French script end table

Nice, solid wood end table.

End tables with lower shelves are my FAVORITE!  This one’s in pretty good shape too.

Except for that big ole watermark . . . . um, make that a CRACKED watermark.  Can’t really see it in the pictures, but the wood is cracked clear through in the middle of the watermark.

I filled the crack with a bit of wood putty, sanded the top a LOT; tow coats of aqua paint; more sanding; pretty French Script words stenciled on the top and a little MORE sanding to fade and distress the wording.  Two good coats of matte varnish and DONE!

The legs and lower shelf were still in great shape. so I left them ‘as is’.  I think that ‘two tone’ type of furniture painting is still in style?!?  I still seem to see a lot of it at least.

These photos are more ‘true to actual color’ than the previous ones.  The other pics were taken outside in the shade and came out a bit dark.

Available for purchase in my booth at Stars; along with LOTS more furniture pieces.

  1. Love the color (of course)! The distressing almost looks metallic. And where did you find the script stencil? Beautiful job!!

  2. I like the two tones–it makes it more interesting.
