Before and After : Antique Davies-Putnam Console Table in gilded Onyx

This beauty was absolutely a no-brainer for me to pick up!! I am still completely obsessed with the long fluted legs, and wanted to give this late 1800's/early 1900's Davies-Putnam Console table a chic, sleek modern update. I sanded the scratches out of the top, then hand-painted it with Pure Earth Paint in Onyx, sealing with Diamond Coat in Matte (if you're looking for this product, it's now called Rock Hard) for a soft, barely-there sheen with a lot of protection. This classic look was enhanced by just the smallest amount of accent gilding on the drawers and Rub n Buff on the drawer pulls.

This chic update to a classic drop-leaf table will be a stunning, versatile accent for many years to come! I hope the new owners take photos of it in its new home for me! :)
