My sister began watching for road side rescues when I began this business. This week’s project is a prime example of this. It saddens me deeply to see perfectly good furniture set out on trash day, just because it’s ugly or worn. So it ends up in the dump, and in its place a run of the mill replacement piece from a big box store.

This end table is designed with a faux bamboo look so I decided to go with more earthy natural colors. I really wanted to use one of my newer colors, CeCe Caldwell’s Cinco Bayou Moss. These paints are also green like Annie Sloan Chalk Paints. This is a clay chalk style paint and this line has some great color choices. I used this color for the legs and outer framing for the table and for the muted stencil on the top.

The center of the table top and the woven shelf were painted with ASCP Country Grey (more of a rich cream color). Sand paper in hand, intense distressing ensued! Y’all know by now, I love the distressed and worn look for furniture, as well as the chippy look too.
