you have to delete it.


      1. Hi Susan – I have just come onto WordPress and….. silly me I did not know your comments back to me were on here!! How stupid am I? lol and have only just seen yours and other peoples comments to me!! So…. it is the first time I have seen any of the comments on here. And… it has been very nice to look back and actually get to read them 🙂 I have looked at the date of this one and my goodness it was 2015! Doesn’t time fly? Anyway… what I would like to say is thank you for all your comments back to me 🙂 re this comment on your beautiful marble top table you did – I wondered if you did have a look on my website? I just thought you might like to see my ‘faux’ marble countertop I did a couple of months ago? Your comment on my website to what you think of it would be much appreciated if you can find the time to view it? here is the link and if you look under the headings at the top of the page – you will see ‘Project Gallery’ – this is what I have been up to this year. I still view your blog, but haven’t made any comment lately. Your house and garden that you have just completed is simply stunning. Wish our villa in Spain was as stunning, but it is very small in comparison to yours. Anyway, it has been nice to chat to you. Take Care and hope to have another chat soon. Kind Regards Denise
