This sturdy antique solid wood side table has been sitting in my studio since last summer, just waiting for inspiration. I don't know why it took so long but when it hits - you have to just go with it! Since it's been soooo long since I shared this thrifting find, here's a reminder.
Pretty old school eh? This is one super solid piece - it weighs a ton! But the wood carving on the legs is simply amazing. I decided to really bring the detail out by distressing the table and keeping the antique brass hardware for a vintage meets modern feel. I had sanded the piece way back when I first got it (don't you love it when the hard work is done??). So I simply had to pick out a beautiful stormy weather greenish grey, paint several coats and then sand away at the edges and carved bits to reveal all the luscious solid wood goodness! Of course I sealed it all up with a couple of coats of water-based polyurethane.
Here she is with her brand new, freshened up Lather Creations style!
Isn't she lovely? So light and bright now, but still with vintage styling to show off her charms. I don't usually work with brass hardware, but it seemed to suit the piece. Thoughts? Are you loving the brass revival or is it just not for you?
Here's a few more pics of Grey Clouds to share.
If you live in the Winnipeg area and simply must have the Grey Clouds Weathered Side Table, you can buy it here. Or if you have a dated piece of furniture that could use a Lather Creations refresh, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let's have a chat!
Have a lovely week friends!
