French Coffee Table Before and After

This table was brought to me by my favorite client. It had quite the two tone look...and I'm ok with 2 tone, just not the putrid green and yellow shiney enamel 2 tone that it had goin' on here.


(yes, that's primer on the top...I nearly forgot to take a "before)

A few coats of creamy white, followed by distressing and glazing with walnut stain gives it a new, romantic look!




Ah...much better. I have a few more pieces for this lovely client in my garage....more to come!
