I found this frenchy style coffee table at Goodwill. I haven't really painted any furniture since the chalkpaint-clear wax- dark wax craze started. Since I don't paint that many pieces, I decided to use what I had to get a similar effect.
I used Behr Light French Gray paint, minwax clear wax, and Briwax dark brown wax. I applied the clear wax with a cloth and the brown wax with a very large stencil brush I purchased at Hobby Lobby. I've heard negative comments about using Briwax, but I just rubbed most of the wax off the brush before applying. It gave a very light finish.
The hardware got some Rustoleum American Heirloom White spray paint and a little brown wax.
And I'm very happy with the results, all done on a budget.
Sadly, this is going to my booth. It really is hard to part some of these pieces.
