I found this lonely beat up dining room table at a thrift store and knew exactly what it needed to be a well-loved center of attention treasure. Sorry, I forgot to take a picture of the table before my friend's husband cut it just as I wanted, shaking his head the entire time because he could not wrap his head around my vision.
When he was done I had two ends (as well as four legs, not seen in pictures) like the one above and would create two demilune tables, one for my enjoyment and one to add to my web store. Boy was I excited to get started. I chose French Linen and Paris Gray Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I used Amaco Rub-n-Buff in Gold Leaf for the indented trim on the table skirt and legs; I finished this table a couple of months ago before Annie Sloan gilding wax became available.
I love the way that French Linen, used on the table top, and Paris Gray, used on the legs and table skirt compliment each other.
The gilding wax puts an icing on the cake so to speak.
I had a hard time taking pictures of the full table, as the only drawback on this table is that it does not have a supporting leg, so the table back will need to be attached to a wall using "L" brackets. Therefore, my overgrown boxwoods serve as the table support wall. Here is another picture with not so great lighting, as it makes the table top look bluish gray.
