library inspired side table

I have been extremely inspired lately by library / card catalogue style furniture lately.  Combined with classic colours, it's a style that is versatile in any decor scheme.  Some women love make-up and fashion, but put a couple label hardware plates in my hand with a can of paint and I am one happy lady!  


Here's the table before:


Definitely not terrible, but a little worn.  The knob was actually perfectly fine, but I opted to change it for a farmhouse meets library vibe!

I started by my usual prep: CLEAN and SCUFF.  I followed that up with two coats of Sunday Tea - one of the prettiest neutral greige shades in the Country Chic paint lineup.


When it was thoroughly dry I lightly sanded it smooth and gave it a very light distressing around the edges.  


I gave the piece a light coat of wax to give it a slight sheen.  Country Chic Paint's All-in-One paint formula has a durable topcoat built in, so you don't have to worry about putting an additional topcoat on it if you don't want to!


This piece has a lighter feel to it now, doesn't it?  Fresh and clean with a little library inspiration! You can purchase this paint colour here, and make sure you are following Country Chic Paint on Facebook for more inspiration using this colour!
