Allison from Fab Rehab Creations scored two end tables for free off Craigslist. One of the tables was in pretty rough shape, but Allison really loved the wood inlays and hoped to salvage them.
She showed the top a lot of tender love and care, carefully sanding it so it could refinished in a dark walnut. The drawer got the same treatment since it also had some pretty inlays that Allison wanted to preserve. The rest of the table was painted gray and then distressed and glazed with stain. I love the “old world look,” as Allison puts it. The two-tone combo is, of course, stunning, especially with the addition of the stained drawer.
