The Little Grey Table

Remember this cute little table I found at Goodwill a few weeks ago?


It was $19.99.  I decided to paint it grey to use in our main bathroom next to the tub. I used up the rest of my ASCP Paris Grey sample pot on the main portion of the table.



And the Heirloom White that I made into a chalk paint for the top insert area.  It is very much like the ASCP Old White.  In fact, I used it on my terrarium project and when I photographed it on my French dresser makeover piece {which was done with ASCP Old White} they looked like a set.


I just did some clear wax on it for protection and left it at that.  I did put a few little things on it for the pictures.


Although, I’m sure this is how it will be serving us for most of the time.


I’m going to change out a few things to make a Spring/Summer look in this bathroom this week.  I also need to go back to Target and get some hand towels I saw.  I didn’t get them the first time because I thought $9.99 a piece was a bit high for hand towels, but I keep thinking  how well they would work in here.

Good choice on the two-tone paint job, Kathy! I need to get started on some more paint projects now that it will be pleasant to work out in the garage. Before we know it, it will be hot and humid! This weather has been gorgeous, don't you think? March and in the 70's?!

Hi Kathy,

Your table looks beautiful. It's the perfect fit for your bathroom.


Jane said...

Looks like we were both working on little table projects this weekend. I love the gray color that you painted on yours. I only had white paint at home and was so anxious to paint mine that white it was!! I need to step out of my "paint it white" stage and add some color!!
Have a great week.

Jamie @ Domestically Vintage said...

So pretty! I love the style of the table and I think the colors are perfect with it!! I can't wait to save my pennies to eventually by Annie Sloan Chalk paint! I guess I can try making it myself whenever I get brave enough to try it.:) ~ Jamie

Kathy, you have inspired me to get busy. I have two of these tables in the closet. Your table looks amazing painted! I love it! It's a perfect size and accent piece for your bath!

Kelly said...

Great table makeover! I love that color grey on there. I love doing paint projects on small pieces of furniture. They don't take long, but make such a big difference.

Jodie said...

It's amazing what a little paint will do. Love the two tone.

Richella Parham said...

Your table looks lovely, Kathy! I've wondered about trying to make my own chalk paint. I have a small piece that I'd like to paint and I'm very much behind the times that I've not yet used chalk paint on anything! ASCP seems to be a great product, but it is rather pricey. Hmmm. . . now you have me thinking!

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

Angie@Echoes of Laughter said...

Kim said...

So sweet. I love little tables and almost never pass them up because you can always find a home for them. Yours looks perfect in the bathroom Kathy and the color is perfect too. Great job.

Rosemary@villabarnes said...

I love the simplicity, Kathy. The colors are very soothing.

Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas said...

That is the perfect size to use in a bathroom. Love the way you painted adorable! I have been eyeballing all the multitude of things I need to do to the OUTSIDE of my house!! A landscaper owned our house years ago and he planted ALOT of stuff! Which requires ALOT of maintenance! We have been scaling down for the last few years! I told Steve we are getting to old to try and keep all that flippin' shrubbery trimmed! UGH!!

And do you want to talk about the pollen down here? OMG!!!! Horrific is the word I would use. I was trimming shrubs Saturday and there was a yellow cloud all around me! A HOT mess!

Hope your day is great!

Dear Sweet Kathy
I always leave here with a smile on my face. I should come here everyday it would be good for me.
Love this little table you got at GW. It turned out so sweet but everything you do turns out that way. What a great price too.
I need one just like it but I would never find it for that price.
Thank you for your suggestions about my post on colors. Your right I do need to just find some colorful pillows I love and pictures. Wish I could afford pictures of Ms Shipness art. I have only two small ones but her paintings are what I want in my home.
Take care dear friend

Debbiedoos said...

Very cute table Kathy! Perfect home for it too. I love goodwill finds like that.

Kristens Creations said...

Love the makeover Kathy! Paint sure can work wonders! There are a few things I'm thinking about painting around here...Glad you like the bunny centerpiece! I did have some beautiful fresh tulips there for about a week...until they bit the dust! One thing about faux, they sure won't die! lol...I hope you are having a wonderful day! Kristen

Linda@Coastal Charm said...
