On a recent thrifty adventure, I found this ugly little table. There were only a couple of things that I liked about it.
For this makeover, I’m going to show you how to create the perfect weathered finish!
Curvy Little Side Table
I loved the curvy legs and the fact that it was all wood.
The first thing that I did was remove the piece from the top.
Here’s how I refinished the piece:
For the top…
- sand it with some pretty rough sand paper. I started with 60 grit and finished with 120.
- stain – dark walnut.
- waxed with Maison Blanche Dark Wax.
For the body of the piece…
- paint one coat with Maison Blanche Vintage Furniture Paint in the color Pecan.
- wax with Maison Blanche Chalk White Lime Wax.
Pecan waxed with Maison Blanche Chalk White Lime Wax makes the perfect weathered gray. On this piece I only painted it with one coat of paint, in places the previous brown shows through a little. The great thing about the lime wax is that it has chalk in it. See the close up below with the perfect limed finish!
This will be the easiest weathered finish that you ever create.
You can never have enough small side tables with the perfect weathered finish.

That turned out really cute and I love the color. Taking those top pieces off was a good idea. Looks less fussy without them.
I also love looking at the photo of doggy. Is he/she a Standard Poodle or Golden Doodle or…? I lost my beloved black Labradoodle, Tavi, three months ago to cancer and I miss him so much. He was my dearest companion for nearly ten years. So, it seems like every curly, poodle-looking dog I see pulls me right in.
that’s an amazing transformation Debbie! Murphy doesn’t look thrilled about it though. hehehehe

Thanks Gail, Murphy is hard to please! hahahaha
Love how it turned out… Featuring you tomorrow!
this is great, Debbie! Did you use brown wax at all? Or is that just the one coat of paint that makes it look brown? And how did you apply the wax? I love the texture!
How beautiful….I have always wanted to try this paint…I so love the finish!!…and the table is so pretty!!
I haven’t tried Mason Blanche products but wow, I need to run and get some! Your “new” table is adorable, perfect weathered look and those legs, my oh my, love them!
this is so pretty and your photos are amazing. jeez, not like I like to talk mean, but that table was not pretty at all. 🙂
I totally agree, ugly little table 🙂
beautiful transformation Debbie! Your table makeover looks fabulous!
This is a great makeover. I really love to find darlings in the rough like these are bring them back to life. I think it was a good choice to leave the top unpainted. I am not familiar with the Maison Blanche paint, is it similar to Annie Sloan?
I LOVE that table! Its so PERFECT. I am so crushing on gray right now and that mixed with the wood on this piece made it look so classy and rich!
What a wonderful makeover.
I absolutely love that pecan color! Gotta try it! And, those curvy legs make me weak in the knees!
Why thank you. I did enjoy this post. LOVE your Pecan and Lime Wax finish. I never would have know they were such a fabulous combo. Oh, and your before and after picture? That is wicked cool!!!!
Gorgeous photos… just really, really love the finish.
The chalky wax finish on the curvy little table is the perfect finish, it looks great. I also see a curvy new sidebar picture of someone who also looks great!
Thanks Bliss, yes, I thought I’d update that photo 😉
