Farmhouse Chic Table

By taking an old outdated forest green sofa table and re-staining the top with dark walnut and painting the base in old white then distressing, transforms this piece into a one-of-a-kind treasure!  It’s 29″ tall so it would be perfect to use as a craft table or desk.  It would also look awesome as an entry or the traditional sofa table.  So many possibilities.  I replaced the old wooden knob for a new (old looking) bronze metal knob.  To be honest, I had no inspiration for this table when we first brought it home.  I usually know exactly what I want to do the second I see a piece.  So this just kind of evolved and I totally love it now!  Good bye “country”, hello “farmhouse chic”!

It’s amazing what a knob or pull can add to a piece.  I bought a bright, colorful porcelain knob to put on this table but it just didn’t look right.  I went and grabbed this knob that I already owned and it was a perfect fit!  I’ll save the other one for another project!  Believe me, it won’t be wasted ~ it’s super cute!
