Chateau Accent Table Idea

Hi there Friends,
Do  you ever have items in your stash to create with, but a long time in the making??
That was how I was with these elements.

Four great table legs and an old table top, found at different times with the thought
I would create the perfect table accent.

So as I was cleaning out my storage room next to my studio, I decided it was time to
do something with these 5 pieces.

To the table top I added 4 leg attachments for the assembly.

Painted the top Honeysuckle Bloom flat paint
and the legs with Yesteryear Americana Chalk Paint.
Love this color.
It's like a soft grey blue and goes with everything.

When the top was dry, I added two stripes in the same leg color.

Over that,
 I stenciled the word CHATEAU
with pretty scrolls to the top and bottom of the word.

If you could see my store room of stash, you would say, I still have a lot to do.
You would be right~~~~

But getting this table done is long over due and I am so happy with the finish.

I'll be keeping this one for my cottage,
but planning to have small furniture accents tables in my Etsy shoppe soon.
It has been some time since I offered furniture
and I miss working on these pieces.
Nothing too large like I designed in the past, but smaller accents to 
add to cottage decor.


Below is a new vintage tray just arriving in my Etsy Shoppe
I designed three of these and this is the last one left. 
Love the added flower bud and leaves to the tray edge.

If you have not tried DecorArt Americana Chalk paint, you will love it and the price too.
The tray Dream and Hydrangea Tray above was painted with the same Yesteryear chalk paint
like the table legs.
I also recently found another chalk paint by Folk Art, in Parisian Grey.
Haven't tried it yet, but I'll let you know how that one is.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great weekend 
always Southern DayDreams
