Mountain Smoke End Tables

Mount smoke end tables - A makeover & beautiful living room! lizmarieblog.com

A couple of weeks ago I asked on my Instagram & Facebook what color I should paint these lovely wood end tables. Some of you said white, very few said taupe, & the majority of you said to use the gray which was mountain smoke by Valspar. My instincts said to go white & play it safe, but I’m so happy that I didn’t play it safe & went with something other than white.

This look was achieved by using a couple of coats of the Valspar mountain smoke in satin. After the paint was dry I used a sanding blog to create a slight distressed look on both end tables really focusing in on the corners & edges. After I was done distressing the end tables I sealed it with annie sloan’s dark wax. The wax really made the color a bit deeper & brought out the distressing a little more. All in all, I love how they came out!

You might be wondering who’s lovely house this is that I took the photos of the end tables in. Well, I would like to introduce you to my dear friend Sidney. Do you ever meet someone organically, in our case walking through Target, who you just click with & talking is so easy. Right away I knew Sidney was put into my life for a reason. She walks so closely with the Lord & is a beautiful example of a wife, mom, & working woman. Up until this past year Sidney was a realtor, but now she runs a very successful business with Rodan & Fields {The eye cream is a miracle worker… trust me!} & she just started her own blog {here}. She has encouraged me to be a better person & to not settle with just a good relationship with God, but to bring that relationship to a higher level, to be a better wife, a better friend, & a better mom to my future children here on earth. On top of all this she has a beautiful cozy home that is so welcoming complete with a sunny yellow front door. We were meant to be friends wouldn’t you say?  I was painting these end tables for our new rental, but as I was painting them all I could think about was how pretty they would be in Sidney’s home, so since we are not quite in our rental yet I photographed them in her lovely living room & man o man I feel like they fit right in!

    I have been going back and forth on what color to paint my end table and gray was one of the colors. My end table is exactly the same as your. So thank you. Yours came out so nice, hopefully mine will come out as nice. Thank you for ending my dilemma . Simply gorgeous.

    Hi! I was drawn to the pics of this wonderful little side table and have an old stand up record player that I’m thinking this would look great on. I’ve never refinished anything before, so this would be a first! What drew me in even further, however, was the story of friendship! I, too am a Realtor. I’m am currently hosting my very first Bible study in my home. Ten of the most lovely Realtors in Baton Rouge come every Friday and we just love our fellowship time together and with the Lord! What’s even more striking about the similarities in your story is that on one Friday we started talking skincare. One of our ladies swears by Rodan and Fields! The topic immediately came up about having a skincare party as soon as the study ends. I’ll let you know how that goes, as well. Who knows, maybe I’ll turn into a Realtor/Rodan and Fields consultant as well!
    Needless to say, I’m feeling like there was no mistake (maybe even a little divine intervention!) that I came across this blog today!
    Happy New Year!
