DIY The RH Coffee Table Look

When I found this table on the top of a snow mound
at the end of someone's driveway...

I knew right away the look I wanted.

This is the before... 
typical 1970's coffee table... but not for long!

I love the look of Restoration Hardware furniture.

The greyish-brown color and the heavy, chunky
furniture is beautiful but truthfully won't fit in every house.

I thought the piece I found had many of the same lines
as the inspiration piece but on a smaller scale...

I painted my piece with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint 
in French Linen.  When the paint dried I gave the top
a wash of Coco by spraying water from a spray bottle
over the top of the piece. I used a dry brush of Coco
and blended the Coco into the French Linen.

The color wash on the top of the table gave it a slight brownish 
grey streaky color which is just what I was going for.

This coffee table gives the look of RH without the 
massive size or the price tag.

Update... This table sold in one day and the
customer sent me a picture of it in her 
beautiful living room!
