Drop Leaf Table that OOZES Charm


Faye from Farm Life Best Life tried out our new limited edition color, Fairy Ring for this lovely drop leaf table transformation! Isn’t it charming?

Once upon a time there was a gorgeous drop leaf table, that with time lost its’ charm. It sat in a garage and collected dust for years, while sadly it became forgotten… till one day I came across it, and vowed to bring back its’ loveliness.

This drop leaf table now oozes rustic charm, and roars practicality! With gate leg extending leaves and tidy drawers at BOTH ends, you can transform a dinner for two into a dinner for the family, and/or accommodate gatherings in no time. A versatile piece that would be a lovely accent and/or dining table in your home!

My drop leaf transformation to drop dead gorgeous went like this:

  • Cleaned piece thoroughly with TSP and water, and removed hardware
  • Applied 2 coats of Country Chic Paint’s ‘All-In-One Decor Paint’ in their new limited edition colour ‘Fairy Ring’ to the top and body ~ a charming beige colour with slight green undertones
  • Applied 2 coats of Country Chic Paint’s ‘All-In-One Decor Paint’ in the colour ‘Vanilla Frosting’ to the drawers ~ PSSST… there is a drawer on EACH side of this table!
  • Highly distressed areas for an oozing shabby chic effect with sanding block
  • Reapplied hardware, and installed new drawer pulls
  • Applied 1 coat of Country Chic Paint’s ‘Natural Wax’ to the entire piece ~ for a protective and professional finish
