This is one of my favorite tables EVER!  The style is just gorgeous.  I love the legs and even though this was a sad looking piece when I found it, I KNEW there was great potential.

Much of the veneer was peeling off, so I just took the remainder off and gave the top a good sanding.  I wanted to stain it a rich dark brown.

The legs, all six, got two coats of Annie Sloan's newest color, Florence.  This is a wonderful rich turquoise color.  A brown water based wash was given over the legs to give it some definition and aging.  A lovely stencil was applied to the richly stained top in the same wonderful Florence color. 

The whole table was finished in a durable silky finish.
