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

I knew right away the look I needed it to have.

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

If you love the look of Restoration Hardware furniture then check this out...

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

The piece I found had many of the same lines and features
as a RH inspiration piece but on a smaller scale.

I began by painting my piece with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in French Linen.  

When the French Linen dried I gave the top a wash of Coco by first spraying water from a spray bottle over the top of the piece then slightly blending the 2 colors.

The color wash of Coco 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 you the look of RH without the massive size or the huge price tag.
