Another Table Re-Do

This is another great table that my mother-in-law gave me.  It was painted white when it came to me and was not in the greatest shape.  It was purchased from an auction with intentions of being repainted.  I just the love the details - especially those little spindles!

I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Chateau Grey.  I sanded and then used my homemade combo wax - regular Minwax paste wax mixed with Annie Sloan dark wax.  Those 4 blank rectangles (at 12, 3, 6 and 9 like a clock-face) were just calling out to me for something so I added the fleur dis lis.  I sanded those and wiped again with the combo wax (yes, I've officially named it that).
So...even though I adore this table, I'm a huge fan of the fleur dis lis, and it matches my home - I'm still selling it!
