Aubusson Blue End Table

When we first got married we had two end tables similar to this- with the “step” look as I call it. IMG_1231 I wasn’t crazy about them at the time. But last summer I found these lovelies and my love for them has been restored. IMG_8679 So when I saw this guy recently I snatched it up. This style of end table provides great space and function. Plus the hardware was beautiful. photo (1) I couldn’t wait to try out Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Aubusson Blue and went for it on this piece. IMG_1222 I loved it. At first it seemed a little more teal than I wanted. But once I distressed and waxed it the blue deepened. It still has a teal hue to it though, like a peacock color. IMG_1229 IMG_1234 IMG_1231 I kept the hardware as-is since it’s a pretty brass with patina that really pops against the blue. IMG_1233 IMG_1235 The hubs and I seriously talked about keeping this one. It’s so pretty. But it’s not right for our home right now and so it’s in the booth. And I bet it won’t be there long. IMG_1282 What do you think of this end table? Are you a fan of retro end tables?
