Sofa Table Has a New Look

I don't know why I put this project off for so long. After I get an idea in my head and then finally do it I always say to myself why didn't I do this sooner. Do you do that, too? I know you do.

I wasn't real sure what color I wanted to use, but am quite pleased at what I came up with.


This is the before. Just a plain pine table.


Here she is with her new color. It is a pretty greenish blue called silver mist by Sherwin Williams. I already had this paint sample since I had used this on my lamps Here.


Of course I couldn't leave it like that. I had to distress it and glaze it.


Just look at that old worn look.








Of course I had to shine her up, too.




Just look at that shine!

Then I had to put her accessories back on.


I sure couldn't leave her nekkid. Now the table color has more of a country French color.


I love how the new color has made the color in these flowers come out. I didn't even realize they were a blue tint.


This shows some more of the sanding and glazing I did.


Here she is at night with just the glow from the lamps. 

I am linking to these parties:
Thanks so much for stopping by again. I truly appreciate your visits.

Y'all come back now,

KIM

I will give a little tutorial of how I refinish furniture like this soon.

  8. Penny, I use minwax finishing paste wax and elbow grease.

  9. Love it! Love your home. If you ever want to house swap - I live near Lake Tahoe...... Of course, you would have to decorate my home while I was away. Ha!

  10. Thanks Karen. That sounds very tempting. Never been and I hear it is quite beautiful.

  11. Whew Kim, I can't keep up with you girlfriend...between projects and posts, no wonder my butt is growing in size. Well I love the way this turned out. I remember thinking initial to leave it as is...but now after seeing it, I love how it turned out...it really goes well with the rest of your pieces and style, it just updated it.

    ReplyDelete
  12. How prety -I would not have thought to pair this color with the red sofa. -Okay the big question before the tutorial is what color glaze did you use and then what did you apply to get the shine ?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Really updates the table! Love the distressing too!

  15. Kim,
    I need to come and take personal lessons from you. I honestly think that you paint a table (and other things)better than anyone I know.

    Do you buff it with Mimwax? ANd what glaze do you use?

    I just got a beautiful glaze, sorta golden and transparent, from Lowes.

    I am painting my sofa table since I got new furniture.It is a golden oak, but has nice lines. If I could do half the job that you did I would be thrilled!!!!
    Your table is just lovely, as is all of your decor!
    I think I could just move into your home and be so happy! YOu have stunning stlye!

  16. Hi Kim, when you first mentioned painting your pine table awhile back I thought...oh why it looks so pretty! But I LOVE the way it turned out! I love the color and the distressing, and how pretty it looks all decked out for fall!

    Great job as always!

    Kat :)

  17. Gorgeous makeover Kim. I love that paint color.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yvonne, you are too kind. For those who have asked. I use Valspar glaze in mocha from Lowe's. I use minwax finishing paste wax in natural or clear(not sure what it says). They also make the wax in colors. I will probably post a tutorial tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  19. WOW.. this is so beautiful... you should open a little gallery...and call it Savy Southern Style. And.. your "brand".. on all your pieces? -sSs-

    ReplyDelete
  20. Hi Kim, your sofa table looks fabulous! What a fun change ... you are so talented! I may be coming to you for advice when/IF I paint the buffet table in the kitchen! LOL. And, yes(!), there are so many projects I've done where I say to myself "why I didn't do this before?"

    ReplyDelete
  21. Your table looks fabulous. Pretty color and your have distressed it perectly. Your vignette is just stunning. You really do have such lovely things. Hugs, Marty

    ReplyDelete
  22. Beautiful, Kim! You really do a wonderful job on the distressing and finishing! Looking forward to that tutorial!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. That looks beautiful. I love the colour you chose. I find it so difficult picking just the right colour, but you did a fantastic job! I've been working on 3 pieces of furniture to refinish/paint, but it's taking me forever!!!!!! Guess it is a bit tricky to find the time with a 3 and 6 year old =)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love the silver mist! Good choice.

    ReplyDelete
  25. What a beautiful transformation! I love everything you did! From the choice of color to the distressing and the shine on it! It is beautiful!

  32. Hi Kim,
    Another inspiring project. You are truly amazing, and I love everything you do. This table is gorgeous! Peggy

  33. Kim, I just love that table painted. It just changes the enitre look of the table. From a plain pine table to a country french chic sofa table. You always do the most amazing projects. You are lucky your husband doesnt mind this. All of the projects you do are just awesome!! Love them.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Soooooo pretty! It makes all of your treasures just pop right out! Who knew? I wish I was as brave as you when it comes to painting things up...if I keep reading your blog, maybe someday I will take the plunge! Thanks for sharing your newfound talents in the paint world!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Beautiful, Kim! Love the color you chose. Your lamps and decor really pop on that color. Nicely done!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh My Gosh!! This transformation is so wonderful!! Just sent it over the top! Great color and you did so awesome on the distressing. Distressing makes me nervous! And the shine? PERFECT!!

