I found these two solid mahogany antique side tables at a Salvation Army. They were marked half off because nobody wanted the poor dears. They were a bit beat up and missing all of the hardware except for one lonesome knob.
I thought that since these tables were mahogany, antique, and stately looking that they deserved a stately makeover. I also wanted to try CeCe Caldwell’s Vermont Slate. I painted one thick coat of Vermont slate on both tables, let it dry, wet distressed them and then sealed with dark aging wax.
I like that the rich color of the tables shows through.
The tables are 22 1/2′ W, 30″ D and 21″ T.

Today I'm featuring a thrift store chest of drawers that my sister-in-law and I found. I thought I'd have to paint the whole thing because of damage to the veneer. But alas, while sanding some goop off of the top, I realized that the veneer underneath was perfectly fine and sanded the whole thing. I decided to stain the top in Cappuccino Stain Oil, the perfect rich brown.
All of the furniture pieces with the exception of the industrial shelving unit are used pieces that I've re-homed and painted with Fusion Mineral Paint.
