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 Mineral Paint's English Rose Jewelry Boxes

This jewelry box is all sparkly, pretty and girly!! The perfect look for a little girl inheriting her late Grandma's jewelry box.




Now onto the 2nd jewelry box, I used Krylon Looking Glass spray paint to give an aged mercury glass feel to the etched glass door pane.


The edges were distressed and Homestead House's espresso wax added for a further aged look with dimension