    Oh this is SO pretty!!

  37. Love it. You are really good at this technique. It does look great with the lamps!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Love the look of this Kim. What a great color!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Kim- That turned out to be an absolutely fabulous piece. It was pretty before but I LOVE it this way. You did a great job on it and you are right-it picks up that silverish-bluish tint in your vase. I would be interested to know how you got the sheen (polished look) on the finished piece. A tutorial would be wonderful if you have the time to do it! Hugs- Diana

  40. THat is really fantastic. Kim, you are really getting very good at this painting, glazing, distressing thing. You need to start selling pieces girl! Tell Karen you are coming to Charleston first. It is a lot closer than Lake Tahoe!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Great job Kim!! Love this blue grey french colour. I want to paint my hutch this colour.

    ReplyDelete
  42. It looks great, Kim. I have a pine table very similar this is great inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Very pretty color. Love that shine. How does paste wax hold up compared to polyurethane? I've never tried it.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Golly-Pop! You are so awesomely talented! I so wish I had your gumption!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. What a difference! Are you giving lessons? It looks perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I had to jump back and forth, looking at the Before and the After. The After is so dramatic, it's almost impossible to believe that the only thing that changed was the color of the table. It's PERFECT!! Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love it! I wish I had your patience - talent - eye......for how to make something look this good.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Ohhhh so pretty....love the new color!!! The lamps really do pop now! Gorgeous!

  49. Hi Kim...what a differance the paint makes. SO much nicer then the pine...it makes everything just pop with color...it appears to match the lamp shades and I love that big basket underneath...You did a great job.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hi Kim,
    I love the color you chose. I used a very similar one on my GW pine coffee table. But, I didn't distress or glaze it, and that looks fantastic! You must be very careful and patient, your pieces always look so professional when you finish them!
    Great job.

    ReplyDelete
  52. wow, its a beautiful thing, and you have done wonders with it, being capable with your hands is a great thing and you have used your talent very aptly,

    ReplyDelete
  53. I kind of cringe when I see nice wood furniture being painted but your end result looks great. After closer inspection from you wonderful photos I can see what a fine job you have done. Now if I can convince myself to do my pine kitchen table and get your results I'll be happy.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Kim, you just do the most amazing work. I LOVE it!! I wish I had a smidge of your creativity and energy!!

  58. I was thinking oh no, when you said you were painting it, but OH WOW. How wonderful. You really have a talent there. Explain the waxing please?

    ReplyDelete
  59. Kim, great job on the table. I am becoming a huge fan of paint these days and have several projects in mind. I can identify with "having it in my head" and just not getting it done! Linda

    ReplyDelete
  60. I adore that color. And the distressing and glazing are very pretty. You REALLY should start doing this as a business. You could buy pieces off Craigslist and then sell them at a boutique type store!

    ReplyDelete
  61. You have proven once again you are the master at painting and distressing furniture. I love this table! So perfect! Oh if I only had your talent and patience! Excellent job!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I do prefer the change. You did a wonderful job on that table and it looks gorgeous all decked out for fall.

  63. Beautiful! You HAVE to post a tutorial. I have a pine bench my husband bought me about 10 years ago that is just natural yellow pine. I've wanted to paint it or do something to it for years but I've never know just how to paint/distress it. Please tutor me, oh Master Home Redecorator. lol

    ReplyDelete
  64. Kim, you did it again...a beautiful transformation. I couldn't believe you were going to paint that pine sofa table...but then I should have known you would create a masterpiece!!! You are so inspiring and talented. I just love reading your blog and seeing your home and yard. Thank you so much for sharing your world. I look forward to your tutorial.

  73. OOOh Kim...it's beautiful! I agree....you need to open a little gallery of your great finds. Or... better yet, you could just come visit me at my home. I'm just up the road, well.... the interstate in North GA. Keep hoping I'll run into you at Pottery Barn. Sounds like one of your favs. You have a BEAUTIFUL home. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  82. You did a fabulous job on it, Kim! I have that EXACT same table ha! Been wondering if I should go white or frenchy silver! Now I know! I did replace the knobs with metal lion heads. But I've been painting, silver leafing, and rub n buffin my wood frames. Stop by for a look when you get a chance!

    Cheers!

  83. You know, When I first saw the pine table, I thought - that is pretty and it looks really good. But now...Wow! It looks fantastic. You picked the perfect color and distressed & glazed it just right. I really like it so much better. You did an excellent job. I also love how you can coordinate your accessories with your painted pieces.

    ReplyDelete
