Country Chic Character and Sweet Imperfections


After several different attempts, Faye from Farm Life Best Life finally found the perfect color combination for this table with Cheesecake, Cranberry Sauce, and both Natural and Antiquing Wax!

Although I do love my perennial garden, and I enjoy annuals in the years I find the time and $ to put some in…my favourite flowers are wildflowers.

You see, wildflowers don’t have to be planted precisely and in the right type of soil, they’re not delicate — very robust rather, they’re not prim and sequentially placed, and they don’t cost a penny.

Wild flowers are full of elegant character and sweet imperfections, and where my family and I live and farm, all it takes to see an abundance of them is a peaceful walk up our lane. We are truly graced with and surrounded by an abundance of natural beauty.

My feelings for flowers are equally the same for furniture. When I came across this departed and forgotten end table, my heart was singing while I worked on reviving it into a charming piece with an abundance of country chic character and sweet imperfections — and so comfortably accomplished with Country Chic Paint’s elegant and robust line of products!

My comfortable and elegant process went like this:

  • Lightly sanded down piece, and wiped down clean
  • Applied 1 coat of Country Chic Paint’s ‘All-In-One Decor Paint’ in the colour ‘Harmony’ ~ thinking that was the colour I wanted for this piece to then learn that it was not… won’t know unless you try!
  • Applied 1 coat of Country Chic Paint’s ‘All-In-One Decor Paint’ in the colour ‘Cobblestone’ ~ thinking that this might be the colour I wanted to then also learn that it was not… if at first you don’t succeed try again
  • Put the piece away until I was certain of the colour I wanted for it… “sleeping on it” can bring out one’s best creativity
  • Applied 2 coats of Country Chic Paint’s ‘All-In-One Decor Paint’ in my favourite colour ‘Cheesecake’ to the body
  • Applied 2 coats of Country Chic Paint’s ‘All-In-One Decor Paint’ in my 2nd favourite colour ‘Cranberry Sauce’ to the top
  • Heavily sanded down piece with sanding block ~ for the heavily distressed look I now knew I was after
  • Applied 1 coat of Country Chic Paint’s ‘Antiquing Wax’, followed by 1 coat of ‘Natural Wax’ ~ this step and product my friends is like icing on the cake

Like wildflowers,
Grow somewhere you can be you;
Somewhere you can be true;
Somewhere you’re free;
Somewhere you’re truly happy.

— Jerico Silvers

I’m so very pleased with the end result — and have no regrets about the first coats of ‘Harmony’ and ‘Cobblestone’… as I <3 how those colours came through in the highly distressed areas!

This country chic character end table with sweet imperfections is for YOU, and I have much certainty you will find much happiness with it!
