Keeping it Simple

I picked up this little, unfinished wood side table at the thrift store for a few dollars.  A little white paint,
a little grey,
and some stenciling added just a hint of pattern, while keeping it simple enough for any decor.
I painted the top of the table in one direction and stenciled the paint in another to add a bit of texture and character.  Oh, and don't you just love that silver sugar and creamer I picked up at Goodwill--tarnished silver is one of my favorite patinas--sorry Grandma, no polishing for me!

  1. I love tarnished silver too .... the patina is a great story of use.

  2. That little table looks great! I love the look of tarnished silver too, somehow it makes a piece look older and more special/exciting, like a treasure from a recently dug up hoard!

  3. The table is charming! Adore silver, tarnished or polished!

  4. How lovely! I love the colour and great stencil pattern too!

  5. Perfect combo, I love grey and white together, and the stencil is just the right touch. Lovin' your projects :)

    Hugs, Tanya

  6. Very cute table, love the stenciling. Whenever I buy silver I always look for the tarnished pieces, I love the patina on them. great job on the table
