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.

Staining and Painting an Antique Chest of Drawers in Lichen Mix
Staining and Painting an Antique Chest of Drawers in Lichen Mix

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.

I recently freshen up my farmhouse style dining room table in Fusion Mineral Paint's Picket Fence and did a custom mix of Lichen and Picket Fence on my Buffet. 

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.

I just repainted our brick fireplace using Fusion Mineral Paint. I still need to do a few more coats of black paint on the 90's gold but I'm loving it so far! First I dry brushed on a coat of Lamp White but it looked too cool in tone so I dry brushed on my go-to off white, Champlain on about half of the bricks to warm it up.
