Grain Sack Striped End Table

photo 1 (22) This started as a $12 end table from a local (well local at the time) thrift store. I was shopping for more pieces to paint and thought this would be a great quick project.

I also decided to get creative. Which made for a not-so-quick makeover, but an awesome one. I started by giving the table a coat of ASCP Duck Egg. I have been loving grain sacks recently. Do you know what I am talking about?

Isn’t this just lovely? I adore the rustic and simple look and rich colors. And although I don’t have any grain sacks (yet), the idea to give a similar look to this table would bring in that rustic feel I love. Something like this…

So I got busy taping off stripes. I like the 3 stripe pattern like in the table above. I started with two thin stripes in French Linen. I used “delicate” tape in the Scotch Blue so that it wouldn’t peel off the Duck Egg.

After it dried thoroughly, I taped off and painted a bolder middle stripe in ASCP Old White.

Sigh. I instantly fell in love and knew we would keep this one. I distressed all over with a sanding block to give it some patina like textile grain sacks have.

I finally finished the knob by mod-podging a sheet of hymn lyrics onto the wooden pull.

I think it completes and personalizes the look for us in our home.

What do you think? It goes perfectly in our new living room! I think it really adds to our vintage-fresh-farmhouse style.
