This matching pair of country farmhouse side tables was painted by Sarah from Craftwork Trading Co.. She used Pebble Beach and Natural Wax to create the perfect, charming farmhouse finish!


Immediately I loved the shape of these side tables as they offered the ultimate storage solution with drawers and a lower shelf. However, I did not love the very dark black finish. I really wanted to create a softer feel.

Since the side tables had a shiny black finish and were not raw wood, I hand sanded each using a 220 grit sanding block. This created a texture to better allow my paint to adhere.

I knew right away I wanted to achieve a lighter, more country feel for these tables. I loved the softness of Country Chic Paint’s color, Pebble Beach. It was going to allow me to create a modern farmhouse look I desired. After applying two coats of Country Chic Paint’s Pebble Beach I decided to keep the very matte finish.

I opted to use Country Chic Paint’s Natural Wax to help me achieve this look as well as protect the tables from daily use and wear. The last touch that brought these side tables to life was replacing the old silver handles. I opted for a contrasting look and added these brass cup pulls which were the perfect choice. These side tables went from dark and dreary to soft and modern, the perfect modern farmhouse composition!

From a very young age I dabbled in most mediums. From abstracts with acrylic on canvas to watercolour scenery. I have always been an artist. Throughout my adult life I studied visual arts and art history completing a visual arts diploma before the age of twenty two. I currently enjoy decorating and renovating my 50s farmhouse. My passion for home decor, vintage and painted furniture has lead me to open my own shop Blend Creative Vintage in the Cowichan valley, with my amazing business partner Wendy.
