Farmhouse Rustic Grey Accent Table

This rustic farmhouse dresser in grey I did awhile back has been the top post on my Pinterest page for many months. It seems to be a much loved finished so when I purchased these country planked looked table set I knew the paint finish would look awesome on them too.


 I started with the round accent / end table first.



Step one was to power sand the top and shelf to smooth the old finish then spray with shellac to seal and give an even surface

Fusion chocolate "matching" nightstands

New hardware was added to complete the "matching" process. Same color, same hardware... Now they are the perfect his and hers nightstands, agree?
