Lee Ann from Creative Moments used Lazy Linen and black glaze to bring out the beautiful shape and details of this antique side table!

When perusing the Country Chic paint color chart, I spied Lazy Linen and thought it might be the perfect “grey”.

I purchased this sweet “chair side table” (according to the Eaton’s price tag still affixed to it).

After making a few repairs and giving it a good scrubbing, the paint process was underway. As with some light colors, the first coat look fairly sketchy and not at all grey.

But 2 coats later sponge sanded and distressed edges between coats it looked well.

To add dimension and keep it aged I washed the crevices with a darker grey all around then gave the whole thing a coat of Tough Coat. Once dry it was time to add black glaze to the crevices and all the edges to add yet more aging and dimension. This task took quite some time with small artist brushes. I followed it up with a final coat of Tough Coat. The original hardware was scrubbed and put back on and it is now ready to add character to your home.

Lee Ann {Creative Moments}

Hello, my name is Lee Ann and I am the creator at Creative Moments. I have always had a love for vintage pieces and an interest in recycling/repurposing. Creative Moments became the outlet for both. Reloving a piece of furniture no longer in style, in disrepair or tossed aside into a “new, one of a kind” piece makes my heart sing. I love seeing these pieces becoming a part of a home, adding character and charm and providing years of enjoyment.
