Gray Drop Leaf Side Table

On a little break from the house painting I bring you today’s Before & After.  This gray drop leaf was redone for Kelly Sherman Design and can be purchased here.

I found this side table at our local Restore where is was mixed among the dining room sets looking like an orphan.  I loved the french provincial legs.  I also think it is great when a piece of furniture is multifunctional so I liked the drop leaf sides.  This table can be used as a nightstand or an end table but also a coffee table with the sides up.  It could be very handy in a small apartment where you might need entertaining space one night and floor space another.

When I brought the table to the register, I pulled the masking tape price tag off the top to hand to the cashier.   I then realized I had pulled all of the finish off with from that corner.  Most people would worry but I just thought that that boded well for how easy the finish would come off.

The Before:

After I brought it home I stripped off the finish instead of sanding so I wouldn’t damage the curves of the legs.   Then it was primed and painted using Safecoat paints in gray for the body and pure white for the drawer fronts.

The After:
