Two More Light French Gray Tables For My Booth

I just can't get enough of this color combo.  And it's a great seller, so why stop?

It looks so pretty with pink.

Here is the not-so- pretty before.

And here it table number two.

This one came out a little more distressed, so I added dark wax.  The first table only had clear wax.  You can see my technique and budget friendly tips here where I did my first table.

Since I was a little slow getting this post done, the first table has already sold.  I took the second table to the antique mall yesterday.

Now, should I do another booth project or a kitchen project for myself?

  1. Those look great!! I am in the process of finishing up a piece too!

  2. Oh how pretty! And those little doors on the first cabinet are adorable! We'd love to have you join our Be Inspired Link Party on Tuesday!

  3. I do love those colors, I do what sells over and over again, I get a little bored, but like you said if it sells!!~~


  4. I love the lines of the chest/end table. I just painted a bedroom set that was similar. I feel like I should be in France.

  5. That is so beautiful, I agree the colour is perfect. Thank you so much for sharing. What a beautiful space you have created my very first visit here I will follow on my way out so I know my path back here. Perhaps you will find the time to come visit me soon and do the same. I look forward to engaging more throughout the year and beyond. Take care. Cheers SpecialK XoXo

  6. Visiting from Met Monday and I am a new follower so I can see what other gorgeous things you have up your sleeve! Those tables are beautiful! Love the color!

  7. Love it, did you sand and prime it first?

  8. I can see why this color is selling quickly, it is just yummy! I have been having some nice success with my painted pieces in my Cape May booth, so I agree, why mess with what works? Love the Paris greys and French blues.

  9. I love it! I wish I could find pieces like this but I have never seen this style around our thrift stores, Goodwills, or yard sales. You did an amazing job! I hope you can link it up at our party.


  10. Love both of these! Rock on. :)

  11. Your tables are so pretty. Bluish gray is a favorite color of mine. Never tire of it.

  12. Both tables are very pretty! What a lovely shade!

  13. I am following this so I can see all your transformations. I have a pair of these in my closet (very similar -- vintage Drexel) storing my sweats. I have already painted them once, a really fancy time consuming redo. However, I am thinking that maybe their next incarnation could be grey/white -- so thanks for the ideas!

    Follow me?

  21. Hi Janet!
    I love the shade of gray...I've only done a few pieces in gray and yes, they sell quickly...I think I need to do more!
    I love the cubby thing you've added to your kitchen...cubbies are the best display! But what I really (still) love is that rose cup in your header...pretty!

  22. It's unique in the world. Great !
