Little grey side tables
They're kind of like your favorite little black dress, only more fun.
Little grey side tables finished in CeCe Caldwell's Pittsburgh Gray paint and clear wax.
I wish I had before photos. What is wrong with me? Laziness? They were so hideous. For more on their before, check out this post.
Now they're done! The center panel of fabric is super cute, covered by a 16x20 pane of 1/8" glass and trimmed out in 1/4"x 2" wood painted to match the tables.
I don't think I told you this...my original vision for these tables was to turn them into little ottomans. But after I got the center panels upholstered with foam underneath I wasn't happy with the result, so I took the tables apart and kind of started over.
I also considered using burlap for the fabric in the center. It probably would have made selling them easier, but the fabric that's in there now is so unique and textural, I just couldn't pass it up.
It's funny how a simple Goodwill purchase like these tables can take on a life of its own.
These two tables will be for sale at the Sweet Pea Boutique in Fountain, beginning at their grand opening on January 26th!
