My husband came up with the brilliant idea for us to go up to the mountains about 30 minutes away and camp for the weekend. Just what I need, I cheap get away with some cooler temps. No fall leaves, but I'll settle for some greenery and pine trees.
Anyways, enough of my pity party and on to the good stuff. I came across this awesome table on Craigslist. Totally my style- over the top, elaborate, and ornate. I don't know why I'm drawn to this style, my home is very simple and country chic. I guess it's what I picture my home of the future to be like. My home is way too small for this kind of over-the-top table. It's a good thing or I'd have to keep all my fancy stuff :)
It was a very classic cream and gold, but that fake gold color hurts my eyes and I had to change it. The lady who sold it would probably very sad to hear I painted it. I chose a classic Paris Grey and Old White. I dark waxed it with some black shoe polish and clear wax to bring out the carving. To me this coffee table screams furniture at its finest.
