I'd Never Noticed Parlor Tables Before
It's a funny thing. You buy a white car and all of a sudden you notice every white car on the road. That's what has happened to me. I saw a really cool table at an estate auction a while ago and won the bid. After I refinished it, all of a sudden I saw parlor tables everywhere - antique stores, estate sales, online...
Today I introduce you to Hannah, named after the man who owned the store that made her - Hannah's Furniture in Kenosha, Wisconsin. She had a tag on her underside:
She was quite beat up with gouges on her table top.
We decided to pretty her up with Pure & Original Classico in Black Hills (a deep green) and add a bit of glitz with Champagne Metallic accents.

STEP #1 - Prep by cleaning, sanding and filling in holes, gouges and scratches.
STEP #2 - Prime. I sprayed Zinsser 123 tinted in gray with my HomeRight Finish Max.
STEP #3 - Paint with Pure & Original Classico in Black Hills (it's a very dark green). The coverage of this paint is amazing. Love, love, love this paint.
STEP #4 - Dry brush the details on the legs and apron with metallic paint.
STEP #5 - Stencil a Moroccan Tile design on the top with Rustoleum's Champagne metallic paint.
We found this table at a consignment shop that we like to visit every few months.
