The Drum Table

9.11.2011

I am so glad I purchased this drum table. I love the way it turned out. Even though the guy at the store cringed at the thought of me painting it it really is what was best since it was so damaged.

Here is a reminder of the shape this table was in when I brought it home.

After.  If you missed what I used to fix the damaged area check out that post here.


 
I used ASCP, of course, in Chateau Gray again. This gray is very green. It is the same as my chest in the foyer and my mantel in the great room. It is funny how it looks lighter on this table.

I painted all the decorative parts, brass feet, and handle with craft paint in wrought iron.

 I sanded several places and used clear and dark waxes.


Where the leather was damaged by water or something looks much better now.

Just look at that shine.

Love the way the beaded trim looks now.



Y'all can tell what room it is in if you read my blog much. I will show you this in the room and the vignette on top soon.

Have a wonderful week!

  1. The table turned out great. I try not tell anyone anymore that I will paint a piece, they get upset and tell me how painting it will affect the antique price. I definitely love the gray color by ASCP.

  4. That table was just screaming for some paint wasn't it? LOL I have a table very similar and it almost looks just as bad. I think you have inspired me to order my first can of AS paint. It turned out beautifully. Love it! Have a great week. Blessings, Barb

  5. Wow, that table looks great. I love the bead work around the edge. This is a nice 'rescue' of a beat up table! I wonder what the seller thinks now? :-) Pamela

  46. Oh my Kim, you are on a roll with all of your chalk paint projects...I have not gotten a chance to break out of my mold and give it a try but with this latest table of yours I will have to admit it is tempting. Your table looks fabulous...I guess it is the waxing step that causes me concern. But you my dear have definitely got this stuff down to perfection. Since I have no chalk paint projects of my own, I put a link to you in my latest post.

  48. I just bought some Chateau Grey at Robyn Stoy Designs for a drop leaf kitchen table I am working on. So glad to see this outcome!

  49. It really turned out pretty.

  50. Hey Kim, it looks so much better! I love it. I have wanted a drum table for years. When you use the dark wax, do you only apply that in the areas that you want dark? And the clear wax all over?
    Thanks,
    Glenda

    ReplyDelete
  51. Glenda, yes, I always put the clear wax all over first. Then the brown can go all over too or in selected areas. You can also mix the clear and brown together.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Fabulous remake! I really need to try some of that ASCP.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Kim you've got that magic touch and yes I know what room it's in. :)

  54. I love it! It came out so nice and so much better than before. And I barely even notice the beaded trim that you had to add! Grat job Kim!
