Vintage End Table & Where I've been Featured

*I was compensated for this post with supplies, however all content, thoughts and opinions are my own.

Hey everyone!
I have a bunch of exciting things to share with you all today!
But first, here is a vintage William Fetner end table that I painted over the weekend.

In my own home I tend to gravitate more towards cream and (my all time favorite) antique white for furniture (although I have been adding in more stained and black pieces lately). It just seems to work better for me and gives me a neutral palette to decorate (and redecorate) with.
But, when I am doing custom orders or painting furniture to sell, I just love using color.  Although, for some reason, I seem to forget about Persian Blue from General Finishes, but honestly, it is one of the best colors out there. Every time I use it, I fall in love all over again. Here's the thing that makes it so hard to's light blue. And, I feel like, if you just say that, the connotation of a baby blue or a pastel blue comes to mind. I assure you this is neither! Persian Blue is a sophisticated, lighter blue with hints of gray and maybe even a tinge of green. It is just gorgeous!
Look at the difference it made on this seriously dated end table...
Since the table has a decidedly country feel, I gave it a good amount of distressing and sealed it with wax.

 And, are you loving the hardware as much as I am? You really cannot go wrong with milk glass. Ever.  These Milk White Cut Glass Knobs were provided by one of my very favorite companies, D. Lawless Hardware.

Lastly, I lined the drawer with burlap to give it a fresh, new feel.

I love the classic lines of this table! If you are local, this table is currently available for sale.
Now, on to some pretty amazing features. Seriously. How am I this fortunate!
I've mentioned time and time again that I adore General Finishes paint. I'm not exaggerating. I honestly, honestly do. And they have shared my work in some pretty amazing ways.
First, my Patina Green Antique Dresser is being used by GF as the cover photo on their website. You can see it here!
Secondly, GF also used THREE (I cannot even believe it either) of my dressers in their print brochure...
And, I promise this is the last thing I will share today, but I am so thrilled that I was featured again on Apartment Therapy! You can see the Before and After that was shared here.
As seen on...
