Pretty French Table

This little table started out as a wood table.  I followed the same process I used for my Chateau de Chantilly project.  To see the colors I used and the steps click here.

I love this finish.  It looks like it's naturally worn with time.
It doesn't even look like I just painted it, does it?

The Hauser Green gives it a wonderful aged patina.

I left it heavy in some areas so the rest of the paint looks like it has worn off with the passage of time.

Thanks so much for visiting.  I hope you like this finish as much as I do.  Have a wonderful week.

I do love the finish!! You are very good at aging/distressing and the table looks really good with that rug!

Beautiful table, Maggie! I love the feet and the color is great. It does not look like you just painted it.

I absolutely love this table. I went over and read about the drawer front you did. They both are beautiful.
I have a similar table in the garage that I will be painting. I know I am using your technique. It mine looks good enough to post, I will credit you. I am pinning both your projects and following you thru GFC and Linky.
Great job, Ginger
