INLAWS HALL CONSOLE TABLE GETS UPDATED WITH SAVANNAH MIST CHALK PAINT!
Hi SI family, thanks for joining me today! Today’s post is a family affair. This hall console table belonged to my inlaws. It was originally a long sofa table with a dark factory stained finish.
My brother-in-law Mike and Nick (aka MMM) worked their magic and shortened it up turning it into a more modern hallway table.
It was delivered looking like this. All clean, sanded, and ready for paint. Now that’s service!
Here’s what a little paint and stain can do!
I LOVE this color!! I’m always amazed at how the ‘right’ color can update and transform an entire piece.

HALL TABLE MAKEOVER
My original thought was to paint the body and stain the top. But as in the case of many makeovers — this tabletop led me in a different direction.
Here’s the 411.
I started by adding these Prima Decor Molds to either side of the table front. If you haven’t tried making your own DIY Furniture Molds, I’m sharing a full tutorial here. DIY Molds are cost-effective and super fun and even the smallest mold can make a BIG impact.
Then it was time to prime. I used BIN Shellac based primer to hide all the dark spots and bleedthrough.
Within 30-40 minutes of applying the primer, I lightly sanded with a 220 grit and then started painting.
I painted 2 coats of Savannah Mist. If you missed how I paint spindles, legs, feet or anything rounded in a matter of minutes, come check out my video tutorial on How To Paint Spindles WITHOUT Brush Marks! Super easy… I literally #slapiton!
Here’s where this tabletop wanted to do its own thing.
The middle veneer was thinning out in spots and some of the dark spots still weren’t budging. To hide all these flaws, I decided to paint the middle panel to match the body.
I’m really happy with it. The gray stain with wood grain showing through frames the Savannah Mist insert beautifully. It looks fresh and lovely!
Nick mentioned his parents were asking if I worked on this yet. I hope they feel I did their table justice and they like the new look as much as I do!
And I hope you like it too! 🙂
