Painted End Table ~ a Makeover ~ 3rd Time's a Charm(er)

Here's our little roadside rescue end table.

It came home with us looking like this:

but it had so much potential...

I thought I would give it some color and try my hand at spray painting.  

So it became this:

And we loved the rich blue.  For a time.

Eventually I wanted to use it in another space and the blue just wouldn't work.

So I gave it a couple coats of white paint,

then added in some Maison Blanche in Cobblestone giving it an entirely new look...

A quick coating of wax with a bit of dark stain mixed in gave it a little bit of aged character:

It's neutral enough now to go in almost any room in my home. 
This is good because if you know me you know I love to move things around...a lot.  :)

For now it finishes off this space nicely.

It definitely needs some oil rubbed bronze on those little knobs for some contrast.  
I'm trying to decide if I want to give it a monogram on the door front.  
The white raised panel seems to be asking for something but I ran out of the Cobblestone color so I couldn't finish it with that even if I'd wanted.  
What do you think?  Gold on the edges of the door panel?  
A Monogrammed Letter for our last name?  Any other suggestions?

  2. I agree, the door needs something but overall it looks really great.

  3. I am loving the makeover! I would add gold paint in the edges (front door panel) I love that you added legs to it, I would have never thought of that. I am having a linky party on sunday (starts on saturday at 6pm) please come and link this up. http://suburbsmama.blogspot.com/

  6. I'm going to steal your rug, and pillows along with this beauty. Look at that mag rack inside! I love it!!!

  7. Loving it! That color is amazing; I haven't heard of it. I say MONOGRAM! But maybe in a light neutral a few shades darker than the table but not black? Great job!

  13. I adore this table so much, Sherry! I shared on my facebook page last week. When my husband saw it he sent me an email telling me how much he loved it as well! Beautiful, beautiful makeover!

  14. Love the soft neutral look! What a great find! You have made it over beautifully!

  17. I love that you keep changing up the same piece!! The blue is FABULOUS but of course it doesn't work in every area. Love your new neutral look!

  18. Third time is a charm...I LOVE this table's latest look!

  19. Sherry, I really like the whole room! And I agree- I would've enjoyed the blue for awhile but the new colors are perfect for your space. I would say maybe add a bit of gold to the edges if you want. I am your newest blog follower. :)

  20. I LOVE the final makeover! It's so neat that you added "legs" to the piece! I think the monogram is a great idea or maybe even a silhouette. Great job!
