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!
