Stately Side Tables for Sale in Oahu- CeCe Caldwell Vermont Slate

February 15, 2013

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.

side-tables-beforeI 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.

My mother-in-law brought me these dilapidated waterfall pieces. I prefer some stained wood on a piece when possible so I sanded down the tops and the drawer faces with my orbital sander and stained them using our Cappucinno wood stain.
