Furniture is surprisingly more sentimental than we often expect. In a world where we buy a lot of particle-board filled, disposable furniture, we can tend to forget that furniture can carry so much sentiment.It is part of why I love the most about refinishing older furniture. I have pieces that had stayed in families for multiple generations, pieces that have been saved from destruction to be a part of new memories, and pieces that hold a special place in someone’s heart.
This piece was a request by a customer to find a step-up side table, “the type she grew up with.” She was redecorating her family room, and wanted a piece that brought back some of her childhood memories.
When we found this table, we agreed it was a great mix of sentimental style, and clean modern lines.
I made a custom grey, a mix of 2 parts Hurricane and 1 part Simplicity of Country Chic’s All In One Decor Paint. The key to custom blends is precise measurements and make sure you stir, stir, stir!
I adore the end result! I think the custom blend is a fabulous shade of grey. Hurricane is so versatile and can handle being lightened and still keep such wonderful depth of colour.
