Restoration Hardware Inspired Tables

I love the look of iron and reclaimed wood together, I feel like it brings the best of both worlds together…clean lines and old character.

I showed my dad some tables in the RH catalog a while back to see if he could weld some frames for me. He took down some measurements and next thing I know, he’s got a set of tables ready for some wood.

We have made a few sets of this style and have a slight variation to the style for the next round, just to keep things different…stay tuned for those!

Grey Washed Armoire

I picked up this armoire at an estate sale a couple of weeks ago, I really liked the curvy lines so it came home with us!  It was the typical late 70′s dark walnut finish, I forgot to take a before pic!

I started with a light grey diy chalk paint, followed by two different paint washes…the first was an onyx, which is almost black, then followed by a coco wash.  The coco wash really softened up the black wash and tied it all together.  I finished it off with some furniture wax from Miss Mustard Seed.  It is by far the best furniture wax I have ever used, it smells like lotion and goes on oh so smooth!

Here are some pics…

Restoration Hardware Subway Signs Knockoff

When I saw these signs at Restoration Hardware, I fell in love with them instantly, but not so much their $550 price tag!  They are currently on sale for $412….not much better.

So, when I came across these ugly canvases, I knew I could re-create them!!

The first step was painting them all black, then I taped off a border, to make the white frame.  Then I measured and figured out how big to make my stencils.  I cut my stencils and laid them out and traced….

Then it’s just a matter of painting the letters!

I debated between selling them and keeping them, I think for now I will be keeping them!  I hung them in our basement and they work great in this area!
