Elegant Striped Sofa Table and Giveaway Reminder

Shayne brought this to me a few weeks ago and was undecided on how to finish it.

Photobucket

That night, she sent me this picture as inspiration. I gasped at the beauty of the photo! She got it from Pinterest but didn't pin it, so I don't have the source. If you know where this came from, please let me know!

After priming the table with Kilz gray primer, I painted the entire table with DecoArt paint in Silver Morning. Then I got out the Scotch Blue painters tape. I measured 4 wide stripes on the apron of the table and one tapered stripe on the inside of each leg. The legs were a bit frustrating and aren't perfect, but overall, I think I achieved the look Shayne wanted. I finished it by glazing with Jacobean stain.
