Pretty Gray Table and some bathroom changes......

Did you get your free quart of paint at Ace Hardware this weekend.
Well, I did and I also found a great little table to try it out.  The color is Lighthouse Gray by Clark and Kensington, their new paint line.

I had some leftover french gray that I used to dry brush the table.
Orignially it was the mahogany color.

I found this paint to be easy to work with and that it coated very well.
btw, Ace did not pay me for my opinion.  Just sayin.

If you missed the giveway from Ace, don't worry cause they are doing it again next week.  All I can say is get there early and you'll need their coupon at check out.  Got mine on their website.
We love us some free paint!

Thought I'd show you all where I moved this bench.
It was in the dining room and the color wasn't working with all the blue grays going on.  So in here it goes.

This is the master bath and it's enormous and hard to work with.
I've done the best I can trying to cozy it up.

 Pay no attention to the mirror underneath the vanity.  It's the one I have to use to put on makeup.  It magnifies lots and I need that!!
Well, this is about all I have for you right now.  So remember to get out there this week and create, sew, paint, photography, find and repurpose something wonderful and share it with all of us.

The sides on that table are to die for gorgeous and I love its new color! I also really love the lines on the bench in front of your tub.

I did NOT know about the free paint giveaway. Thanks for letting us know. I LOVE that color is just soft and pretty and I like the little table painted. My hubby's gramma had a similar one that was cherry wood.

Love that bench in your bathroom. Heck, I would love that bench anywhere. xo Diana

Looks like you have done a great job cozying up the bathroom!


Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Great little table, Sissie! I love the color you chose! I found out this past week that Ace must be doing this paint giveaway each Saturday this month. I thought it was just the first Saturday! I did grey on a little thrift store table, too. I just need to wax it. I've been loving grey lately, although, I'm using it sparingly.

Cindy said...

What a precious little table. The scrolly stuff on the side really really pops in that color. Is part of that your new Ace Hardware color? Love the cozy adorable bench in the bathroom too...
and i have one of those magnifying mirrors, i can't see anything anymore, it drives me nuts...


Marydon said...

Oh, yes I did .... the first customer of the day at Ace. I picked up a pretty pink. Now to figure out what to do with it.

I so love what you have done with this stand Sissie. You have such a keen eye for creating such beauty. Love your home.

Have a great week ~

Theresa said...

I did get my free paint last week, and had my Mom go get me another quart this week. I too thought it was pretty good. Still think I will have to do 2 coats or primer first in my sunroom. It is so great they gave the free quart though--makes me want to go there more often. I will definitly pay for the paint next time:)

That little table with all the cut work is sooo cute!! I have not been able to make to ACE the last 2 weekends...I don't get up until the crack of 10 LOL! that would be a problem if I have to get there early!


Gail said...

Now that is a pretty gray table Sissie! Your master bathroom is gorgeous and I love that bench. I have one of those mirrors too and it's mounded to the wall...LOL! Enjoy your day, Gail

Daphne Nicole & Lynda Cade said...

Hi Sissie, love your table. I'm so loving the color gray these days!!!
Hugs~~~ Daphne

Sares said...

Love the bench in the bath! Great idea. I'll have to give the Ace paint a try. I may have to cut back on the Chalk Paint it's so spendy. I love the gray/white mix but last time I used it on furniture it took forever to sell. We have some new clientele at the shop though so maybe I'll try it again and see how it goes. I did just do a couple chalkboards like that, they can be my guinea pig!

Teresa@Magazine Your Home said...

Gorgeous pillows, love the settee and the mirror under your vanity?? I have the same one under mine LOL


Hi Sissie, I love the painted table and I also love how you added your bench to your bathroom, great idea! I haven't stopped by in forever so I need to get caught up and see all the lovely things you have been up to. I hope you and your family are well!
