Freebie Furniture

My husbands company sometimes gets calls to do work on foreclosure homes. Sometimes we get lucky with what the people left behind, like we got lucky with this huge console table. Love free furniture that I actually have use for! This thing was HEAVY, it took 3 guys to transport it.  There were only 4 out of the 18 sets of pulls left on it and it was pretty beat up on one side. Nothing some sandpaper and paint could not fix right? For the color I used Martha Stewart’s ‘Kerry Blue Terrier’. After I primed it and painted 2 coats of the blue, I went over some of the raised spots by hand with sandpaper. Bringing out the white primer and dark wood to give it a weathered look. Then I found really similar hardware on ebay,  and I spray painted it all a dark RustOleum metallic black/brown.
