Pinstriped End Table

I love having things in my home that remind me of the people that
I love. My grandma gave me this table & I wanted to keep it
in our home & give it a makeover to restore the condition of the table
so that we could have the table around for years to have it
remind of us of my lovely grandparents every time we look at it…

Before, the table was beautiful, but the top was in pretty bad
condition. I decided to do a small ticking stripe on the top.
I used Duck egg blue & Old White by Annie Sloan.
After painting I distressed the table using a sanding block.

If you follow me on Instagram {@lizmariegalvan} you know
that I have been craving fall so I have been lighting this
pumpkin pie candle {TJ Maxx} all week!

For the thin stripes, I simply taped off small even stripes on the top
with painters tape. I used a brush to paint the old white
on top of the duck egg blue.

I kept the rim of the top of the table natural wood to add a unique
element & also to let some of the antique table show through.
I also left the metal claw feet natural as well.

What do you think of this shabby chic pinstriped table??
I am in love with it & I’m excited to have it in my house for
years to come. What kind of pieces in your house that have
memories of people you love?

  39. Wow, what a great transformation. Visiting from Overflowing. I love all the little nuances- the metal feet, the wood rim, etc. It’s so easy to just paint the whole darn thing one colour so I love that you took the time to treat this piece right! Loving the robin’s egg colour too! OH and where did you get the antlers? My friend’s looking for a piece just like that!

  40. Love the table. I have it’s twin in my garage. I found it at an estate sale & have been looking for the perfect inspiration to repaint it. I just found it! Great job and I am totally going to do the stripes!

  54. I’m not surprised to see so many of your friends…LOVING this pinstriped table. Add me to the list of those who adore your blog! I’m featuring you tomorrow. XO, Aimee

  55. I love your table! I’m renovating a cottage and planning on painting all my dark furniture white. I have been reading alot about Annie Sloan paint.
    I have no experience with furniture refinishing. Do you think I need a class?
    My local AS distributor offers it, but I thought $200 for 3 hrs. was rather pricey.
    What do you suggest?

  56. This might be my favorite projects of yours ever! I love the table so much.. It just has such a nice structure and then with your amazing paint job it looks fantastic!


  57. I love it…. Did you paint the top with old white then tape and put duck egg blue on top of that ?

  58. This is just so pretty! It was featured at our Uncommonly Yours link party!

    Take care,


  59. I love this side table. You did a fabulous job! I would love for you to share on my weekly Linky Party Blog Stalking Thursday!

  60. Awesome table!! It is so yummy, I could eat it. :)

  61. this is so unique and beautiful. love how you left the feet and edge natural. such a sweet table with great memories of your grandparents.
    found you via roadkill rescue.

  62. How did you do the blue distressed paint?? I’ve got an old vanity I’m trying to redo and want to do it like this table. LOVE IT!

  63. Love this table! Love the white stripes. I recently re-did her sister! check her out;


  64. I absolutely love your blog and find a lot of your post’s to be what precisely I’m looking for.
    Do you offer guest writers to write content to suit your needs?
    I wouldn’t mind publishing a post or elaborating on a few of the subjects you write related to here. Again, awesome weblog!

  65. Super cute!! :-) Random question, but do you know the wall color of this room? I love that shade of gray!

  66. I have admired this piece before! I do have a quick question! Every time I try to do stripes on chalk paint when I take my tape off it peels the paint off. Do you have any tips? Do you wax before you do the stripes?

  67. I was sugfgested this website by my cousin. I am
    nott sure whether this post iis written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my trouble.
    You’re wonderful! Thanks!
