Shabby, French Table & Announcements

Morning all!
I have so many exciting things to share today so make sure that you read all the way to the bottom of my post!
First up, here is a piece of furniture I recently finished that I will have available at my vintage furniture sale on Sunday.


I actually picked this up at the thrift store a couple of months ago, but just now had the time to paint it. It was in fantastic condition from the beginning and I loved the lines of it; just not the light colored stain.

I started out by painting the medallion and the legs in a deep brown and then gave the entire table two coats of cream.

I went a little bit heavier on the distressing of this piece and I am thrilled with the results!

So, the second thing I wanted to mention is the fantastic Modern Fresh & Fall series that I am a part of (I'll be sharing my home on October 31st). Don't forget to check in with today's blogger.
